Yup.  All caps was TOTALLY necessary there.  For reals.  After all, what is a BEAR HUG, if it isn't HUGE?!!!!!  Right?  Right.  K.  That was a pretty fabulous way to start the day.  Just sayin'.

It's time for an ANYTHING GOES challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog!  Woot!  Woot!  I know those are ALWAYS your favorites!  This week the Design Team is using products from Authentique and/or Bottle Cap Inc.!  Fun stuff! I decided to use the Authentique Fresh 6x6 papers for my card.  I LOVE this collection!  Absolutely gorgeous beachy, summery, nautical-ish goodness.  Yup.  Totally just wrote that sentence.  HA!

Bear Hugs

Oh, and did I mention that I mixed that awesome paper with a big strong dose of ADORABLE?!!!!  For reals.  I love this stamp set.  LOVE IT!  It's the Circle Friends set from Simon Says Stamp and it's quickly becoming a favorite of mine just because it is SO. FREAKIN'. ADORBS.  For reals.  Not just a little bit adorbs.  Lotsa adorbs.  I mean, for reals... it even makes me use words like ADORBS for goodness sake!

Bear Hugs (detail)

I used IMAGINE CRAFTS®/of Tsukineko®  Momento Markers in various colors.  I love these markers for stamping!  They are seriously the BEST stamping markers I've ever used.  LOVE!

AND...as per usual, one lucky participant is going to receive a $50 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store because they rock like that.  Yup.  For reals.  Just sayin'.

Sooo.... if you would LIKE to have $50 in free money to spend at Simon Says Stamp, well, make a NEW card, post it somewhere including a link back to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog post, and link it up to the Challenge blog for your chance to win!  You creation MUST be new and you can enter up to five projects.  Woot!
