FF#85...Happy (belated) 4th of July!

So...well...we're only a few days late!  Many apologies, you know how it is sometimes...life is what happens when you are busy making other plans!  However...I really think that the challenge we have for you is not limited to just one day a year...but before we get to it...let's talk about some fabulous entries we had in our War of the Roses challenge!  Gorgeous!  It was difficult to pick just a few, but here are our FF#84 Top 3:

Congratulations all!  Beautiful displays of Roses!  Please feel free to grab our Shoe of the Week badge from the sidebar!

and now the FF#84 Shoe of the Week goes to:

What a delightful use of Roses as embellishments on paper crafted SHOES!  To die for!!  Please feel free to grab our Shoe of the Week badge from the sidebar!

and now on to FF#85!

This week we are happy to welcome back Digi's With Attitude as our Sponsor!

About them- Digi's With Attitude! is a Digital Stamp Company that brings Sass & Attitude to your stamping projects!
Meet the newest Attitudes's in town! 'Grumpy Gretchen' is a sure beauty with sexy curves and very unique facial features. Her hairstyle constantly change, as does her clothing and element she in.
She is sassy and isn't afraid to show it! Everyone loves Grumpy Gretchen. We know you will too!

You can now meet the new Animal with Attitude! too! They are in the store and ready for you to adopt them.

All images are 300 dpi and come in both JPEG & PNG instant downloads.

For FF#85, we want you to show us your PATRIOTIC side!  Let's see your flags waving high, your red, your white, your blue, your apple pie, whatever it is that makes you feel PATRIOTIC!

While July 4th has technically passed, I'm sure we all have some great pics from this past Holiday weekend that most definitely need to be turned into fab scrapbook pages, or some cards that need to be made and sent to friends and family both at home and abroad, or maybe...you have some time to make a card for a service member who could use a little taste of the homefront!

If so, check out the folks at Operation Write Home, who are always looking for some cards to share with our Soliders, Sailors, Marines and Airmen.  The cards they collect are packaged and sent to our servicemembers so they can help heroes keep in touch with home (their slogan, not mine).  There are specific restrictions on items and products allowed on the cards (i.e. NO GLITTER), so please check out the OWH Card Guidelines for additional information!  I can think of nothing better than to give a card for a great cause (IMHO).  I hear the next major event they are seeking cards for is Back to School (just saying) And now...I step off my soap box...

I'm so excited to share with you the fabulous, gorgeous samples created by our DT:

Delicious!  Absolutely LOVE every single bit of their samples!  So thankful to have such a fabulous team!

Oh wait...one last announcement...this particular challenge will run for two(ish) weeks!  You will have until July 14th to enter!  Looking forward to seeing your Patriotic art!  Please use a direct link to your project and include a link back here to us at the Shoe!  If you are making a card for Operation Write Home, please include a link to their site (help spread the word!).  All entries must be new as of 7/5/11.  If you are posting to an online gallery, please use the tag FF#85.  Have fun!
