Simon Says Challenge - It's Sketch Time !

Here I am, skidding in at 100mph ! Phew !

Welcome to another Simon Says Challenge ! Wow, it's Wednesday again already !

This week we have a fabulous sketch for you designed by our super talented DT member, Domi.

We are also pleased to announce that we have a new member to the Simon Says Stamp family and Design Team - Tara ! Welcome Tara ! You can see Tara's fabulous card along with the rest of the DT's fabulous cards over at the challenge blog.

Also, this week, the Design Team is showcasing Crafters Companion stamps - Popcorn Bear & SWALK stamps! Simon Says Stamp has an amazing selection of all of them, and they are TOO GOOD to pass up!! So head on over to the store and check them out !!!!!

This week, the prize is a WHOPPING $50 voucher from Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!! Whheeeeeehoooooo !!!!!! How exciting eh?? So, get out your stamps and start creating!!! We can't wait to see what you create !!!! Have a great week & good luck!

For my card this week I used a Popcorn the Bear image called "Thank's a Bunch" and I decided to blow the dust off my distress inks and watercolour paper and boy, it was hard going ! I am so used to using my ProMarkers now I had forgotten how to paint !! I'm actually really pleased with how my painting turned out though.

The DP's are BasicGrey Pyrus, these are sooo yummy !

The flowers have been made with the MFT rolling rose die and I have put a pearl brad in the centres.

The lace is from my stash.

We look forward to you joining us in our challenge this week !

I received the super fantastic news when I got up this morning and read my emails that I had won the MFT Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoasters ! I am soooo happy, I'm jumping for joy ! So far its been a terrific week, full of happy times and surprises and I can't wait for Saturday when its my 40th Birthday - have I mentioned that before ?!!! I was feeling very apprehensive about it all but this week has been so good so far, I'm actually beginning to think that life does begin at 40 !!

Take care of yourselves and thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you leave.
