Week 265 - Summer Girls

Hello, it's Mervi here.
Welcome to join us with the new theme "Summer Girls".
 Show us what you or your girls are doing in this summer.

Our generous sponsors are, first:

FlonzCraft are a small family-owned design and craft company from New Zealand, a very small country where all people are great neighbours. We work hard for our work and store philosophy to reflect that in our company. We will never be ashamed of our products. Our main goal is making and selling rubber and clear stamps and we have and unique collection of stamps that you can not find anything else.
another sponsor:

At Buttons For Brains we specialise in card making kits as well as an increasing range of craft accessories. We chose to focus on card making kits because they allow crafters to try out different ranges of products without the need to buy complete packs of everything needed to create a handmade card. The card making kits all contain top quality materials and are suitable for beginners and experienced crafters alike. They also make great gifts. Beautifully packaged the items are despatched quickly and delivered first class. We know crafters want access to the very latest products and so will be adding new kits and supplies regularly so remember to visit often or even better, sign up for our Newsletter.

Here's the fabulous samples from the Design Team, enjoy and click the name to say hello.
