For a Great Friend!

Hi there! It's time for the Stamp Something Challenge! This week our theme is Summer Fun and our fabulous sponsor is Simon Says Stamp! I'm getting ready for a much needed vacation today...and before I know it, I'll be sitting on a beach so this is the perfect theme for me!

Here's Balloon Emma sitting on her Swing! Both images are by CC Designs...and I know what you are thinking...where's the balloon? Well, I've decided that she is holding a kite balloon (since we all know you can't sit on a swing and fly a kite!!!) She's colored with Copics and her shirt is paper-pieced at the bottom. The kite is made with some coordinating American Crafts dps and cut with the Kite Die-namics by MFT! I used my new cloud stamp by Great Impressions for the clouds in the sky behind her...she's so cute!

There's even more die cuts here too...another MFT Die-namic was used for the grass border and I used my Spellbinders dies and Fiskars circle punch for the sweet Whimsy sentiment from the Friendship Ticket Sentiments set! What's left...some zigzag stitching on my fun, glittery kite paper, a seam binding ribbon and bow topped with a bumble bee brad!

I hope you'll stop by the Stamp Something Challenge blog to see the rest of the Design Team samples. Play along with us for your chance to win a great prize!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by today!
