Less is More 70...Red White and Blue...LATE!!

Never mind challenges this week...this week has been enough of one all by itself!!  I just got home from substitute teaching today, to make this card before the challenge at Less is More ended and I DIDN'T MAKE IT...and found an email from Chrissie and Mandi...BLOW ME AWAY...I was named the winner of the month at Less is More!!  Chrissie and Mandi...all I can really say is I'm honored beyond belief!!!  Can I tell you???  Less is More was the first challenge blog I found over a year ago when searching for something that would highlight clean and simple stamping.  I FELL IN LOVE with not only the challenges, but Chrissie and Mandi  who make  the wonderful challenges and beautiful inspiration, but also made me feel like I belonged and welcome from the very first challenge I entered(and many of the ladies are from the UK or Europe...so a girl from Virginia was a little different)...they are such amazing ladies!  Not only am I endeared to them, but to all the talented and super sweet artists who join in the weekly challenges!!  It is quite a community of clean and simple stampers...and one of my very favorite places to "hang out"!!
 The Red White and Blue challenge had me stumped until I came home today, and then by the time I pulled it together, the challenge was over...bummer...the time difference messed me up!!!    Here's what I made...
I used a sizzix die (Phrases -Happy) , My Favorite Things star die and part of an Inkadinkado sentiment(All Occasions).  I got the paper at Michael's(shiny red and shiny blue starred papers), layered on chipboard and stamped the sentiment in Real Red.  Rounded the bottom corners.  Thank you, again, Chrissie and Mandi...you made me feel so incredibly special!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  1. I'd really love to know how you cut the chipboard. How Thick is it? I love the look of your letters but just not sure how you cut the chipboard to match the die cut.
