Simon Says HAPPY HELLO and Recipe Challenge


THIS BLOG HOP AND BLOG CANDY ARE NOW CLOSED !
What a silly billy I am ! I accidentally turned off my comments box to this post when I published it so I'm sorry if you have been looking for it ! All is now restored !!

Wow, this certainly is the place to be if you want to win prizes !!

To celebrate the newest members of Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, the Design Team members are participating in a blog hop, to inspire you and introduce our newest team members !!!

If you didn't start at the blog hop at the beginning, then you want to head back to Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog so you do not miss anything. At each blog, there will be a mystery letter - collect all of the letters, unscramble them and post your answer at the end. Be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end, for a chance to win. When you get to the Simon Says Stamp Blog, leave a comment that you hopped to ALL blogs, and the mystery phrase and you will be entered to win. At EACH blog you need to leave a comment - this will get you a chance to win your choice of 1 Cuttlebug embossing folder at EACH blog AND an entry into the GRAND PRIZE !! You MUST enter the challenge to win !!! Be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end for your chances to win. When you get to the Simon Says Stamp Blog, leave a comment that you hopped to all blogs, entered the challenge (we will check !!) and you will be entered to win a fabby grand prize !

The grand prize is a SIZZIX BIG SHOT or a $50 voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!!!!! The choice is yours !! What an absolutely fantastic prize !



This week, the DT are showcasing Stampabilities stamps which include House Mouse, Happy Hopper and Gruffies. If you do not have any of these stamps, no worries, you can still join us in this week's challenge but use the recipe in your creation. If you do have any of the Stampabilities stamps, we would love to see them !

Here is my card for this week's recipe challenge. The recipe to follow is 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image - such an easy recipe to follow !



The DP's are DCWV "The Green Stack".

The image is a House Mouse image called "Stamp, Stamp, Stamp"! Simon Says Stamps sells a huge range of House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hopper stamps and you can find the stamp I used for sale HERE ! I coloured the image with ProMarkers and then distressed and inked the edges with antique linen distress ink.

The postcard image was a free download.

The twill ribbon is by Melissa Frances.

The leather button belonged to my Grandad and is from my button tin of ancient buttons given to me by my Grandma when she died.

The little label is from a bag of labels by Fancy Pants. I inked the edges, added some transfer letters and a bit of tatty string !

Don't forget you need to both enter our challenge AND comment on all the blogs to be in with a chance of winning that grand prize of the Sizzix Big Shot. You can now pre-order from Simon Says Stamp the brand new Tim Holtz Alterations Movers and Shapers Dies for the Sizzix - can you imagine not only receiving the Big Shot as a prize but also being able to purchase these brand new dies to go with it - awesome as they say in the USA !!!

Thank's for stopping by ! Have fun and good luck !!!!

The MYSTERY LETTER for my blog is H
