Simon Says Challenge - Pink (or blue) with Green and Brown

Good morning ! Wow, has it really been a whole week since I last posted ? Doesn't the time fly when you have been having fun ! I haven't been sat idle though. I had a large commission to get done and also a poorly baby, a swimming gala and trying to sort things out for our camping trip. I've also been trying to do my DT work for while we are away - phew ! Still, keeps me off the streets annoying old ladies !!!

Before I tell you about this week's challenge I would like to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Simon of Simon Says Stamp ! Simon is of course Heidi and Jason's dog and the mascot of Simon Says Stamp and its his birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIMON !!

So, this week's challenge on Simon Says Challenge is a colour combo. PINK (or blue) WITH GREEN AND BROWN. The DT are showcasing Penny Black stamps this week. Simon Says Stamp carries (at the last count) 1,000 Penny Black stamps ! Go check them all out !!!

I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and they are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week ! They are giving away a shopping spree of $25 ! I did "tweek" the sketch a little !

The DP's are October Afternoon "Farm Fresh".

The image is by Penny Black and is called "Lazy Days" which I thought fitted in very well with the weather we have been having in the UK this week !

The flowers and brads are from my stash.

The prize this week is a fantastic voucher for a shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store of $25 and you don't even have to pay the P&P !

We look forward to seeing your entries to this week's Challenge.

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

Have a great day !
