Summer Theme Challenge & Great Deals

I don't know how it is where you are but the Summer here in Texas is purrrrty Hot Y'all !!!  We are also going through a draught which isn't much fun either.  So to keep Summer fun with a new sizzlin' challenge Crafting By Designs has come up with a Super hot challenge to create a card with a Summer theme.   Well if you know anything about me if I can make it pink I'll do it.  I think if I had to do something for Halloween, some how or another I would find a way to make it pink.  So here's my design, it probably wouldn't last long in the heat but it will last on this paper....yummy I hope you enjoy :-)

Used Once Upon a Princess Cart & jumbo scallop punch by EK
I guess the only fall back with challenges for me is trying to rush to get it done and then I look at the finished project after I have posted it and I see so many different things I could have done to make it cuter.  I wished I had stitched around the card....added a few criss-cross lines on the cone...made a faux stitching around the scallops... Maybe next time.


I think I could definitely call my self a stamp collector and I don't mean postage.   I really like getting sentiment stamps and Michael's just put out the greatest stamps for a $1.  It is such an excellent deal and the stamps are wonderful.   I hope your local Michael's carries them.  Check it out!

Well I guess that's it for now...Stay Blessed and I'll post again soon!!
