Summer Sunshine Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I know this is kind of a long post but please stick with me to the end. I'm so excited!!! The first challenge is underway over at "Nutshells Blog", and we would love for you to make a card with a summer theme, if you have a Nutshell stamp you can use it but if not any stamp will do, and don't forget the brand new SUMMER NUTSHELLS are now available in our web shop in clear acrylic and unmounted red rubber at "Nutcrafters". There is still time to enter our challenge to create a summery card and we hope you can join us. Just scroll down to Fridays post on the blog and leave a link to your creation in the comments box.

And what challenge is complete without a prize! The winner will receive 2 of our original Nutshells: Mac and Tash.



For my card I used the adorable Summer Mac. I used a wonderful sketch from Our Creative Corner from June 6. I colored Mac with my copics and used glossy accents on her sunglasses, drink and bracelet to create a little shine and texture. I popped her up on pop dots. I used paper and buttons I got out of my scrap box and Bo Bunny ribbon to finish it off. I think she is adorable!!

To enter, just leave a comment and link to your card below the post on the "Nutshells Blog". The challenge will close on Thursday evening at 8pm (GMT) a winner will be picked via Random Generator. So hurry, get those summer cards in and win these fabby stamps!!! We can't wait to see your creations!!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you tomorrow with something else cute to share so be sure to come back!!
