Cuttlebug Challenge CBI #42

This week's challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot was "to make a gatefold card, with your favorite cuttlebug folder, for National Friendship Week".
My favorite folder is Perfectly Paisley. I have a dear friend who just loves paisleys, so I made this card for her. (I hope she does visit my blog before she gets it). I don’t usually make gatefold cards, and this one is not my favorite. I think it still need something before I will be satisfied with it. Maybe a turquoise and black flower or something. If you have any ideas, feel free to post them.

Cuttlebug Challenge CBI #41

I am almost caught up with the challenges for this month.
Challenge #41 was to create a altered projects from items in your recycle bin.
This old and very stained cork coaster had seen its last use.

Using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder and some printed paper covered with packing tape (to make it water proof), it is now useable again.

Last weeks challenge was a sketch. Here is my take on it:

The first challenge for the month of July on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog was to use the colors red, white, and blue; include some buttons and use the Swiss Dots embossing folder:
My image is a replica of a vintage 4th of July postcard.
I combined this challenge with Our Creative Corner's Red, White and Blue challenge and Charisma Cardz challenge #26 buttons.

SNR Card Universe "Oh Say Can You See" 4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the SNR Card Universe "Oh Say Can You See" 4th of July Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Basic Jess you are on the right track! If you didn't you may want to hop on over to SNR Card Universe and start the hop at the beginning.
My project is all about being proud to be an American. The photo is from when I was in the United States Air Force. The paper/kit I used is "Washington DC" by Ducky's Designs.
Next on the hop is Change of Heart . Be sure to stop by there and visit.
Now about my blog candy. (Sorry, but I can only ship to a USA address.) I am calling it "Char's Red, White, and Blue Surprise Candy". I am not going to tell you what it is because it would not be a surprise then. I will tell you that it is several items in the same colors as our flag, and if you are a card maker and/or scrapper you will like it. So what do you have to do to be entered into this giveaway? Tell me where the last place you saw the American flag flying. That's it (other comments are appreciated). You have until noon this Monday to post. I will draw a name then, and announce it later on that day in a post.
