Summer equals Birthdays!

Ready for another challenge with the Stampendous team?  Throughout the month of June we are challenging ourselves (and you) to make a card, project, gift, altered item, or a bit of home decor that is related to SUMMER!  That's right, we're celebrating the start of summer all month long!

Stampendous has the cutest KIDDOS! That's what they are named and it fits them so well! I've used Hula Kiddo on my daughter's birthday card today which it happens to be today. Out of the four in our immediate family only one of us does not have a birthday in June. It's three weeks of birthday cake for this family... yum! LOL

Back to our hop! I colored this dancing Hula Kiddo with Prismacolor pencils and then added some fun pops of color and texture with Fun Flock from the Over the Rainbow kit in purple, green and blue. I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Assortment set and then I added some fun Chiffon Color Fragments across the bottom of the image by sprinkling them over some Mono Liquid Glue (you can see it better in the top banner photo on this post.)

That's it from me, but be sure to check out what my teammates have created for the challenge today!

Don't forget, we want YOU to play along with us!  Simply make a summer themed project of some sort and add the direct link for your project to our collection at the end of this post (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than Thursday, June 28 at 11:59 PM EST .  You do not have to use Stampendous products, but we sure love it when you do!  As an extra incentive for playing along, one lucky crafter (drawn at random) will receive this fabulous new Friendly Phrases Perfectly Clear stamp set:

As an even bigger incentive, if you use Stampendous products on your project, that entry will count twice, which increases your chances of winning!  Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you have a chance to play along with us (you can enter as many times as you'd like!) this month...Happy Crafting!
