Curtain Call: Hang in There

Thanks to all of you who made the first ever Curtain Call challenge a huge success.  And if you didn't get a chance to play along, today's another day with our next challenge!!

The sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  The prize is your choice of a stamp set!  It's definitely worth your time to play along!









I have to admit that I had a huge wishlist of Fresh Squeezed Stamps but hadn't ordered anything yet.  So this was my excuse to order (as if I need an excuse!!)  I got all the sets on my wishlist and then one last set jumped into my cart.  It's called String Me Along and contains this very unique, but very fun variety of images - a high-topped tennis shoe, a baby onesie AND...Chinese lanterns which I thought were just perfect for the party image above!

Hang in There

You will LOVE all of the inspiration from the design team.  There are some with watermelons, others used the feathers, some focused on the colors - it's an amazing variety and will most definitely give you ideas and inspiration.  Check it out at Curtain Call.  The challenge is open until August 10th - I hope you play along!
