Red White and Blue FCCB Cricut Crawl !! !! !!

Extra Happy Monday !! !!

Extra happy because the FCCB Cricut Crawl is finally here !!

We have 7 new Design Team members joining us today and a fabulous assortment of 
projects in honour of the INDEPENDENCE DAY celebrations on the 4th July !!
As always we have a line up and order for visiting our blogs so if you have come from
you are in the right place !!
However, if you are not one of my Cricut friends or you are visiting by chance and would like to join in  please visit us at FCCB and as I say every time
"Start at the very beginning which
is a very good place to start" 
(Thanks Sound of Music!!)
I decided to use the Fantastic Elegant Edges cartridge for my card and as these fab freebie papers and stamps had just dropped through my letter box the inspiration was born very easily lol 
Its very English is all I can say !!
So funny !!
I stamped Betty with Stazon in black ink and water coloured her with Distress Markers, The frame is my Cricut cut
I used some pre cut out flowers (cheating I know but the right colours and another freebie, sadly the papers were orange on the other side so no good for my favourite rolled flowers :-( )
I had to give Betty a mirror so she can admire her hat  and added some ribbon, white flowers and a cute butterfly along with some card candi 

So that's my little contribution to our crawl please go and visit 
next and leave her some love

It would be great if you joined in with your own red white and blue project, the challenge is open until 1900 Central time Sunday evening at the FCCB blog
Please remember to use and name at least one Cricut cut to be in with a change of a prize and/or top five place

Lastly, just  in case you need it here is the complete DT line up:
