*Pollycraft Challenge #2: Stars and Stripes

Good morning everyone-
Well I am running late this morning and for good reason too!!  :)
I had my card all ready to go, uploaded and then decided that I didn't like how the picture came out. 
So I deleted and hubby reminds me of my eye exam that I had later that afternoon. 
So I go...get my eyes exam and DILATED!!!!
I get home, hubby says take a nap...I do not wake up til this morning!!! YEAH...I know....he took care of the babies all night!!! Then I wake up to breakfast too!!
Did I forget something?  Did he do something wrong....???
LOL....It was a real treat and much deserved rest. 
He was just happy to be with us this morning.  He is normally out the door by 8 am and back home around 8 pm.  So he misses breakfast and dinners with the boys. So all with great reason and a huge smile on my face as I write this!!! :) 

So are you ready for round two...
Today at Pollycraft Challenge Blog is Challenge #2 and it's my week to pick a challenge. 
I chose: 
**Stars And Stripes!**
and up for grabs for one lucky winner is a £10 shopping spree at Pollycraft
Isn't she just the cutest?!?!  I was trying to get a better picture to show the glitter that is on her leggings, skirt and jacket, but I was still not able too!!  :( 
That's ok...Still love the card just the same. 
I used some yummy paper by OA: Cakewalk, that I have been hoarding!! :)
Just so hard to find these, so I use them very sparingly. :) 

Well I hope you will join us and show us your "Stars and Stripes" creations.
