Simon Says Challenge - Christmas but no red or green !


Well, there's another week gone by in a flash !

I hope you are all well and keeping warm. I must say that the novelty has now worn off and I'm fed up of feeling cold now. This morning though feels like a heatwave as its already hit 0 degrees on the weather station and apparently it could get up to at least 2 degrees today ! whooo hoooo !!!

Anyway, we have a challenge for you over at Simon Says Challenge to help along with those Christmas cards that still need to be done ! The only problem is, you can't use any red or green !

Don't forget that the lucky winner will receive a $50 postage and packaging free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store - just how fantastic is that ? !



The DP's are Cosmo Cricket "Mitten Weather" - just love 'em and these papers are perfect for no red or green !

The Angel is one of the CC Design Angels from last year and she has been coloured with ProMarkers. I also added some glamour dust to her wings.

The doily has been cut with one of the new MFT die-namics dies and so have the flowers. I have used the rolled rose and the rolled flower. Now it looks like the rolled rose has flown off the shelves again at Simon Says Stamp. If you keep an eye out under MFT in the store, they are sure to be back in stock very soon (they were there yesterday when I looked !!!)

The snowflake has been cut from a Sizzix die and I've covered that in glamour dust too. The snowflake border is one of the Sizzix Tim Holtz dies called "Snowflake Flurries". That sat still for all of 30 seconds so I covered that in glamour dust too !!!

The sentiment is a stamp from my stash.

I had great fun with this challenge and hope you do too. We look forward to seeing your projects. The DT have again done a wonderful job with their cards this week so hop over and get yourself some inspiration !

Thank you for your visit and hope to see you again soon.

  6. Hi Jo,
    Oooooh I'm loving this. Cute image & fab papers. I'm definitely treating myself to those, maybe in June, when I paid Xmas off, LOL!!!
    The Tim Holtz die is to 'die' for, especially with the Glamour Dust. Love the rolled flowers too. Told you I was loving it! Hope you're keeping snug & warm. Not much snow here, just ice & bloody cold!
    Big Hugs,
    Andie xx
