Funky Fairy's Christmas In August Challenge ;-)

I am still on holiday and at the moment am camping in Devon so I hope Mr Bloggy does his job and posts this for me :-)

I am hoping that we're having glorious weather in the UK !! :-)

The theme this week on the Funky Fairys Challenge is Christmas In August !

I used my fab Penny Black stamp 'Let it Snow' I do love this one :-)

I used some free Funky Fairys paper that I downloaded from the Blog of Inspiration aren't they lovely ! So there you are,,, no excuses not to enter this week and also you can cross at least one card of your christmas list ! :-) better to get started early ! :-)

The snowflake was made using a spellbinders die cut and the snowflake brad is papermania. the stamp was free with a Do Crafts magazine :-) Nice eh ! :-)

Simon Says Anything But a Card :-)

I am still in the UK on holiday and when Mr Blogger posts this I will be on a camp site somewhere in Devon, not exactly roughing it tho we will be in a cozy challet :-) Hope the weather's nice !! :-)

The theme this week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is Anything But a Card :-) I made a box like this a few weeks ago to store my Simon Says Stamps in you can see it here if you like :-) I will be making several more of these, they are perfect for keeping your stamps in ! This box started life as an Ariel washing tablet box ! :-) The DT have made some other fantastic creations so you should hop over to the challenge blog to see them. Please visit their blogs too and leave them a comment :-)

I used Summer Edwin, I paper pieced his top and trousers using basic grey papers and a Tilda from the Summer Collection,,, this one is called Loves me Tilda,, I coloured them with copics and popped them on the box :-) The text is also from the Magnolia summer collection. The papers I used are Stamping Up and whitewash coredinations. The letters are cut out on my cricut and ther fancy edge is a Martha Stewart border punch.

Heidi is offering a $25 shopping spree to the Simon Stays Stamp Store and she is also paying the postage !! How fab is that !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
