Simon Says Challenge

Good morning. What yukky, wet and cold weather we have again today. Hope it clears up for tomorrow's fireworks.

This week on Simon Says Challenge we want to see you "give thanks" so any creation you can think of to say a "thank you" to someone.

Heidi is very generously giving away a $25 P&P free shopping spree in store.

Our Guest Designer this week is Penny D. Her blog is called A Work of Heart. Thank you Penny for agreeing to be our guest this week.

I wasn't in the mood for cute when I made my card. I had seen a gorgeous card on the Cosmo Cricket group on Facebook which was so simple yet stunning and it gave me inspiration for this card.

The card actually looks better in real life as we've had such dark, dreary days I had terrible trouble trying to get a good picture.

The DP's are Cosmo Cricket and I think they are called "Happy Ever After".

The image is a Penny Black stamp called "Constellations" and I have stamped the image in peeled paint and brushed corduroy distress inks and spritzed it with a very fine spray of water to give a water coloured effect. I then added some diamond Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

The sentiment is a Hero Arts sentiment.

The flowers are a mixture of Hero Arts and Prima and the button is BasicGrey.

The rest of the DT's cards are gorgeous, you must hop over and go and see them.

I shall be back at lunchtime with some very exciting news and a new challenge blog to get really excited about !

Thank's for your visit and for any comments you may leave, I really appreciate them.
