Stamping opportunities THIS week -- Join the fun! JUGS #142

Hi stamping friends!

UPDATED: The pinwheel card below was inspired by a card I saw on jkcards blog. My version matches the weekly theme of the Just Us Girls (JUGS #142) challenge, summertime. It's like I knew what I was doing when I created this card! I used Stampin Up's Polka Dot Parade designer series paper (DSP) and perfect polka dots embossing folder. I cut a  3 1/4" x  3 1/4" piece of DSP then drew a pencil line corner to corner and cut each line toward the center, stopping about 1/2" from the center; folded each corner to the center and secured them with a 3/8" red glimmer brad. I stamped the greeting with Stampin Up's Itty Bitty Banners stamp set in Real Red ink and used the coordinating Bitty Banner framelit die to cut it out on the big shot. A piece of 1/4" stitched grosgrain ribbon on a piece of wooden skewer and there you have it, Ta-Daa!

I hope you can join me this week for some stamping fun. We'll make birthday cards for Tuesday's 3 for $5 and a note card set on Wednesday.
