For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, (a set that will be released NEXT month), visit and comment on each of the design team members' blogs TODAY.

If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning!

My first project is serving two purposes – the Stampin’B’s challenge for this week and also Day 3 of the Blog Hop.




The hostess for this week’s Stampin’B’s challenge was NancyRuth, who wanted us to put a star or stars on our card. My brother-in-law has put in his papers to retire next year, so I made this card for him. It’s pretty self-explanatory – the moon/stars image is stamped with Versafine Majestic Blue and then clear embossed. I colored in the stars with a yellow Copic marker so that they would match the stars in the DP.



Using the same layout for my second card, I stamped the sun onto MFP Lemon Yellow, cut it out, and glued it down onto a circle of MFP Breezy Blue. The DCWV patterned paper had all the same colors and provided a nice background.



This set of salt & pepper shakers actually DOES coordinate with today's set -- see the sun on them!

Don’t forget -- For another chance to win a free stamp set, be sure to visit the blogs of the rest of today’s design team and comment on each.

Here is the Blog Hop LINE UP for today, but LOOK for a NEW LINK LIST TOMORROW!!!
