"That Summertime Feeling"

Howdy folks! And welcome to the new challenge at Cowgirl's Sunday Stampen Challenge!!
Now I know the weather isn't necessarily helping the mood lately, so what's giving you that "Summertime Feeling" ? I'm relying on my garden, it's full of butterflies at the moment. I planted some dwarf sunflowers, which have full size heads but only grow to about 3 and a half feet(so they don't get battered by the wind). Makes me feel like a little fairy when I walk passed them :D, so I've chosen to use "Bella" from Cowgirls-Up Designs on my card!
Our challenge is being sponsored this week by The Character Cafe

The Character Cafe specializes in digital stamps offering a variety of designs with card making in mind, but images could be used for much more given the versatility of digital stamps. The Cafe is an angel company geared towards crafters of all kinds, allowing use for small business as well as personal. The owners, Kendra and Kelly hope to provide a wide variety of unique characters suitable for many uses. Being crafters/consumers themselves, they strive to have customer service and quality second to none and look forward to serving you for years to come. From The Café, happy crafting!
The winner of this weeks challenge will recieve a $10:00 gift certificate for the Character Cafe's Shop, plus an image of their choice from CJ at Cowgirls-Up Designs, woohoo!! And don't forget, at the Cowgirls Sunday Stampen Challenge, 3 runners up also recieve an image of their choice from CJ at Cowgirls-Up Designs, and a badge to put on their blog!!!
So why not hop over there and checkout what you would choose if you're a lucky winner :D
Have fun :D XXX
