TGIF stampin' paper-hoarders and welcome to the holiday weekend! And, since it's finally another Friday, it's time for another "Stamp Simply" challenge!
This week, Sharon has challenged us to focus on incorporating stars into our projects ... patriotic stars, "A+ Great Job" stars, "twinkle, twinkle, little stars" ... any kind of stars you like. Use punched or die-cut stars, stickers, star paper ... well, you get the idea. Just show us some fabulous stars this week!
Here's my super-simple, stamped and starred card:
To play along ... and we hope you do! ... simply create a project using stars, upload it to your blog or online photo gallery, then visit Sharon's blog, located HERE, to link up your project in Mr. Linky, located HERE.
When uploading to an online gallery, such as Splitcoast Stampers, SNR, or Paper Craft Planet, please use keyword: "ssnotime146" so that we can find your starry project.

Soooooooooo yesterday, Sheila and I were out and about and decided to stop at a vegetable stand to pick up some fresh sweet corn. The place was deserted ... except for a very large, very sleepy German Shepherd.
We both stepped over the dog, picked out our corn, then opened the cash box to pay.
"Look." Sheila said, pointing at the cash box.
Taped to the inside of the lid was a note: "The dog can count."
Thanks so much for spending part of your very busy day with me ... have a fabulous holiday weekend!
