Oh Alice... Chapter 20: In My Country

"Well, in our country," said Alice, still panting a little, "you'd generally get to somewhere else -- if you ran very fast for a long time, as we've been doing."
"A slow sort of country!" said the Queen. "Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"

(Through the Looking Glass,
Chapter 2)

Hello, friends! Can you believe July is here already? Such a fun time of year for summer fun...parades, BBQ's, you name's THAT time of year!

To honor our country's Independence day, with the 4th being right around the corner, we have a PATRIOTIC theme for you today! WONDERLAND has gone red, white, and blue! Yep, that's right!

Call it inspiration, a color challenge....I guess it's really both! Your mission this week is to use RED, WHITE and BLUE on your card or project!

Well... Seeing as my Home & Native Land is a wee bit more North... I went with a Patriotic Project more in keeping with our July 1st Canada Day. :O)
I made a Postcard using a pattern paper background of a night sky and 'lit it up' with Jewel Tone heat embossed Fireworks.
The Flag, Fireworks and I heart Canada! stamps are from Stampin'Up!
......EH!is a Micheal's Bin Stamp
The little Mousey-Native was from the Freebie Set that came attached to my Papercraft essentials Magazine. He was holding a flower I masked out for the Flag. I stamped the Flag in black, then again in red and cut the red one out and attached with pop-dots.
Whole project is WELL sprayed in Red & Blue Glimmer Mist.
