Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes !

Good morning from a very snowy Wiltshire ! Yes, like the rest of the Country, we now have snow and lots of it too which we are all excited about but it has had its problems too. I don't think its going to snow on Christmas Day here but it looks like we shall still have snow on the ground which is very exciting and it will feel very Christmassy !!

We are still holding our challenges over at Simon Says Challenge and this week we have a very easy one for you ANYTHING GOES ! Yes, you can make anything you like, enter our challenge and be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize......

During the month of December, you also get another one of these !

That's a shopping spree of $50 in the Simon Says Stamp Store !!! What are you waiting for ?!!

The DP's are Cosmo Cricket "Mitten Weather"

The image is by Inkadinkado. I can't actually find the stamp now listed in the store but a very, very similar chap is in this set of stamps by Inkadinkado and he is the "Ornate Snowman".

I stamped him in brown ink and added lots of Stickles.

I also used the new gorgeous nesties called "Lacey Squares". Just love these and I think I might get the circles to go with them. They work perfectly with the classic square set.

The sentiment was also from an Inkadinkado stamp and came from a holiday tag set, a similar one you can see here

The flowers are from my stash and I added some purple pearls to the centres. The leaves I punched from silver card and also some vellum.

I also decorated the inside of this card with matching paper and lace and made a pocket as I'm using it as a Christmas gift card.

We hope that you can join us in our challenge this week even though you may be up to your ears in preparations !

I'm hoping I'll be back before the big day to show you another gift card I made but just in case I don't, I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and have a super, duper, fantastic time !

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

Love 'n' hugs,
