Hi peeps and hope all is well with you today xxx

We are half way through the week and time to check out what happening over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge

As Spring SEEMS to be arriving (famous last words), the challenge is to use Spring colours or an Easter creation if you celebrate Easter

This week the Design Team have all featuring Magnolia products. The Simon Says Stamp Store sells an amazing range of Magnolia goodies including papers, doohickey dies, flowers as well as the stamps and now, just in are the NEW Magnolia Mini Stamps- check them out !

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant ……

…. $50 voucher for a fab spendathon at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

Right, now for the card - shades on chicksies ……

… cos we are bright and zingy and Springy lol!!!

I used my new Tilda With Daffodil stamp (awww!!) and coloured her with the following Copics -

E00, E21, R11 (skin) E40, E50 (hair) C00, C1, C3, Y0000, Y06, Y08, Y15, Y38, YG0000, YG01, YG03 (clothes etc)

And just for a change I did a round card which I don't often do cos my brain doesn’t work in circles (in fact, sometimes it doesn’t work at all lol!!)

I used a Cricut cartridge and added a bit of doodling.

The daises were made using a McGill Buttercup punch  - have to be awkward don’t I!!!!

The leaves were cut from a Martha Stewart Frond Leaf punch.

I coloured it with a YG03 Copic and then cut the leaves off.

The buttons and ribbons were from my stash (which is in need of a jolly good sort out to be honest – it is a real mess at the mo!!).

And there’s me done for today chicksies.

Enjoy your day and I’ll see you tomoz cos it’s Fairy Day :)

Hugs to all xxx
