Stampin for the Weekend with Stampavie

I am a happy camper because as I mentioned in my last post, I have another darling new stamp by Sarah Kay from Stampavie that I have been dying to use, called Country Girl. Well, I found another new stamping challenge blog, Stampin for the Weekend, and their challenge for this week was to create a lo or card based on one of the 3 song titles they gave us. I chose to do "Seasons in the Sun" by Terry Jacks, and yes, I'm old enough to remember it well! lol

Anyway, I thought this stamp would be just perfect for that title. It seems summery to me, and I colored it with Copic colors that I hope accented that summery look. I chalked the area behind the stamped image. I really like using chalks. I like the look, and they are very forgiving! The background papers I chose were from Bo Bunny's Calypso Collection, and Fancy Pant's On A Whimsy collection. I hadn't seen this paper by Fancy Pants, and it was particularly appropriate with the sun as a part of the pp. I think I'm going to have to have more of this collection. Of course, I ALWAYS love Fancy Pants. The sentiment is actually a rub on from American Traditional Designs, and again, I thought it was right on the mark for the theme of the challenge. I thought this would make a cute card to send to a friend as a "thinking of you" type card. I hope someone would be pleased to get it!

Btw, don't forget that Samantha chose her design team for SPCC. Looks like a really great group of girls. I think we are in for lots of fun! Stop by and congratulate them!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
