Hi there lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today :)
It’s that time of the week when we nip across the water and catch up with our friends in the jolly old US of A cos it’s time for another fab Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
This week we have inspiration in the form of this beautimous summer board which was put together by our very own Joy.
I think it look amazing :)
As always, Heidi will be giving away a whopping …..
… gift voucher which our lucky winner will get to spend in the store ….
… right here.
We’ve all used Hero Arts products this week but of course you don’t have to.
… this is what I did.
I love this cute image – it’s the way her hair sticks out of her cap (soooo sweet) and she is called Beachy Beatrice. She is one of the new CC Designs images and I put her onto a Nestabilities LABELS 18 Eighteen and then coloured her with these Copics -
Skin – E000, E00, E11, E21, R00, R02, R20
Hair – E15, E25, E29, E33, E50, E51
The rest – E00, E43, Y0000, Y00, Y02, Y06, Y08, Y11, Y15, Y17. Y21, Y28, Y38 (phew!!)
The sunny papers are from an Echo Park Hello Summer paper pack – perfect for this I thought :)
I’ve had this die for ages but this is the first time I’ve used it properly (hangs head in shame!!).
The orange gemstones started out as clear Hero Arts gemstones and I just coloured them to match the card using my Copics.
So that’s my sunny card for today sweet peeps.
I hope yer eyeballs are still in one piece – I didn’t give you a BRIGHT warning, ooops!!! It’s the only bright thing around here at the mo cos the sun didn't stay around for very long yesterday and first thing this morning the heavens opened. I think my most worn item of this summer so far has been these bad boys …..
My old faithful wellies!!
I ‘heart’ them :)
These aren't my actual ones cos I wouldn’t dare put them on here as they are generally covered in filth and ming!!! But this is what they would look like if I cleaned them!!! They used to look green and shiny but now they always seem to look, well brown and muddy really, like they have a sort of a camouflage pattern. I know I could run them under the tap but being the slob that I am, I don’t :( I just take them off and hang them up cos I always think that I will do it next time!!!! I’ve had them for 30 years and they are still going strong, bless em!!!!
I call them my Captain Scarlet wellies cos they are indestructible!!!
When we went to stay with Richard’s cousin a few months back, we took our outdoor stuff as we were going walking and it was really muddy. So out comes Jane’s wellies – pristine and gleaming. And then out came mine – ohh I nearly died!!!! Still didn’t clean the beggars though did I!!!!!
Anyway, I’ll be back tomorrow with another card to share so until then, have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
