♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

Papercraft Star Challenge #2 is already here !

Your challenge is an Americana and/or red,white,blue card. The challenge is open right now, but submissions close Saturday, 7/3, and voting closes Monday, 7/5. Even if you can't participate, head on over and vote for your favorite !! Cannot think of a better way to support your fellow artists.

I always love doing Americana cards. I was raised in Canada, and didn't know very much about the States until I moved here when I was 14. Wow, what a wakeup call ! I had to learn a lot very quickly.

On the other hand, I was the only one who knew anything about the great white North, which only made me look like a smarty pants.

Anyway, I can slap a star on about anything and call it American !
