Simon Says Challenge - Sporty and/or Patriotic

Simon Says Stamp
Good morning ! After saying it looked like it was going to be a super day yesterday, it ended up raining for most of it ! Today it can't make up its mind what it is going to do so I've loaded up the washing line anyway ! In any event, we had a lovely day off yesterday and the girls went back to school this morning :( Still, only 3 more weeks left to go and then they will be off until September. I can't believe how quickly this year has flown by already ! 

Today is Wednesday and its time again for another challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !

Papertake Weekly - Dawny's Sketch

Good morning ! Look's like we are in for another cracker of a day today ! 

The girls and I had a lovely day yesterday spent in the park with a picnic. I had forgotten that the park we went to had a paddling pool there and I was amazed to see that the Council have spent some money on it and repaired it and painted it. It looks lovely. The girls had a splashing good time in it ! Not sure what we are up to yet, will take it as it comes today. Back to school tomorrow :(

Now to tell you about this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge.

Dawny has given us another one of her super duper sketches to follow !

 

This week we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp !


The image I used is by Saturated Canary and is called "Salute Her".  She has been coloured with Copics.

The fancy corner is a die by Cheery Lynn Designs.  

You can see links to all the other products I used at the bottom of this post.

I am entering my card into the following challenges :

Bunny Zoe Crafts - Girls, Girls, Girls

Corrosive Challenge - Summertime Girls

Love to Create - Anything Goes

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

Thank you for your visit and have a great Tuesday !

Simon Says Challenge - Anything But a Card

Simon Says Stamp
What a beautiful day ! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and its just gorgeous out there !

It is that time of week again for another challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !

Before I tell you about this week's challenge we would like to welcome our new Design Team members who are also joining us for this challenge !  You can see their stunning creations on the Simon Says Challenge Blog.

So, this week's theme is ANYTHING BUT A CARD !  The Design Team are this week featuring Maya Road and Graphic 45 products.  As always, if you have any of these products we would love to see you use them but if not, you can still join in the fun !!
As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!






This little tin started out life as a travel sweet tin which I found in my stash of things for altering.

I covered it with the DP and then heat embossed the edge of the lid with white embossing powder but wasn't too worried about evenly covering it to give it that "aged" look.  I do like this effect as the embossing powder looks like enamel.

The buttons I made myself !  I bought some self covering buttons and some material and this little plastic gadget which hey presto ! presses the button, material and button back together.

You can see links to the rest of the embellies I used below.

Edited to say :  Sorry, I forgot to mention what I used on the dress form !  I applied some gold gilding flakes to it !  I could not find any gilding flakes in the Simon Says Stamp Store but I did find some gold leaf which I would imagine is nearly the same thing.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your creations.  Should you need some inspiration the rest of the DT have made some awesome creations for you again this week !



Now, before I love you and leave you I just need to tell you about a blog hop that is taking place to celebrate the launch of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies !  The hop starts today over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog so hop on over and join in the fun.  There are also lots of fabulous prizes on offer !

Papertake Weekly - Bingo !

Hello ! It's that time again for another challenge over at Papertake Weekly ! 

This week we are playing a game of Bingo !

So, eyes down and here is your bingo card !

 

I decided to have a go and make a CAS card for this challenge - why do they always take longer than the cards you usually make ?!!

I love all the new photographic stamps and embellies that are out at the moment.  Just perfect for scrapbooks and of course, cards !

I followed the line ribbon (twine), die cut and button

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week.  

We are being sponsored by The Ribbon Girl !

Thank you for visiting and have a great day !
