Simon Says Challenge !

What a miserable morning we have here. Such a shame for the children on holiday and for their parents too who have to keep breaking up their fights ! My two have been in the ring more than once this morning and its only 10am ! Still, this afternoon will keep them occupied. We are going bowling in Bristol with some friends of ours and their two children and then out for a scrummy tea !

I am hoping I can stay awake ! I went to the cinema last night with some girlfriends to see Angels and Demons and they had booked a 9pm showing (I'm usually ready for bed by then) ! We didn't leave the cinema until 11.30pm !! I must say, it was a fantastic film, full of twists and turns and of course, Tom Hanks was in it so he kept me awake !!

This week on the Simon Says Challenge Blog ....

Simon Says ..... ANIMALS !

"This week, the theme is ANIMALS ! You know how we all love our animals so this shouldn't be a difficult challenge for you. Don't forget, you can use any image you like it does not have to be a Simon Says Stamp image (although if you did, we would love to see what you create with the amazing Simon Says Exclusive Stamps !!)".

Here is my card

The base card is a Papermania scalloped card.

The patterned paper is The Paper Company Paws and Claws Doggy Argyle. They also do one for cats which is lovely too.

The images are Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps Cats and Dogs are Best Friends I have coloured the images with Koh-i-noor and Derwent Coloursoft pencils and sansodor (wooo, my first time !!).

The ribbon and buttons are from my stash.

I also decorated the inside with the last piece of paper I had left from this sheet.

I know we are all having terrible, terrible problems with Mr Linky at the moment but don't let that put you off having a go at our challenge. There are instructions on the blog telling you how to enter your creation !

Yet again Heidi has very generously offered a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store for the winner of the challenge so its worth having a go, isn't it ? I have just spotted the most fantastic, enormous sturdy tube of Prima flowers which has just arrived in store and apparently someone has counted them all and there were over 700 all for the fantastic price of $13.99 (£8.75) so you could buy these and still buy a stamp or two with the change !!!! Worth having a go ?!!!

We look forward to seeing your little cuties very soon.
