SSW2-61 Sami Stamps

It's Joanna, from Colorado and I am your hostess this week. I don't know about you guys but we are deep in the Dog Days of Summer.  The days where it is hot and mothers around the world are thinking, "I love my children but school needs to start .... soon!"  Kidding (sorta).  This is my puppy Holiday.  As a Samoyed, she is definitely NOT a fan of summer, give her cold Winter months any day!

Before we get started with our this week's challenge, I am thrilled to be the one to announce last week's winner ...

A great big HOORAY goes out to you three!!   You guys should also grab your badge from our sidebar for your blog.  We are so lucky to have such great artists stop by and participate each week. 

This week,we have Samantha Siemers Ratliff, Sami, returning as our sponsor.   You might know Sami as the younger sister of Tammy at A Day For Daisies where she grew up fascinated with art and watching her sister paint all day in her art studio. Sami got her start through her sister’s store and now has an ever expanding selection of her own digi images at Sami Stamps. Sami’s inspiration comes from those things around her that make her happy in hope that it might brighten your day.
