Lawnscaping Challenge #65

It's September already?!?!?! That means it's time for another challenge!

Break out your favorites - stamps, inks, papers, whatever!

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp! The lucky winner will get a $25 gift certificate! 

Our guest designer this month is Vicky Papaioannou of Clips N Cuts!

Hi, I'm Vicky Papaioannou. I am a wife, a mother of two and a full-time computer science teacher. I am also a computer addict and can't live without internet. I love cardmaking and blogging where I frequently share my creations. I also have a YouTube channel where I upload weekly how-to videos to inspire fellow cardmakers. 
I am truly honored that I am a guest designer here today! Lawn Fawn is one of my favorite stamp companies and I think that all their stamps are a must have in each release. So for today's challenge I used two of my all time favorite stamp sets, the "blue skies" and the "home sweet home".


Vicki is SO amazing - she created TWO cards for this challenge!

They are both so fabulous!!!!!!!!!
