Summer Fun Somethings

Good morning, I have scheduled this post so I hope that Blogger is playing nice today. As you are are reading this I will be exploring The Bay of Fundy and stuffing myself full of seafood.

Over on the Stamp Something blog we have another great new challenge for you. It is a nice easy one this week as we have chosen the theme of Summer.


Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Simon Says Stamp who have offered up a $20 voucher for one lucky participant. They have some of the most wonderful selection of supplies around and you are sure to be spoiled for choice.

I wanted to play with some of the great stamps that I got in my last order that had not been used. This card features Tilda with butterfly dress. I have masked the image with the mushroom from the same collection. I've even had a go at the paper tole or 3-D effect on both the butterfly and Tilda. I've kept it simple for my first go at it but I do like the effect.

To add a little twist I have made a tilted easel card. The gorgeous papers are from The Memory Box I have been saving them as I do not want to run out.

All of the gorgeous flowers in this little bouquet are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I am so happy that my order arrived and I have some colour selection once again.

To finish the inside I have found this great sentiment which I typed and printed from my computer. I have then affected the little verse with some stamping and punches.

I hope that you will stop by the Stamp Something blog and take a look at the gorgeous work of my teams. Then I hope that you will share with us your own lovely summer creations.
Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to visiting your blogs when I return home from my little vacation.
