Simon Says ,,,,, Anything Goes !


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I made 2 cards to share today.

First up is this cute woodland scene using Lawn Fawn 'Into the Woods' clear stamp set, and coordinating Paper Pack and Sequins 

I really had fun making this ,,, aren't they all CUTE ! :-) I coloured with Copics and then used Prismacolor Pencils over the top. I think this method gives the fur a nice slightly mottled and more natural sheen :-)

Next Up ,,,

I used Lawn Fawn Bake Me a Cake Clear Stamp Set, Hello Sunshine Mixed Sequins,  and Hello Sunshine 6x6 Paper Pack

I think this was the very first Lawn Fawn set I bought and I still love it. It's brilliant for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, christening ,,, ANYTHING !! :)

Wild Rose Studio 'Pickle with Tipple'

Hi all ,, did you know that there are ONLY 238 days left to Christmas !! YES !! not long to wait is it ,,, Santa will soon be climbing down your chimney ! :-)

The theme just starting on the ABC Christmas Challenge was chosen by our lovely Lacey and she chose  

I for ICE 
I used this cute Wild Rose Studio 'Pickle with Tipple' image. I have to admit that I had a brain freeze and went off on a tangent. I intended to use Pickle on Igloo, then changed my mind and totally forgot the theme !!  oopsie :-)
I added some ice water, in the form of a snowflake border and he is sitting on the polar ice cap sipping some ice cold red wine :-)

This is one of my all time fave Christmas images ,,,, so perfect for so many of my family and friends ,,,, give em a glass of  'Merry' :-)
I used Hero Arts Prisma glitter for his hat, icy floor and the snowflake border and paper pieced the gift.

 As you can see he has just opened his pressie and it was a case of red, which he is just sampling  :-)
