This week Martine has agreed to be in our Designer Spotlight :-) Not only did she make my blog fabulous she also designed the Simon Says Stamp and Simon Says Stamp Challenge blogs too !! Thanks Martine x x Go to the Challenge blog to see her fabulous card and the wonderful cards made by the DT ,,, all of them are gorgeous :-)

I followed Emma's fabulous sketch on the Allsorts Challenge blog this is the first time I am entering this challenge ,,:-) Emma also asked us to use 2 colours of our own choice, so I chose red/turquoise :-)

I won this fabulous Penny Black Rubber Stamp 3844k VANILLA Girl Dog Walking in a competition on the Simon Says Stamp blog,,, Heidi was asking us to name a few PB stamps used on some beautiful cards and the first one with the correct answers won a PB stamp of our choice :-) and it was ME !!! :-) Thanks Heidi ;-) x x

I coloured the image with copics and added gorgeous COPIC Twinkling Stars markers to the jewellery etc,, these pens are gorgeous !! The papers are from My mind's Eye and coredinations.I think I might have cheated a bit here ,,,, oops,, the paw print paper I made using a paw print stamp and distress inks,, does that count as another patterned paper?? :-) I was so engrosssed in following the sketch I forgot about the recipe :-) never mind the DT will be lenient on all your entries too ,,, it is open to interpretation :-) The flowers are Prima and the sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps CAT DOG BEST OF FRIENDS Lot Exclusive Set

Would anyone like to have one of these PB stamps ??? I will be offering this one in my weekly blog candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp If you would like a chance to win one see my blog candy post at the top of my blog :-)
