Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend!!

Today I want to share this week's Stamp and Create Product Spotlight. This week at Stamp and Create we will be extending our Product Spotlight on the Wags n Whisker images. Which means you have one more week to get these images at 25% off!!!

I created a card using He Loves Me. I also used Basic Grey Capella, Labels 10 Nestabilities, and a butterfly charm available at Stamp and Create.

The layout of my card follows the Midnight Madness sketch.

This card also uses the Stamp and Create Challenge: bling. If you want to join the Stamp and Create challenge this month, you have until July 4th.

Here is what you must do to join:

~ You must use a stamp that is carried at Stamp and Create. That can be anything from a Wags 'n Whiskers Stamp, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp, Stampavie, Popcorn Bear, Whiff of Joy, The Greeting Farm, etc... Just as long as it is a stamp that is available in the store.

~ Post your card/project on your blog and link back to this challenge post. If you don't have a blog, you can use either Paper Craft Planet or Splitcoast Stampers to upload your card.

~ Link the stamp used on your card to that stamp in the store.

~ Be a follower of the Stamp and create blog

This challenge is open until midnight EST on July 4th.
