Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all have had a good start to your week and a very restful weekend.

This week we leave for vacation and while I am so looking forward to going camping tomorrow, I have so much yet to do.

Oh well...Today is another Stamp and Create Product Spotlight!! This week Lacey has decided to extend the sale on the Popcorn Bear Images. I just love these adorable stamps. Please do note though that these images are rather large. This card is 6X6 and the image takes up a good portion of the card.

I used the Popcorn Bear image- Someone Special. I also used May Arts ivory silk ribbon, the bow easy, White lace, Scalloped Frame Nestabilities, Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Dp, and a flower charm available at Stamp and Create.

The Layout of my card uses the Midnight Madness sketch challenge for this past week. I flipped the sketch on its side.I also incorporated the challenges:
Daring Cardmakers: pearls
Spoonful of Sugar: Floral Delight
Tuesday Taggers: All that blooms
Totally papercrafts...animal magic
My time to craft...xtra special -this card is for my daughter
Crafty creations...child's play
Simon says Stamp- a recipe-2dp, 1 image, 3 types of embellishments-bling, ribbon, and charm
Charisma Cards- spots and stripes (striped pattern on one side of the dp and spots on the other)
Stamp Something- happy something- Happy Birthday card

Last week was the beginning of Stamp and Create's month long challenge hosted by Joy.
Joy's challenge was to use any image available at stamp and Create and a charm.
I hope you have enjoyed my creation and will join the Stamp and Create challenge. All you have to do is:

1. please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here. You have an entire month to add a charm to a project.
2. make sure you use one of the images available at the Stamp And Create store. There are many to choose from including: Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps, High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Whiff of Joy, The Greeting Farm, Penny Black clear stamps, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Stampavie, My Heart Stamps for You, and Popcorn Bear stamps
3. Leave a direct link to the challenge in your post

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: Joy, Lacey, Jeanette and Sharon.

Have a great day!! Thanks for all your sweet comments!!
