This week at Simon Says Challenge, we have an extra special challenge for you. Heidi is celebrating her birthday tomorrow "Happy Birthday Heidi !!" and to celebrate, Heidi sent all the DT and our guest designer this week, Mina, a box of goodies for us to use and chose a sketch created by our fabulous DT member, Iris, to work from. This week's challenge is "Heidi's Choice" !

Here is the sketch :

Heidi is also offering this amazing prize to the winner of this week's challenge. Just feast your eyes on these beauties !!!

This is the list of goodies you will win :

There are 3 of the BRAND NEW copic marker colors and glitter markers which have just arrived in stock.

Magnolia papers

A Magnolia stamp - Tilda puppy

A Simon Says Set (Heidi's fave frogs jumping for joy!)

A Martha Stewart punch

Holtz alcohol inks and

Some pretty purple prima flowers.

We would like to thank MINA for agreeing to join us and be in our Designer Spotlight, I am sure you all know her and her fabulous work but if not you really should go and see her fantastic blog, her work is amazing and she has made 2 wonderful cards for us to show you !! The DT have made some amazing creations this week too. Go to visit their blogs for more details of how they made them and of course there is hidden candy on at least one blog !!

Heidi also has more surprises up her sleeve it seems ! We received an email this morning saying that the Birthday girl herself has requested that if we manage to get 200 entries and above she will give her DT a special present herself to thank us for all our hard work ! Just how wonderful is that ?! So, please, please, please support us and get your entry in and not only will it help us get to our special prize but also you will be in with a chance of winning that amazing prize !!

Here is my take on Iris' sketch :

The base card is from The Papermillshop.

The DP's are DCWV papers "Sweet" and they are gorgeous. I really love this set. They are all glittery in real life and those cakes look so yummy !

The image is from a Hero Arts set that Heidi sent me in my box of goodies called "Tea" and I have stamped these in Brilliance Cocoa.

The sentiment is also from the same set and I stamped it onto a tag which is from a sheet of tags which I acquired from somewhere and I can't remember where - sorry.

The flowers are Quickutz Doo Dads.

The brads are BasicGrey brads.

The ribbon is a gorgeous Martha Stewart ribbon which was in my goodie box too.

I still have loads more goodies to use and hope to make something else very soon to show the rest of the goodies to you which I received.

I hope you enjoy your tea and cake on your Birthday Heidi !!!

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave. They mean so much.

See you soon !
