Hi there peeps and hope you are all OK xxx
Today over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, we have one of them there
themes so it’s time to fill your creative boots and do whatever you want to do.
As always, there is a whopper of a voucher up for grabs ….
.. which our lucky winner will get to spend …
… right here and don’t forget to have a mooch over at the website cos new stuff is being added all the time.
So this is what I did and you’ll notice that there isn’t really an image as such, or at least not like the ones I usually use.
But I love this stamp and I wanted to use it but I also wanted to do something a little different other than plain colouring it in. So I paper pieced the main heart bit of it and coloured and glittered the edges, did a bit of decoupage on the leaves (which I did colour in) and then covered up the flower on the image with a rolled flower which I doused rather liberally in Diamond Stickles.
And you know what??
I really like it – it’s so simple and the colours just zing :)
These pics do not do it justice and I am pleased with the result cos it’s for a special friend. I think these Anything Goes challenges are perfect for trying out new ideas and it’s nice to step outside your comfort zone occasionally.
So what did I use today then?
Well everything here came from The Simon Says Stamp Store of course and here are the pics with links that will take you straight to the right place on the website…

Right, I better go and finish off some bits and bobs. I haven’t put the news on yet to see what’s happened re the strikes today cos I couldn't face it after yesterday – it’s all so doom and gloom and God only knows where it will all end.
In tears for sure, and don’t you just feel for future generations :(
But then, glass of vino in hand, I will settle down to watch the next bit of IACGMOOH – ooohhh, wasn't Wille a little narky pants last night – Crissy too!! Poor Sean/ Anthony / Moaning Minnie / whatever!! I felt sorry for him cos he was bereft that Willie had gotten the hump and after all, they were trying to do something nice. Well that bit them on the butt didn’t it!! Are you taking note you naughty producers, heehee!! At least we don’t have to keep looking at Miss Plastic Fantastic Bazoomers (I’m not bitter !!) cos she went last night.
So that’s the dads and lads votes gone then lol!!!
And is it just me but is that Carte Noir addie the most annoying thing on TV at the mo, Bruce Forsyth apart. I actually feel my knuckles turning white when it comes on. Yes, damned attractive springs to mind and the French accent is tres sexy fo sho, BUT there is no way on Gods green earth that I would let my Richard go and fold up the clothes. Whaaaaa? I would never find them again and nor would most women I suspect, whether our tongues are firmly in our cheeks or not.
Now THIS is what I call a sexy French accent – remember this one girls…….
I wonder what he had in mind then? Certainly not oran-jez rappend in ze tropic-al sun.
Ohh la la!!
I’ll see you soon if not sooner and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
