Simon Says Challenge - Let's Go To The Movies and Dry Embossing

What a bad, bad blogger I have been and I do apologise. I have had a fantastic time these last couple of weeks with the girls being off for the Easter holidays and the weather has been gorgeous so we have made the most of it. Hubby has been at home too so we have been out and about most days lapping up the Spring air.

It was also Izzy's 3rd birthday on Monday so we had a very busy day and she was truly exhausted by the end of the day - I don't think she could "birthday" any longer !!! I can't believe she is 3 already - where does the time go ?

Anyway, back to this week's challenge over at Simon Says Challenge. We are having a "Let's go to the movies" theme and some dry embossing thrown in for good measure ! Take a look at the wonderful creations by the DT - they are amazing and not all the names of movies either ! Very inspiring.

I have been wanting to make a shaped card for a long time and finally bit the bullet especially when I had these new Magnolia stamps to play with from the NEC !

This card is also very spooky ! Spooky because I made it and then went on a bit of a blog hop and what did I see ? Nearly the same card looking back at me ! Jodie of Oz had made one very similar a few days before and I honestly hadn't seen it before I made mine !

I had to blow the dust off my Cricut to make this shape as the blossom nesties aren't large enough.

The DP's are DCWV "Nana's Nursery".

The heart doily I bought from the NEC.

Tilda is coloured with ProMarkers and I have added some Stickles to her wings. Simon Says Stamp has the new range of Magnolia stamps in store for you to buy along with 1,000's of others too !

The flowers are from my stash and the jewels are by Magnolia which I bought at the NEC. You can also buy these from the Simon Says Stamp Store.

I added some liquid pearls around the outside of the card.

We hope you can join us for this fantastic challenge this week too. There is a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp store prize on offer too !

Don't forget my blog candy which will finish on Saturday. If you click on the picture in my sidebar, it will take you directly to the post.

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

Hopefully I will get back to crafting soon ! School starts back on Monday and all the usual activities and so we will gradually get back into a routine. Enjoy the rest of the holidays if you are still at home too !
