Red, White & Blue for Craft Us Crazy

I love creating July 4th decor.   There's something about the colors and flags...   So, the new challenge at Craft Us Crazy , Red, White & Blue or Vintage, is perfect!  The sponsor this week is Limited Runs.
The winner receives three images of their choice!  Check out all the details at the Craft Us Crazy blog.  Here's my July 4th banner hanging on my mom and dad's fireplace.
  I used papers from Bo Bunny...
 pretty red glitter from Martha Stewart
 and a couple of vintage images.  The calendar circles are from The Cutting Cafe.  It's hard to believe that it's so close to July 4th - Christmas is just around the corner!  Dont' forget to check out all the other creations at Craft Us Crazy!

ETA:  Thanks, Judy for suggesting the challenge blog Decorate to Celebrate.  What a fun idea!  I'm taking your advice and linking up my banner there.  Thanks, again!

  10. Bunting! I love bunting! This is so much nicer than the other 4th of July stuff out there. What is it with national holidays and an abundance of tacky crap?
