Simon Says Challenge - All You Need is Love !

Sorry I've been so elusive again - just a bad time to get down and crafty !!

The challenge this week is LOVE!!! That's a pretty easy one as Valentine's Day is RIGHT around the corner, but it can be for an Anniversary, a wedding , or just something for your sweetie!

You can win a $25 shopping spree at SIMON SAYS STAMP (+ free shipping!!!) PLUS ......

You could also win these scrummy goodies direct from the CHA show ! All of these goodies are BRAND NEW to the crafting scene so make sure you are the first to get your gluey fingers on them !!!

This week our Guest Designer is SAMANTHA. If you haven't popped by her blog, you really should! Samantha is getting married soon and made her own wedding invitations. You should go and see them, they are gorgeous.

The rest of the DT's cards are stunning too !

The DP's are the yummy BoBunny "Love Bandit" papers - aren't they gorgeous ? The base card is BoBunny double dot.

The image is by CC Designs and is Liesel with her wheelbarrow. Simon Says Stamp now has these cuties in stock and ready to buy !

She has been coloured with ProMarkers and I filled her wheelbarrow with punched hearts, inked the edges and added some Stickles for some sparkle. I also gave her wings the Stickles treatment.

The heart I cut myself from some chipboard and painted it with some Picket Fence crackle paint, inked the edges and sprayed generously with pearl glimmer mist.

The felt flower I cut myself and added and gorgeous pink button.

We look forward to seeing what you make for our challenge this week.

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you leave - they always mean so much to me.
