Operation Write Home 4th of July Virtual Card Making Party 2014

Welcome to the next challenge in the Operation Write Home 4th of July Virtual Card Making Party 2014.  It's Christmas in July, and our theme for this segment of the party is a Red, White & Blue Christmas.  We are aiming for a little earlier deadline for Christmas cards this year at OWH, so now is a good time to "get going" on them.
I wanted to make a card using the little guy above, but could not get it to print, (he came out looking like my printer is almost out of ink & it isn't) so, if anyone would like to give it a try, and use him in a card, I would love to see it and have included the link where to get him.

Here are a few of the cards I've made

Digi-stamp by Dover Publication colored with Copic Markers
other stamps used (holly & sentiment) are by Lawn Fawn and I used a touch of Glossy Accents 

Paper Piecing using (retired) stamps and dies by Stampin' Up, The branch is an Impression Obsession die & the embossing folder is by The Paper Studio

Simple Stamping with wet, & a small touch of dry embossing

Sizzix embossing folder, various punches and dies used

Using up some scraps

One last thing before you go get to work on this challenge, inquiring minds want to know, so please comment below & tell me....
when you make a card for someone, do you make it to reflect the recipient's personality or your own personality?

I'm looking so forward to seeing what you create for our Red, White & Blue Christmas challenge.
