Simon Says Challenge

Good morning !

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who entered our challenge last week and also answered my plea for more entries ! Yes, we made it over 400 entries so well done to everyone !

This week we have a sketch for you by our lovely Iris

This week the DT are showcasing Magnolia stamps and their cards are just amazing again this week.

The papers are Cosmo Cricket "Gretel" which I found lurking in my stash. They are so gorgeous in real life.

The image is Sparkling Tilda and she has been coloured with ProMarkers. I masked her and then inked the background with antique linen distress ink and then stamped a new Papermania stamp onto the background.

The blue card is Core'dinations which I sanded.

The ribbon is from my stash and I added onto them some words from some Melissa Frances transfers I have. I was amazed at how well these rubbed onto the ribbon and actually stayed on. These are the best transfers I have ever used.

The flowers are Prima and I added some Tim Holtz metal foliage to the centres.

The sentiment is an October Afternoon transfer.

Simon Says Stamp has a huge range of Magnolia products, probably nearly all Magnolia products by now ! and they also stock many of the other items I have used on my card too.

Don't forget that there is a prize of a $25 shopping spree (P&P free too !) for the winner.

I've just returned from the school's "run a mile for Sports Relief" and we had a fabulous time. I stood by the sidelines with the water bottles and shouting lots of words of encouragement at not only the children but the parents that took part too. Off for a coffee and warm my cold feet up !

We hope you can join us again this week in our challenge and we look forward to seeing you !
