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 PENNY BLACK 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
Penny Black stamps were my very first love and were amongst the first stamps I ever bought. If I am not mistakes the very first one was Snowy, and I believe he is still available to buy! An oldie but definitely a goodie.

For todays card I used this super cute Penny Black Bird-Day Cling Stamp. There is a whole range of these cuties and I am intending to add to my collection ;-)

Aww those poor little birds, I am sure they manage to fly away and don't become the cat's lunch though ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

Stitched Flourish Ribbon

It's time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge and this week it's 

Sketch #103 or sketchie free for all 
Colour - blue and green. Either or.
Technique - make a tag or include a tag
Product - use lace, either paper or the real stuff

I went with the Blue/Green colour combo and used a brand spanking new Stitched Flourish Ribbon Die from the new Simon Says Stamp 'Splash Of Color' Release 

I need to make a quick and easy CAS set of cards and thought this might be a nice design, varying the colours and the sentiments, what do you think? 

I love the papers in the Lawn Fawn Beachside  paper pack and will need to get another pack! I am using them for almost every card I make! :-)

This is the whole  'Splash Of Color' Release, click on the pick to see the whole range :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi and Co at Simon Says Stamp so a fab shopping spree on offer this week! 

Challenges :
Less Is More    Snippets, the green card and patterned paper were cut from snippets.
Crafting From The Heart   Anything Goes
Not Just Cards   Anything Goes
Always Something Creative   Without an Image

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
