Clearly iStamp Challenge - Red, White, and Blue

After a brief break, it's time to begin our challenges again with Clearly iStamp Blog Challenge #1 (CiSC1) - Color Challenge - Red, White and Blue. Your project can be any theme as long as the colors are ONLY the shades of Red, White and Blue (neutrals are okay to add). Any type of crafty project is allowed as long as it meets the theme.

Time: June 21st @ 10 am - July 4th @ 11 pm (Central Time)
Prize: $10 gift code to Clearly Digi Stamps for digital stamps. If you use a CDS stamp you will be entered into the drawing twice.

The winner will be announced on July 10th @ 10 am (central time).

This will also be a special challenge because we are going to give you an opportunity to be on the Cleary iStamp Blog Challenge Design Team. All you have to do is put CiSCDT behind your name. There will be 5 openings and the commitment is for 4 months (July 19th challenge will be the start date). You will be contacted July 6th and given your images for the July 19th challenge. We hope you'll join in the fun!
