Challenge #25 Summertime

After a VERY long and frigid Wisconsin winter, we feel more than ever that summer is definitely worth celebrating! :-) If you have some summer birthdays, art journal pages, scrapbook pages or anything else that depicts summertime, this month's challenge is for you. 

But first: The winner of Challenge # 24 is #9, Donna Whitten, with this adorable Fourth of July decoration: 

Congratulations, Donna, you you will receive a free Raisin Boat stamp set of your choice! Please email customerservice@raisinboat.com with the name and item number of your set selection, as well as your mailing address. (To view your stamp set options, go to www.RaisinBoat.com, click on the Products tab, and click on any category or the catalog link.)

Thank you to everyone who joined the challenge. We hope you will continue to share your wonderful creations with us!

Now for the challenge: Create an invitation, card, table decoration, banner, art journal page or scrapbook page about a parade, picnic, flowers, garden, beach/pool, ice cream, the great outdoors, etc., -- anything that depicts “Summertime.” It can be whatever you may need to create and use! Just remember to do some stamping.

Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice! You can enter as often as you like.

Remember you can rent or buy sets from Raisin Boat. No guilt in using a set for just one project, such as a challenge. We look forward to seeing your creations!

Here are the upcoming challenges for 2014 to help you get the perfect sets into your rental Pick List:
July: Summertime
August: Birthday
September: Halloween
October: Thankful
November: Christmas

This challenge will close on the 12th of August.

Here are some creations from the Idea Gallery to get you started:

Linda created this berry cute card using Icing on the Cake and Strokes of Wisdom.

This card, made with Cool Treats along with beachy corner accents from Splash,
will have you chasing down the ice cream truck on a hot day!

We seem to be on a food/beverage pattern here so far, fitting for a summer filled with picnics and parties. The tomatoes from our Garden of Weedin' set helped make this fresh card, along with the glasses from Drinks Anyone?.

This card, featuring Sprinkled Wishes, is sure to get your ideas bloomin' for this summer challenge! After all, any floral creation says "summer"...

Summer is all about R&R at your favorite escape -- such as the cabin! We used a brayer to create the sunset and grassy areas to support the images from Pier Happiness on this cozy, peaceful card.

What would summer be without flip flops and friends? Fill our clear curvy bottle with a candy treat for a fun summer surprise gift. The flip flops, dressed up with stylish flower brads, are from Perfect Partners.
