So, I have fabulous news about this weeks challenge.......It's a sponsored challenged by a fabulous company!!!!! WHIMSEY STAMPS!! Not only do they have fabulous images, but they have been super generous with their challenge prize. They are offering a $15.00 GC to their store to the winner of this weeks challenge, which will be picked next Tuesday.


I don't know about you, but here in New Hampshire it is HOT!!! Really HOT!!! Typically in New England, we don't usually see a whole lot of 90 degrees day, but this week we are having days that may reach up to 100 degrees....YIKES....So, I find it very appropriate that this weeks challenge is a SUMMER theme.....Please make sure you use Basic Grey paper.


We had another fabulous turnout with last weeks Americana challenge. Every ones cards were wonderful, but we had to pick out TOP 3. So, without further a do, this weeks top 3 are:
