Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I somehow managed to get a summer cold and have felt miserable but I till had a good weekend. We did get some of our much needed rain!! Woo hoo!!

Today I have a Product Spotlight to share with you over at Stamp and Create. Lacey is offering a sale on all summer stamps for 10-25% off! Here is your chance to get some of the stamps on your wish list at a discounted price.

Don't Forget Stamp and Create does have a monthly challenge!! On the first Friday of each month, we have a challenge for a chance to win....
...a $20 gift certificate to Stamp and Create!!

There are new rules to the challenge...You may use ANY stamp now!! Just please make sure to mention that you are participating with the Stamp and Create Challenge.
Kim (who won the first Stamp and Create challenge) is our guest and she chose this month's challenge...Stitching/Sewing: can be hand, faux or machine stitching!!

I used the adorable summer image from Stampavie called Josephine in the Watermelon Patch. She also used ivory crocheted lace, Basic Grey Indian Summer and Green at Heart dp. I just love these Stampavie images and just never can get enough of them. Unfortunately, time has been a factor in getting them inked up. I had so much fun water coloring this image!! The sentiment is from Ticket sentiments over at Whimsy (another fave set of mine for sentiments...Love the tickets!! I also incorporated this month's challenge of stitching.

For my layout I used the Friday Sketchers Sketch layout.
*Hannah friends- Unused (new stamp to me)
* Delightful Sketches- Bright summer colors
*Little Red Wagon- Nestabilities
*By the cute and girly-warm summer days
*Fresh Brewed Challenges- summertime
*Drunken Stampers- water- water on your image or use water color
*Creative Card Crew- to Die for
*Pollycraft Monday- Bold and Bright
*Friday Sketchers Sketch
*Crafty Calendar- Summer
*Speedy the cat- Punch it
