Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK today. Please excuse the very drab and uninspiring post title but I could not for the life of me think what to call this today!! Suffice to say that I made a card that I quite liked – that’s it really (sad isn't it!!)
It’s that time of the week when we nip over to the jolly old US of A and catch up with our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge
Before I get to the old cardio, just a quickie to let you know that we are running our annual Children's Holiday Challenge ….
…. and we already have some truly wonderful masterpieces, so if you know any crafty little bods ages 2-16 years old, why not get them to enter (Kyla you are NOT using my Copics!!) It’s an Anything Goes theme so they can really get creative, and we would love to see what the little sausages do. PLUS there are 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs :). If you click the pic above it will take you to the right place on the website or you can read all about it here.
Right onto our challenge this week which is
This is a photo which has been done by Simon Says Stamp's very own Kristina Werner.
Kristina is super inspiring, sweet as can be and uber talented and she is the one who gets to choose what goes into the Monthly Card Kits that Simon Says sell, plus she designed some stamp sets that can be purchased through the card kit and also in the store separately. But if that wasn't enough she is the designer of the exclusive dies that we featured last week. So all in all, she is one very talented girlie indeed :)
And this ….
… is the inspiration photo we have all used this week - it’s of her gorgeous kitty cat, Mannie, aww:).
The DT have all featured Basic Grey products but of course you don't have to use them to join in. But we would love to see them used if you have any.
As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

I used one of the new Turning Leaves Magnolia stamps – this is Tilda With Daisy & Mushrooms and I’ll do the close up and colours I used in the next pic.
The papers are all from the Basic Grey Little Black Dress 6 x 6 Paper Pack

Oops of the little gems has slipped here :(
Slap dash Phillips strikes again!!!
The little blooms are cut with the 3 smallest dies from the Spellbinders Rose Creations set. I found some tiny red sequins in my stash and popped them in the centre before I (badly) adding the gems.
So that’s the old card done and if you get a sec, do nip and check out the challenge peeps and also the amazing cardage for the DT. Till next time have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all
