Simon Says Challenge - A Recipe

Good morning and welcome to another Simon Says Challenge !

This week, we have a recipe for you : 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image

We are being joined again by our fantastic Guest Designer Cathy.

As always, we have a super prize of a shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The DP's I used are more of the yummy, scrummy My Minds Eye, Stella Rose "Hattie" - just love this new collection if you hadn't guessed !! I had to get this paper pad as "Hattie" is Izzy's middle name. It would have been her first name but we weren't brave enough at the time !!

The image is a My Favourite Things "Pure Innocence" stamp called "Being Cute Is What I Do". This cutie has been coloured with Copic Sketch pens and paper pieced. New in the store a few weeks ago was the Copic Blending Card X-Press It so I decided to buy some and try it out. It is fantastic, so smooth and blending seems to be very easy. I can recommend it highly !

The banner has been made with a My Favorite Things die-namics called "Banner Strip and Mini Alpha Set". This is great because not only do you get the die but you also get all the letters so you can stamp on it too !

The button, string and flowers are from my stash.

We look forward to seeing what you "cook up" for our challenge this week !! The DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration again this week. Please hop on over to the challenge blog to have a look.

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, it was so kind of you to pop by today !

Take care
