CHF Summer Fling - Week 3

Hi!  Thanks for joining the CHF Summer Fling hop.  If you are on the trail, you should have arrived from Jennifer's blog.  If not, jump back to the beginning at the CHF Creative blog for the start.

What's the 12 Weeks of Summer Fling? Each week will feature one of the rubber stamp lines at CHF with a blog hop and special gallery showing new samples using stamps from that line. The featured line will also be on sale for the week so definitely the time to add to your collection:) Two Gift Certificates will be awarded to 2 lucky winners who successfully follow the blog hop and comment as they go in the time allotted. This is not a race. All Blog Hops will start from the CHF Be Creative Blog on a Monday, comments must be made before midnight EST on the Thursday of that week & winners will be announced on the Friday. 1st prize is a $20 CHF Gift Certificate, 2nd Prize is a $10 Gift Certificate which will be emailed to the winning participants. The Gift Certificates will be valid for 6 mths from date of issue. PLEASE NOTE that if you have a Club CHF award awaiting you on your next order, you will need to wait for the following order to use your Gift Certificate as the store only allows one discount per order.

If you upload a qualifying card (using the featured week's stamp line) to the CHF special gallery for the week you will be eligible for the Design Team's Favorite prize which will be a rubber stamp/stamp set of your choice up to the value of $16.99.  We're looking forward to having you play along with us for the summer.

This week's featured line is All Things Considered (ATC) - and will be 25% off this week.  It's the perfect opportunity to purchase a set or two you need.
So... with all the business out of the way, are you ready for my project?

This was a quick card with a collage of images and papers - both the School Primer ATC set and Recess October Afternoon paper were the key players.  I had fun mixing and matching the two, since they are perfect together.  I swiped Old Paper ink over my stamped images to give them the same tone as the patterned paper.

Next on the hop is Tracy.
