Simon Says Challenge - It's Sketch Time !

Helloooo and welcome to a very chilly Wednesday. If you are one of the lucky ones and has snow, enjoy ! We seem to be the only place in the Country with no snow whatsoever, even the next town has snow !! I'm a big kid when it comes to snow so I have no nose pressed against the window at the merest mention of the white stuff !!

Anyway, to fend off the cold why not join us in our challenge over at Simon Says Challenge this week ? We have a very easy, fabulous sketch by our very own Domi for you to use.

The Design Team are also showcasing BasicGrey this week so if you have any BasicGrey products, we would love to see them but its no a condition of the challenge.

The fantastic news is that Heidi is offering throughout the month of December a $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store - how amazing is that ?!!

I am totally in lurve with MFT (My Favorite Things) products at the moment and so I decided to use my new collection on my card this week.

The BasicGrey I have used are the DP's which are from the new collection "Marjolaine". Wow, these papers are yummy with gorgeous blue's, green's, cream and espresso.

The image is an MFT Pure Innocence stamp called "Merry Kissmas" and I have coloured it with ProMarkers and Copics. I also added lots of Picket Fence Stickles and also Icicle Stickles.

The flowers I made using the new MFT Die-namics dies which are just fabulous. My flowers aren't perfect yet (wow, you should see the ones their DT make !) but practice makes perfect as they say. The rose in the centre has been cut with the rolled rose die from felt. I have added some sparkles to the centre. The smaller flowers have been cut using the rolled flower die from some Bazzill. I sprayed them all with some Pearl Glimmer Mist.

We look forward to seeing your take on Domi's sketch. For some inspiration, check out the rest of the DT's work over at the challenge blog, they have made some fantastic cards again this week and all so different too.

Thank you for your visit today and for any comments you may leave. Take care and wrap up warm !

Love 'n' hugs,

    The white stuff is falling hard and fast here at the mo. - very pretty, trouble is my little soft top car doesn't like it so it's 'Shank's Pony' for me at the moment.
