***Leave some love on these blogs for your chance to win:) 

2. Ok---- let's chat about winners and featured players:) First, let me just say that I'm loooooving all of your creations! You came up with so many fun ideas and designs for SUMMER--- here's a few ideas and cards that knocked my socks off: a trifold beach card, a camel on cork sand,  a CAS card full of beach creatures, here and here for inking, a Christmas card using beach colors, a chick drinking lemonade, and a deer/bear on the beach! ***NOTE/QUESTION: Have I mentioned how hard it is for me to pick a winner!?!?! 

These also caught my eye and brought on SUMMER x10000000000:
  • Jill -popsicles *nuff said! 
  • Laurie C.- oh my! LOVE! It's a snowman on the beach!  
  • Nicole -wowza! Her inking is stunning! 
  • Lois -another WOWZA with inking! 
  • Julie S. - what a fun summer tag!  
  • Rebecca -what a fun use of the notebook die (as a shaker)! 
  • And because I love everything Lynn and Lori make- love it all! 
Our featured players for the July SUMMER challenge are: 
Lorelle Chin (I absolutely love her coloring!)
Ria M. (Ants + picnic = summer!)
Donna W. (she used our free digital stamps to make a summer card- CLEVER!)
DebSelby (um... that chem prof as a beach bum... CLEVER! And look at the weather chart behind him! LOL! OH MY! LOVE it!)

And a HUGE congrats to our winner, Kathy S.!!!!!!!!!!

THANKS to all who joined in the fun! Our next challenge starts tomorrow [August 1st]... it has to do with FRIENDSHIP! So pretty much anything goes--- birthday, thanks, anniversary, love, etc! As long as it has "friendship" or "friend" or "friends" on there- it works! LOVE IT (and I love that photo of the squirrel and bird)! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:) 
Tons of love, Sav
