This was done for Isabella's Challenge #9, "Patriotic Colors" and Stamp Simply #141 Flying High and Proud Color Challenge. I felt very strongly about making it a tribute to our fallen soldiers. Technically, this was another difficult one for me. Pencils are very difficut to blend in large areas. Maybe, I should have tried water colors. Hopefully, Santa will bring me some really good markers! Thanks to Isabella's Challenge I won the images for this one.

I changed the saying a little bit and went with polka dot ribbon instead of gingham. I would have loved the gingham, but couldn't find it in the right width.

This is a runner that I painted for my daughter's wedding. It was about 45' long. I had seen a similar one on the internet and just had to have it. It cost way too much, though. It was several hundred dollars and I didn't have that much room in my budget. I ordered custom stencils off the internet and bought a bolt of fabric from JoAnn's. For slightly more than one hundred dollars I had a beautiful custom runner. (A hundred dollars and many, many nights of painting) It was well worth it!
This is the first post I'm trying. It's going to take me a while to figure this thing out. This image is from Sassy Cheryl's and the frame is from Taylored Expressions. I really like the idea of being able to have artwork in my office in a very easy to change format. I painted her with Stampin' Up watercolor crayons. I was hoping that the shading would have turned out a bit more obvious. I added buttons from my grandmother's button collection. I just love old buttons. I try to use them whenever possible.
