Simon Says Challenge - Silver, Blue and White

Well, are you ready for it yet ???? ! I'm in a panic at this end but I'm finding writing lists everyday is helping. It's nice to cross things off it, gives some feeling that I am getting somewhere !!

Molls is finishing school today which is a relief really. At least I won't be running about here, there and everywhere. I can stay at home and do what I have to do !! I'm really looking forward to today's activities. I'm off to see Santa himself with Izzy and the pre-school and then back to the main school to sing carols in the playground to end the day and start the Christmas holidays. Wouldn't it be nice if it started snowing ?

Anyway, over to this week's Simon Says Challenge.

This week, we have a colour combo for you. SILVER, BLUE AND WHITE.

The DT are showcasing Penny Black stamps for your pleasure this week. Simon Says Stamp sell a huge range of these gorgeous stamps, check them out !

The DP's are the icy Echo Park "Wintertime". I think I may have mentioned before that these are just gorgeous and full of icy blues, silvers as well as rich browns and reds - love 'em !!

The image is of course by Penny Black and is called "Here Comes Christmas". I have coloured the image with ProMarkers. All the snow is glamour dust and stickles.

The ribbon is from my stash and the mistletoe is by Prima

The snowflake is cut from a Sizzix die and the sentiment is from my stash. I have also added some pearls to the corners.

We hope you can come along and play with us this week. Don't forget the amazing prize. Not only do you get one of these

but 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 ?!!

Thank you so much for your visit and I look forward to seeing all your projects.
