Simon Says Challenge - Use Newspaper !

Wow, thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Anything Goes challenge last week. We had 1121 entries altogether, the most we have ever had so thank you. As a special thank you Heidi gave away two $50 shopping sprees to check the blog to see if you are a lucky winner !

This week we welcome two new DT members to the family so please hop over to the challenge blog and give them a warm welcome !

Our challenge this week is to use NEWSPAPER. It can be the real mccoy, newsprint designer paper, a stamped image or even something that you find inside a newspaper. The rest of the DT have made some amazing cards for your inspiration.

The lucky winner will of course win that super duper $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store ! Thank's again Heidi for being so generous.

The DP's I used are Fancy Pants "It's The Little Things" and these have all been machine stitched. I also used real newspaper too !

The images of course by Magnolia and we have Love News Tilda and the Postbag with Love Letters stamps. These have been coloured with a mixture of Copics and ProMarkers.

The sentiment is from a MFT clear stamp and die-namics set called "Just My Type".

We hope you can join us again this week and we can't wait to see all your entries !

I am entering my card for the following challenges :

Craft Your Passion - Use Text

Hooked on Crafts - With Love

Magnolia Down Under - Make a Scene (could be pushing my luck with this one ?!)

Thank you for your visit and have a great day !
