Stamp Simply #101 - Let's Polka!


The Stamp Simply #100 party is over, but we're still dancing! In fact, we're doing the Polka today! (And me being a good German girl, who grew up with Polkafests every weekend in Northwest Ohio... I know how to polka!) But for your Stamp Simply challenge today, we're playing with polka dots! That's it... easy-peasy! Just create something with polka dots!

For this coming school year, I am the one-woman committee to provide occasional treats for the teachers and support staff at Kelsey's school. Nothing fancy, just maybe once a month I was asked to provide some kind of little good cheer, pick-me-up surprises. So, for the first day of school on Monday I got sour apple candy canes, pulled out my Just Rite Stamps small letter set, and a set of Hero Arts apple stamps, and created some apples for the teachers! For the challenge, I used polka dot ribbon, and even some of my apples have polka dots!
Here are ALL 42 of the treats! Actually, it looks like a lot but these came together very quickly, including all the circles and scallops cut with Nestabilities!
Stop at Sharon Johnson's blog for complete challenge details, and to see her fabulous sample! Then be sure to stop and see what the other Stamp Simply girls have to inspire you on their blogs!
