Stamp Simply #99 - You've Got a Friend in Me!


WARNING: Put on your shades, or risk burning your retinas! This one is bright!

It's time to Stamp Simply again, and this week Sharon has issued a challenge that's so easy, I expect EVERYONE to play! All you have to do is make a card for a friend, for any occasion! Just make sure the word "friend" is somewhere on your card! See, I told you... easy-peasy!

And hey, did you notice? We're up to challenge #99! That means next week is #100 and that is reason to celebrate! We're gonna' have a little party and the Stamp Simply team is going to have some extra fun things to share with you next week, so be sure to check us out!

Sharon has an as-always stunning sample for you to see on her blog! We bid farewell to our July guest designer Rose Ann Reynolds, and welcome our August guest designer, Pat Adam! Pat is Julie's mom, and a regular participant in the Stamp Simply challenges each week! I had the pleasure of meeting Julie and Pat last month at our Stamp Simply getaway weekend, and let me tell you... the woman is a HOOT! Pat can keep you in stitches, and has such a wonderful spirit! You're going to love seeing what she creates with us this month!

See what the other Stamp Simply Girls have for you today, too...


Now, for my card! (Here's the part where you need to put on your shades!) While visiting with Joan Fricker last month, I found this totally cute stamp in her stamp drawer, and took the opportunity to stamp it off about 2 dozen times for future use because it was so stinkin' cute!

This bathing beauty is colored with Copics, and I even tried to give her a little sunburn! My super-sweet friend Sankari Wegman did a fabulous job giving her Rearview Ruth stamp from I Brake for Stamps a sunburn the other day, so I tried to do that too, but didn't succeed nearly as well as Shawnie did! (Check out her card here!) My Bella Blvd. paper comes from the Hope Stamps Eternal store, as well as the Zva crystals on my sentiment circle!

So, thanks for stopping by today and all week long! I know it's been crazy-busy here on my blog, and I appreciate all the wonderful comments you've left for me! Don't forget, the blog candy is still being offered from Our Craft Lounge, so if you haven't commented yet on this post for a chance to win, you'd better get busy!
