Simon Says Challenge - Follow Dawny's Sketch !

Good morning !  How are we all today ?  

I've had a busy morning but one I have been looking forward to.  

I dropped the girls off at school and then had breakfast with the hubster before he went off to work, I bought a new saddle for my bike and then tested it out on a 3 mile ride !  3 miles is a long way for me, I can tell you !  I am desperately trying to lose some weight and I'm determined to exercise more.  I've lost 10lbs so far and already I am feeling the benefit and I'm raring to go !  The saddle seems to be working and I'm not as sore as I was the last time I went out on my old ropey one.  I asked the chap behind the counter in Halfords his advice on saddles as there were sooo many to choose from.  I did threaten him that if his advice turned out to be wrong I WOULD go back and show him the result !!!  Poor chap looked shocked !

Anyway, its that time again for another Simon Says Challenge.  This week our wonderful Dawny has given us a sketch to work with (I love Dawny's sketches !) and here it is :

The lucky winner will win a $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !!

The DT are this week showcasing Amerian Crafts and/or Martha Stewart products.  As usual, if you have any of these we would love to see them but it not, you can still play along with us.

The DP's I used are the gorgeous Echo Park "This and That" - oooh I've fallen in love again !

The stamps I used are Amercian Crafts Amy Tangerine Draft Clear Stamps Sketchbook and I've used them in different ways.  The little doily I heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The metal corner embellie is from my stash and I also heat embossed that with white embossing powder as it was originally bright silver.

I also used the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge Punch

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your take on Dawny's sketch.
