Celebrate the Red, White & Blue

This is one of my favorite Challenges to enter and now the opportunity to be selected on the Design Team has been posted.
Here is the write up from the Clearly i Stamp Blog Challenge by Kathy.

Come join the challenge even if you do not wish to be selected for the design team - it is a fun challenge to upload your creation.

Write up from Kathy from Clearly iStamp:
Since we have changed our store name, got a brand new store and a new host for the challenges (Me!!) we decided to do things a little different with the challenges.
Challenges will be every 2 weeks.
The challenges will run from Friday 10 am (central time) - Thursday 11 pm (central time)
Each challenge will have a prize attached to it and will be stated within the challenge what that prize is.
There will be a Top 3 for each challenge and they will receive a badge to display proudly on their blog. 
The top 3 will be picked by CDS DT and the CiSC DT.
Yes, you read that correctly.....there will be a CiSC DT. If you would like to be considered for the CiSC DT please put CiSCDT behind your name when you enter a craft project (if you forget you can always leave me a comment). 5 people will be picked to be on the CiSC DT. The commitment is for 4 months (July - Nov). If you are picked you will be contacted July 6th and given their images for the July 19th challenge.
You would be required to do a project every 2 weeks and comment on the entries.
Oh and you will need a blog so you can put up your creation and tell people about the challenge!
For being on the CiSC DT you will get images to work with for each challenge!!! 

 Now that all the technical mumbo jumbo is out of the way let's get to the challenge and have fun!
