Happy Tuesday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great beginning to the week!!

If you have not participated yet, you may want to since there are prizes along the way, one of which is a $50 gift certificate at the SSCC blog.  All you have to do is leave comments on each blog along the way and tell us your fave. verse on the SSCC blog.

Today I have a Stamp and Create Product Spotlight to share with you.  Normally I post these on Monday's but due to a debilitating migraine headache I was unable to post it yesterday or visit any of your blogs.  I am so sorry!!  While my migraine is still not gone, I hope I will have some blogging time later....and this migraine will disappear.

This post may be a little shorter than normal and for that I am sorry too.  If there is something I miss and you want to know, please feel free to email me.

The product spotlight at Stamp and Create this week is High Hopes Distin Pike images. Stamp & Create will be offering the Dustin Pike stamps at 25% off.  What a great time to add the couple that have been on your wish-list! Please check the challenge blog to see the other wonderful creations made by the other DT members. They are sure to bring a smile to your face!

For my creation I used the High Hopes Image Mer-cat (illustrated by Dustin Pike) to create a card with a gift pocket. She also used Cosmo Cricket Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper. The inside sentiment is from the Penny Black Bubbly clear stamp set.  
The front of my card uses the sketch and challenge from Pixie Cottage challenges this week.
