Simon Says ,, ‘May Flowers’ Card Kit !! :-)

Woo Hoo ! the postie came today to drop off the latest Simon Says May Flowers Card Kit of the month and I have to say it is FABULOUS ! :-)

There have been quite a few people who have been disappointed at not being able to buy a previous kit as they do sell out fairly quickly, the only way to be sure of getting one is to subscribe.

 It's like getting a birthday gift every month ! Treat yourself ,, you know you're worth it !! :-)


Isn’t it GORGEOUSSS !!! :-)
This is my first one, I LOVED the embossed and die cut panel, so pretty :-)


I stamped the flower 9 times, fussy cut and layered the petals to give a 3D effect and laid it across the aperture. I added a few ( ok maybe a few too many) gems to highlight the embossed flowers. I used a pearl paint dabber on the chipboard heart, selectively stamped part of a sentiment to make a tag and added a twine bow.


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

On The Go :-)

Hi all :-) I am here with my card for the new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,

One Papertaker ! :-)
So you're only allowed one piece of patterned paper !

We are sponsored by our lovely teamie Mary and her daughter Andrea aka The Ribbon Girl so a fab prize on offer :-)

I made another bike card  and the only patterned paper was used to paper piece it :-) 


I love this die from Memory box and have paper pieced it with some gorgeous paper from the Simon’s Exclusive April Card Kit.
 I used the new Triangles die and thought it looked like the stairs on the side of a building, as seen in NYC on Sex In The City ,,, lol :-) I used some of the triangle shapes left behind to make the banner. The cardstock and washi tape was also in the kit and I embossed the turquoise card and then sprayed with shine ,, looks fab IRL :-)
