Addicted to Stamps & More - Photo Inspiration



Hello there, blog friends ~
It's Challenge #200 and our 4th birthday at Addicted to Stamps & More! And, we are celebrating in a big way ~ We have 3 Sponsors for this challenge, and the prizes are pretty fabulous...here are the deets:
Happy Little Stampers - $30.00 Gift Card
Paper Smooches - $25.00 Gift Card
QKR Stampede - 3 Digital Stamps

And, what's a party without some refreshing popsicles?



I drew inspiration from all the great colors in the photo. I stamped the Altenew popsicles with Versamark and sprinkled with fine white EP, then colored with my Zig markers. I added some clear WOS for sparkle, then coated the popsicles with glossy accents for shine. The sentiment is from PTI...and that was it! 

We would love to see your take on the inspiration photo...if you have time, feel free to stop by the ATSM Blog, and check it out!

Sadly, this is my last challenge as a DT member at ATSM, and I have to say, it's been a lot of fun! l have really enjoyed being on the team, and I'm definitely going to miss the girls...sniff sniff! With special thanks to our leader, Kylie for believing in me, and for being so supportive! 

Of course, I can't resist adding this card to this week's challenge at CASology for the Cue Card 'Row' ~



Have a great week, and thanks so much for stopping by! And, thank you for those who take the time to leave a sweet comment for me...I read every, single one of them, and appreciate it very, very much!

Your creations will be missed when I read this blog in the future! But I still get to see them on your posts. Love this card, the focus is wonderful. Did you use two dies for the scalloped piece?
