Happy 4th of July to those of you in the USA.  This is a long weekend for many of us.  I am having a good time.   Today is is suppose to be in the 90's.  AHHH...I am heading to a little seaside town and will be walking around to all the little shops.  I love doing this but I wish it was cooler.  Even there it will be 90 degrees.  I will still have fun.  I'll just need to spend more time in the air conditioned shops buying things.

Today is the Stempeltraume challenge.  This week's theme is a recipe.  3 Pearls, 3 Flowers and Lace.  I didn't have any pink lace so I picked ribbon that had little lace points at the end.  This theme was made for me!!  I love all of these and it was perfect for me to use one of my new Lily of the Valley stamps.  I just love these stamps.

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Lily of the Valley - Sketch.  I love to layer so this was a great sketch for me!!

The Res-Q - Sunshine - What better than helping flowers grow than sunshine and that is why she is wearing her hat.

Fun with Shapes - Pink, Green, Brown - I love these colors on this card. 

Charisma - Metal - I have the heart charm hanging from the flowers.

Crafty Calendar - Summer - I love taking care of my flowers in the summer.  I live in the NE so 6 months out of the year it is cold and you don't see flowers so I really appreciate them all summer long.  

Lexi's Creations - Layers - I love layering and this sketch called for alot of them.

Crafty Creations - Ice Cream / Cakes - you can either have an image of one of these or use color as your inspiration.  I decided on color.....Strawberry & Pistachio (not that I would eat them together).

S2G - Summertime with Sparkles - The thing I love about summer is my flowers.  I love looking at them, taking care of them and (hopefully) watching them grow so that is my Summertime.  I put stickles on the flowers and on her pearls so that is my Sparkle.

A Pocket full of Posies - One for the Girls -  What is more girley and clothes and flowers.  Every girl I know likes to look pretty and have flowers around them.

Craftalicious - Cute - I fell in love with these stamps because they are so so cute.

KL Stamping - Summer - Flowers and gardening says summer to me.  I like seeing all my flowers grow.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card.  I really appreciate it and I hope you like my work.  Thanks to everyone who leaves a comment.  I love reading them.
