Ahoy There !

Well shiver me timbers, I've made a card and its still daylight !!!

Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has a group over at Papercraft Planet ? Well you do now !! Here is the link to the group page so you can keep up with the latest gossip and also take part in some challenges.

There is a challenge running over there until 14th March so you have plenty of time to join us. The challenge is a colour combo of dark brown, vanilla (cream) and teal and it can be anything you like as long as it is in these colours.

There is also a prize ! The winner will win 3 ink pads of their choice ! How fabby is that. I already know I would choose 3 of the new distress ink pads if I won but I am sure it would take me a fortnight to choose which 3 out of the 12 new ones !!

Here is my entry to the challenge :

The DP's are My Mind's Eye "Little Boy Blue" - oh yes, soooo yummy !! So yummy in fact I couldn't have a boy without a girl so I have "Mary, Mary" too !! Keep your eyes peeled for a card soon (if I can bear to cut into them !!).

The fabulous image is a Boefje stamp which Heidi has recently taken delivery of in the Simon Says Stamp Store. These stamps just add to the huge range that SSS already stocks ! You can find the full range of these fantastic, quirky stamps RIGHT HERE ! This little fella is called "Luuk" and he's an absolute darlin' to colour and yes, he's been coloured with ProMarkers !

The ribbon is from my stash.

The ticket is from the range of My Minds Eye "Little Boy Blue" and I bought my papers and tickets from Sam at Craft Island who never lets you down with such fantastic service. Sam puts packs together of paper ranges so you don't have to buy all the sheets individually. She also has packs of matching Bazzill too !

I can also enter this card for these challenges :

Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon-Tastic

Stamp Something - Receipe - Designer paper, buttons, ribbon

Quixotic Challenges - One for the Boys

Fussy and Fancy - Movies (Pirates of the Carribean maybe or even Peter Pan (I think he looks like one of the Lost Boys !)).

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave. It was lovely to see you !
