Welcome and let the challenge begin....

Hi and welcome to our new blog. I hope this Saturday finds you happy and well rested. I'm so excited about offering this challenge and hope that everyone has so much fun with it. With all this snowy and cold weather lately, it has us here at Paper Wings longing for the lazy days of summer. That being said, let's celebrate Fourth of July in January!!! Your challenge today is to create a card, layout, or altered item using Red, White and Blue. So reach for your flip flops and bikinis and get yourself in the mood for summer! This challenge will run from today 1-22-11 to midnight Friday 1-28-11. Anyone can participate, but prizes are for residents of the continental United States only. And speaking of prizes, your prize this week is a Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Die!

Here is are a couple samples for this week's challenge:
