Ajdjss Guild Challenge "Red, White, and Blue"

The Ajdjss Guild was presented with a challenge in honor of the 4th of July, the birthday of the U.S., by "Emily of Exquisite Studios". The Challenge-" Create an item in all red, all white , and/or all blue." You could enter an item in each or all of the categories. But, of course, being human and imperfect, a few of our guild members made an item with all 3 colors. Oh well, what else is new??? LOL
So, because of this imperfection, we now have a 4th category for items of all 3 colors. One thing you can say about the Ajdjss Guild we may be imperfect but we sure are flexible!
We have 31 entries in all--yep, we do. Each is a winner on it's own. Congrats are in order for all of you who participated in this challenge--just pat yourselves on your right shoulder for a job well done. :o)
Okay, let's get serious. Below you will find the entries for each category with the studio name.
Look carefully at each entry in each category and pick the item that you favor the most. You will have 4 favorites that you will post in your comment at the end of this article with each studio name.
Yes, I know, this is a very difficult decision for us-- all and why you ask? Because we are just one hell of a fabulous talented group of artisans--WooHoo!!!

Okay, let the games begin--or rather let the vote begin.
