"Summer Days"

Summer Days
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges
for the month of August.

We are a stamping challenge so combining that with some flowers
will qualify you for this challenge.



This gorgeous stamp of the boys heading off for a fishing trip with their dog can be found here.

I thought that I would move away from the beach a little for this summer make...and head for the river!
(you can't see it, they are still on their way there)

This to me is summer all over!
Relaxation, the hot sun beating down and boys heading out to catch fish, with their dog.
Yep, you just gotta love that caveman urge of their's to catch a fish for us!


I hope you take the time to pop over to 
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occasional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!
