Summer Time....

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

For some people this time of year means pools, beach time, and warm weather. Some love to travel and enjoy vacations. Other people just soak in the sunshine. How does summer translate into your creative life? What do you make to celebrate it? Are you inspired by the colors? The themes? This theme is wide open – we can’t wait to see what you come up with for this summer challenge!

We have been having a summer full of lovely rainstorms here in my neck of the woods...

So, I was inspired to craft up a little mixed media birdie, complete with his own umbrella for all of those summer rainstorms!
Lots of paint, colored pencils, and mixed media fun...
Oh, and plenty of doodles...

And there we have it!

Here's to all those summer rainstorms!

And now it's your turn to get crafty!
Be sure to link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp.com.

  8. Love this story! A town atop an umbrella and birdies seeking shelter below. What a wonderful imagination you have. Fostering imagination in young children is, IMHO, one of the greatest gifts you can impart to a child and I bet you are doing just that with your wee ones. Bravo!
