Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! I know I had a very busy but incredibly fun weekend with family and friends!! We were blessed with sunshine and only had rain in the evening so most of the day we could be outside (although it was VERY warm). We were so blessed. I have no complaints!

Today is Monday and it is time for another Product Spotlight at Stamp and Create. This week's Product spotlight is the incredibly fun and adorable Popcorn Bear stamps!! And of course.....since they are the product spotlight, they are also 25% off.

Since it is also the first Monday of the month, there is a new challenge.

It's time for another Challenge!! On the first Monday of each month, Stamp and Create will host a new challenge for a chance to win...

...a $20 gift certificate to Stamp and Create!

This month's challenge is brought to us by Joy and her challenge is...Charms!!

Here is my take on the challenge using the spotlighted Popcorn Bear stamps:

I created a gatefold card using Thanks a Bunch Popcorn Bear. I also used May Arts Burgundy and Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, a heart charm, Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Dp, Kaiser craft snow white pearls and large scalloped and classic circle spellbinders. The bow was created with the bow easy.

Your Next Stamp-Use a border punch
Pixie Dust~ Punch it out
Delightful Sketches- texture
Daring Card Makers- pearl
Creative Inspirations- stitching-faux or real
Quixotic Challenge- Go Wild
Our Creative Corner-Summer inspired

Stampin Sisters in Christ-Animals
The Pink Elephant #69 - bright colors
Papertake Weekly - summer fun
Meljen's Designs #10 - dry embossing
Paper Sundaes #21 - summer fun
Cupcake Craft #93: Summer Delights-Summer Colors
Charima Cardz #22: Flowers

I hope you have enjoyed my creation and will join the Stamp and Create challenge. All you have to do is
