Simon Says: Treat Bags/Boxes on the Monday Challenge


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

Thank you for joining us for the Explore The World Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Treat Bag/Box

With Halloween and Christmas fast approaching most of us need to make a few gift/treat bags or boxes! You could also choose to make a project featuring some sort of container.  We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to create!

Please pop over to visit the DT and our lovely Designer In The Spotlight, Nikki! Everyone has made some fabulous creations and I am sure they would all appreciate a few nice comments ;-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I made a couple of Christmas gift bags using a Lawn Fawn Goody Bag Die and a Mini Dog and Cat Stamp Set

I recently bought this lovely Mini Dog and Cat Stamp Set and now I saw that there is a coordinating die set, which I definitely NEED! makes life so much easier than fussy cutting! ;-)

Aren't they CUTE!! I thought I would pop some chocolate snowballs in them and hang them on the tree, or maybe a tie in one and a pair of earrings or something like that in the other, a wristwatch maybe, hmm so many things you could pop in these! ;-)

The little kitty is looking a bit worried isn't he! haha 

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your inks and stuff and join in!

Happy Crafting

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too

You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Update: I had scheduled this to post as I had work this morning (midwifery home visits) and I tripped and went flying (there is a rude saying which I won't repeat on here, but you know what I mean ;-)) and broke my ankle! OUCH!! I am now trying to pluck up the courage to hobble upstairs to my craft room! Wish me luck :-)

House Mouse 'Party Blowout'

The weeks are flying by and it's time for a new theme on there House Mouse and Friends Challenge! This time it's the lovely Lori's turn to choose the theme 

 Shape It Up
ie shaped creations, or you can always choose the Anything Goes option. The main thing is to have fun with those House Mouse and Friends critters ;-)

How cute is this!! I love how Ellen Jareckie brings these little meeces to life with her awesome artistic skills, each one has a name and a character, they are almost like pets! ;-)

For the inside I used a new 'Friends Wishes' Clear Stamp Set

Thanks for looking! I hope you will join in with the challenge, we need to spread the love of these little critters ;-)
