I've been long, a long way from here...put on a poncho, played for mosquitos, and drank 'til I was thirsty again...

Happy Wednesday, y'all! I have the pleasure of being in the Designer Spotlight this month for the Simon Says Stamp store, and they have some amazing things going on including a huge new STAMPtember™ release of fabulous stamps and dies! You can see them all HERE.

Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. Over the past 10 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember™ event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.

We are kicking off the STAMPtember™ festivities with a Design Team Blog Hop! The hop starts at the Simon Says Stamp Blog, and you also have a chance along the way to win a shopping spree! Check out the details at the end of my post.
For our challenge this week, we are asking you to Put a STAMP On It (you must use a stamp somewhere on your cards/creations NO DIGI'S allowed this week!)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog
 
I am celebrating STAMPtember™ with, of course, a handmade, stamped card!
The focal image was cut with the All Occasion Label Die from Wplus9 and the sentiment is from the Shoot for the Stars clear set. I added some Teal Stripe Washi Tape down the side, and an orange panel embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder. The smiley faces are from the same stamp set, stamped in yellow ink on gray cardstock. Here's a closeup:
The finishing touch is a few self-adhesive rhinestones from my stash. THOSE make me happy!

Now...for the fun stuff...some prizes! Each of my teammates has a special handmade work of art to share with you and also more prizes along the way! Also, if you play along with the Put a STAMP On It! Challenge, you could be the lucky winner of our GRAND PRIZE $100 Simon Shopping Spree!
In order to be eligible for any of the prizes you must complete the hop, leaving comments at all the blogs along the way AND enter the challenge. You can do it! We will announce the winners as soon as possible after the hop finishes at 8am EST on Wednesday, September 12th.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...next on the hop is Sarah, and I know she has something gorgeous for you.  Have a fabulous week!
