{ Impression Obsession DT Challenge #4 and Blog Candy }

Our challenge was to use summer stamps. Today is first day of summer (June 20) and July 4th is just around the corner. I wanted to play with my new Stars and Calendar set. I made a little gift set with a card, gift bag and a pinwheel. I cut the stars out and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. For the pinwheel I stamped the background with stars and adhered it to another piece of patterned paper for contrast. The "celebrate" word came from Express Yourself set.
Check our what the other DT members crated: Tina, Laura, Julie, Deborah, and Kelli!

To win these stamps all you have to do is post a comment here and I will randomly draw a winner on Friday, June 27, at 8 pm CST. If you haven't checked out Impression Obsession stamps you really need to take a peek. Check out Summer rubber stamp supplement, Summer clear stamp supplement. I love these stars because they are versatile and can be used on variety of projects, not just July 4th celebration, and everyone needs to have a set of calendar stamps! One last thing...I have to share this photo with you. Alex got his Jumparoo today and he loves it. He figured out really quick how to jump in it. He was very entertaining. After all the photos and recordings were completed, his eyes got droopy and he fell asleep.
My friend is visiting from California...so, if you don't hear from me I will try to catch up. Have a great weekend.

One more thing. My little card that I made for Hero Arts challenge won third place, you can see it here !!!! How exciting.

    Your cards just never cease to amaze me, my Friend. I have run out of words to express how my mouth just opens and my eyes just take in all the beauty when I come to visit. Boy, you are so good!

    AWWWWW, that photo of your sleeping Alex is the most precious one of all. It makes you wonder what he is dreaming about; sometimes I think I see many angel wings surrounding him with love and protection. I love that you share your little boy with me, Daniela. He is beautiful!
