Time is flying by, wow! It is already time for our ROP challenge number 6. The Challenge will start Monday February 16th and run thru Sunday March 1st.
This time it is our very talented Lim's turn to host the ROP challenge.
She decided to make it a 'Theme Challenge': Love and Friendship
What a great theme with lots and lots of possibilities for making great cards and paper projects!

This time it will be the adorable "Rock The Farm"-Set from The Greeting Farm!
Wow what a prize !

This time I decided to use one of the cute mice stamps from The Greeting Farm, now available at Summers store! And I have to tell you they are all so adorable and so much fun to work with!
If you like to get some, I would hurry over to Summer's store as they are selling fast and are available now in limited quantities... but only till the next shipment arrives ;-)

So and here comes the card I created for our challenge,
but don't forget I still have to tell you about some exciting news regarding
Summer and her shop Roses on Paper....
make sure to scroll down all the way thru my pictures to read them!
Sorry I got a little caried away today with taking the pictures I think...there are MANY...lol
But I hope you'll enjoy them :-)

Well now here are the exciting news...
Summer / Roses on Paper has been chosen to be 1 of 4 stores to carry an exclusive stamp line illustraded by the amazingly talented Elisabeth Bell for Roses on Paper. Wow how exciting is that?! But here is what Summer has to say in her own words:

"...I am extremely fortunate and blessed to have the most wonderful opportunity to work this year with the most talented, most personable, gorgeous stamp artist out there today! Creator of the much loved Sugar Nellies' Sweet Art Ebony(Honey & Pip) rubber stamps, also the Guardian Angel and Willow & Oakley collections of Whiff of Joy, the amazing artist Elisabeth Bell will be illustrating a new line of rubber stamps, exclusive to Roses on Paper! Through her beautiful, "serendipitous" works, Elisabeth Bell's new line for Roses on Paper will surely tug at the heart strings, evoking memories of past and present and thoughts of future dreams perhaps! Truly I am thankful to her and I welcome Elisabeth to the Roses on Paper Design Team with the widest of open arms! Please join me in welcoming her by leaving her a message on her blog or over on our Paper Craft Planet group! Go to Elisabeth's blog for more information about the exciting news as well!"
