A Kiss For the Sun!

Hey Peeps!

Hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July celebration – we had a great time, in spite of the ridiculous rain storm.  I’m beginning to think that we’re never going to get summer here in Washington.  So annoying!
 Sun Kissed

Enough complaining from me – let’s get right down to business.  This week, the ABC Toys & Crafts DT are all sharing samples featuring Hero Arts stamps.  My card showcases a new clear set called Kiss for the Sun.  The images in this set are really sweet, and super fun to paper piece like I did here.  I stamped the clothing images onto some new Echo Park DP called A Walk in the Park.  The picket fence was created using the Picket Fence Border Punch by Martha Stewart.  The layout was inspired by a sketch in the Paper Crafts Magazine “Go To Sketches” issue (pg. 46).  This card qualifies for the CAS-Tastic Wednesday Challenge this week, which is to create something using Kraft; and the Wee Memories Challenge #13, which is a "free for all" challenge.  Fun, huh?!

I also wanted to let you know that Julie, the owner of ABC Toys & Crafts, has recently started a Clearance section in the store, where many items are marked down as much as 40% off.  You can find some really great bargains HERE.  Check that section often, as she’ll be adding new things on a regular basis to make room for new products.

That’s it for me today, friends.  Thanks so much for stopping by – your kind words mean so much to me.  Know that I really appreciate you.  I hope to have more crafty goodness to share with you very soon!
