Good afternoon ! and what a gorgeous afternoon it is too ! Typical now the kiddlies are back to school that the sun should make an appearance !
Anyway, today is the start of a special week over at Simon Says Stamp ! We are celebrating STAMPtember !
and here are all the details !
Enjoy your hop around the DT and good luck !
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 celebrating with a STAMP-TEMBER BLOG HOP !!

Here is my card for the STAMPtember hop !!
The DP's I used are Simple Stories "Awesome"
The stamps I used are from the new My Favorite Thing's stamp and die-namics set called "Circus Spectacular" and I stamped these in Memento Rhubarb Stalk and VersaMagic Pumpkin Spice.
The tickets were die cut with the Tim Holtz ticket strip die and the ticket stamps are in the MFT stamp set.
The stars were die cut from Spellbinders Stars Nestabilities
The button is from my stash and I used this Doodlebug twine
The washi tape I used (which you can just see behind the image) is K&Company Black Dots Smash Tape
I also used the MFT Wonky Scallop Border Die
I hope you like what I have made for the Hop and don't forget to leave a comment and enter the challenge yourself !
