Doodle Pantry Sponsors 'Paper Playtime': Theme Red,White and Blue

Doodle Pantry is sponsoring  the challenge at Paper Playtime this week and the theme is 'red, white and blue'.   I know with July 4th  just around corner  they will probably be expecting something  a little more patriotic than a Christmas kitty-lol.  However, this is my take on red, white and blue. The blue is a very gentle colour  called 'soft sky' by Stampin' UP. Looks somewhat green (to my eyes) until you put something green up against it (which I did) then it becomes blue:o).

If you have time go take a look at (Paper Playtime) and perhaps play along, you could win a Doodle Pantry prize. WooHoo!!!!!
