Amusing Challenges – summer theme

Thanks for stopping by my Amusing Challenge this week!  It’s all about summer – so go ahead and play along with anything you think fits this category.  Throughout the month I’ll have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing for one lucky Grand Prize winner. This month’s prize is a Christmas in July theme with this retired stamp set  from A Muse Studio.

I love that inspiration can come from any where and at any time!  Juliet wrote me:  

I woke up before 5 this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep so I got up and grabbed the newspaper in my pjs before it got light.  It had rained, so everything was sparkly in the moonlight, and that is what inspired this card.

She used the retired set, Wild Rose, from A Muse Studio and I think this card is gorgeous!  It’s embossed and sparkly in real life…

Cyndi always does some cute cards and she hasn’t used the set, Days Like These in a while.  Look at how she repeatedly stamped that ice cream cone and added a touch of glitter.  So fun!

I just got a new set Springtime Days for my Camp Wanna Stamp event.  I needed the rose image but I’ve been eyeing this bee hive that I thought was perfect for copic coloring.   I really enjoyed just sitting down and coloring…and this Hexagon Background, also from A Muse Studio, is the perfect accompaniment.
