Simon Says Challenge - Happy St. Patrick's Day/A Splash of Green

Top 'o' the mornin to ya and happy St. Patrick's Day ! Lovely warm(ish) and half sunny morning here today and it makes you good to feel alive (I obviously woke up on the right side of the bed this morning then !!!).

At Simon Says Challenge we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day so we would like to see your St. Patrick's Day creations or failing that anything with green in it or even on it !!


The DT are showcasing Basic Grey products this week. Simon Says Stamp has a huge range of Basic Grey products and has the new lines of Kioshi and Green at Heart in store together with all the embellies you could possibly think of to co-ordinate with these gorgeous lines. I have just put in my order and had terrible difficulty deciding which to have. I think I chose one of everything in the end !!!

We have a Designer in the Spotlight this week. Please welcome Gunn !

The prize is a $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp store so you too can get your hands on all those Basic Grey goodies or even all the other scrummy new items which have just landed at the warehouse !

Here's my card.....

The DP's are Basic Grey "Boxer".

The image is Charlie the Chimney Sweep by Whiff of Joy and you can find him HERE in the Simon Says Stamp store. I coloured him with ProMarkers and added distress ink to the edges. The "good luck" sentiment came with Charlie.

The ribbon is from my local market.

The shamrock I made myself from some green Bazzill, a heart punch and I drew the stem !

The gems are from my stash.

We look forward to visiting you to see what you come up with.

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you may leave, they always mean so much.

Don't forget my blog candy. Just click on the photo in my side bar and it will take you directly to the post. Don't forget to leave your answer after your name ! I am still having the answers given in the comments section and unfortunately, they won't count - sorry !

Can I also tell you about a new challenge over at Papercraft Planet in the Simon Says Stamp Group ? You can find the new challenge just here. It would be lovely if you could join us and you can win a prize too !!!

Last but not least I would like to wish my wonderful, bestest blogging buddy TARA a very happy 40th Birthday ! Hope you have a fantastic day my darlin and can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks at the NEC !!! Tara also has birthday blog candy which will finish shortly.

Have a great day !
