Simon Says Challenge - A Sketch !

What a bright and beautiful day we have today ! I'm running late with my post today as this is the second time I have typed it all out as it just doesn't seem to be working for me today so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it is second time lucky !!

Before I tell you about the new challenge over at Simon Says Challenge, I have a couple of other things to tell you about.

I am still begging for votes for my card over at La-La Land Crafts Challenge !

You can see my card HERE and there is a link so you can leave a comment to vote for me - pretty please !! There are also details at the top of my sidebar - I am desperate as you can tell !!! My card is number 17 so I would love it if you could comment/vote for ~17 !!

Thank you so much to everyone who has so far voted - I am so grateful to you x

The second piece of news is very exciting :

We need you to cancel all plans next week ! We need you to join us on a HUGE STAMP-TEMBER BLOG HOP AND TREASURE HUNT !

For the second year in a row the Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays. Be sure to come back on August 31st, (MN Ohio Time, 6 pm CET ) to start the hop. It will run through to September 5th. Simon Says Stamp is offering a FANTASTIC GRAND PRIZE , and there will be other opportunities to win some hidden treasure too ! So make a note in your diaries and make sure you are here to join in the FUN !! :-)

This week Dawny has made us a fabulous sketch to follow, thanks Dawny xx You may rotate/flip the sketch as you like but the original sketch must be 'there' to see :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The DP's I have used are October Afternoon "The Thrift Shop"

The image and sentiment are a gorgeous stamp set from Fawn Lawn called "Sew Lovely". I have paper pieced the dress.

The flowers are some Prima flowers I found in my stash.

I am also entering the following challenges :

Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes

Crafty Ann's - Scallops and/or fancy edge

Paper Playtime - Anything Goes

Deep Ocean - Light Blue

Sketchy Colours - Shades of Blue
