Hi everyone!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and have enough time to play with us this week.  You will be in love with our DT and GDTs samples, most of them are using this week's sponsor Sassy Cheryl's .   I love the whimsy look and soft line of her stamps. Cheryl sure has an eye for beauty and elegance, but it is that kid's spark that she adds to her images that make me want to squeal and jump of joy.
There are a few things that you should know about Sassy Cheryl's, she has not only a store, but she runs an amazing blog and Challenge blog too. 

The winner of this week's challenge will receive a $5 Gift Certificate to Sassy Cheryl's store. I am sure you all want to know what this week's challenge is... since it is starting to get nice and hot here in the states, we decided to go with "SUMMER HEAVEN" you can interpret it as you would like, maybe summery color, or maybe Summer activities.  

We want to Welcome our June Guest Designers: Emily C -The Wonderful Insanity Called Life, Tracey Brossart -BrossArtAddiction and Chris V- Easily Amused.  We also have a super cool announcement Elizabeth - Warm Harted has accepted our invite to stay as part of our permanent DT... yay!!!
