Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Get Crafty and Use Kraft !

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I have something really exciting to share with you !

On Monday, I travelled to London to meet .... wait for it ..... Heidi and Stephanie from Simon Says Stamp !  Yes, they flew all the way over from the USA to come and meet us and of course, enjoy the sights and sounds of London !

Not only did I meet up with Heidi and Stephanie but also Lorraine, Debby, Heather, Debby Hughes, Caryn, Mandy and Stephanie Wincott of Clearly Besotted Stamps !  Wow, what a line up !

We all went for lunch at Simpson's on The Strand and it was delish !  Their speciality is roast beef !

If you happened to watch Downton Abbey on Sunday, you will have seen Lady Mary also enjoying the roast beef in Simpson's !!

It was a magical day and certainly a day I will remember  !  All these ladies are just amazing inside and out and I just can't wait to meet them again very soon.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Colour Coordinates Challenge.

It's Wednesday and 

Yes, we have a new challenge over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge !

The theme this week is 

Get Crafty and Use Kraft !

The Design Team are this week showcasing Hero Arts Products.

For this week's challenge, as always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I heat embossed the tag from this SYS Forever cling set and then coloured the bird and branch with distress markers.

You can see a list of everything I used below !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing what you make !

Thank you for your visit and I hope you have a great day !
