MPC Summer Challenge Nautical/Patriotic + a Prize!

Welcome to the Mountain Plains Crafters Summer Challenge!  You have not one, but two choices; go nautical or go patriotic with your creation.  It's that time of season and we want you to choose whichever theme strikes your fancy.   Create a craft project (card, layout, DIY, etc.) and scroll to the bottom of this post for the InLinkz to link up.  We do have a few house rules, so read those at the bottom as well.

Before you read further, please visit May Arts Ribbon on Facebook and tell them "thanks for sponsoring the challenge at MPC!"  You might wish to follow them as well.  There's always something fun going on over there and lots of crafty inspiration as well.

**Please leave comments on all the design team creations.  It's very much appreciated!  They work hard and all they get are dog biscuits!  Well, that and ribbon.    

This challenge will require a url which means you need to link your project up using a blog, a photo hosting site, whatever contains a direct http link to your creation.  If using a Facebook link, your page will need to be on public settings.  We need to be able to see that it was created new.  Backlinking is not allowed.  What does that mean?  That means if you are linking a project you published 2 days ago, a week ago, a year ago...that's backlinking.  We strive to be fair to everyone.

The prize?  A sampling of brand new patriotic/nautical ribbon from some of May Arts Ribbons new releases.  Plus, we just might throw in a few little extra crafty items as well.

Challenge begins 6/25/15 at 1:00 am ET and ends 7/4/15 at 1:00 am ET (Limit of 2 entries).  
Winner will be announced late on July 4th.  Happy Independence Day!
