June Challenge - SUMMER

Happy Monday Everyone!! Can you believe it the first Monday in June?!!! Yikes! How time flies!! Since it is the first Monday in June, it is also time for another challenge!! Woo hoo!! This month's challenge is easy peasy. Since most schools are letting out and it is the beginning of summer vacation for most, we are challenging you to a summer creation.

**Lacey is just getting back into town from her brother's wedding and will be back later with the winner of the last challenge**

The prize is a $25 Gift Certificate to Stamp and Create.
**You are welcome to use any stamp for our challenges, but please make sure to adhere to the challenge theme and mention our challenge in your post**

There is no product spotlight this week but THERE IS A SALE!!!! That's right, you can get 10% off you entire order by using the discount code "summer" (all lowercase)!!

Now on to the team's inspiring takes for the challenge:


Lacey used the darling Wags n Whiskers image Chillin Out. Isn't it perfect for summer!!


Chris used the darling image A Blossom for You from Belles N Whistles to great card with a treat box attached. The sentiment is computer generated. The gift bag is filled with chocolate covered sunflower seeds.
In addition to using the stamp from the store, Chris also used orchid fairytale roses, the bow easy and Kaisercraft "Pearl" Pearls

Joy decided to use Surfer Anya from TGF. She colored her with her copics, added some stickles and bling, used some dyed seam binding ribbon - red, new DP called Beach Babe from Fancy Pants and she used her ticket die and treasured moments sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

This perfect summer card features High Hopes Surfer Dude Dudley. It also features some fantastic summer/beach paper by Fancy Pants called Beach Bum. Stamp and Create also carries the girl version of the paper called Beach Babe. The card is accented with May Arts White Silk Ribbon and American Crafts White Pearl Brads.

Jeanette has used the lovely Sarah Kay stamp: Juliet in the garden of nasturtiums to create this criss-cross pocket card. She added a small heart charm underneath the satin bow.

Now it's your turn!

Happy Stamping!! Have a great day!!!
