Good morning ! I am so sorry for being such a bad blogger, all self inflicted unfortunately. Ski had her school fete on Saturday and I got terribly sun burnt so bad in fact I ended up having sun stoke and the most painful neck and arms I have ever experienced in my life. I smothered the girls from head to foot in sun lotion but put it back in the bag when it was my turn, I never gave myself a thought. I will from now on though, I shall remember this for a very long time !
Well this week on Simon Says Challenge we are saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Simon Says Stamp ! Yes, Simon Says Stamp is celebrating its first birthday ! So for this challenge we want you to be creative with all things birthday and join us in our celebrations.
We will also be celebrating with a blog hop which will start at the Simon Says Challenge blog and will end at Simon Says Stamp where you will be able to pick up some fantastic prizes along the way ! The blog hop will start on 21st June at 1400 GMT and will end on 24th June. More details to follow later !
Again, Heidi has very generously given a $25 shopping spree to the winner of our birthday challenge.
The pattered paper is unfortunately unknown. I bought it when I first started cardmaking from Hobbycraft and this is the first time I have opened the packet !
The white/pink card is Whitewash Core'dinations which I ran through my birthday folder on the Cuttlebug and then sanded. The purple matting card is also Core'dinations.
The image is a Happy Hoppers, House Mouse stamp called "Balloon Journey" which is available to buy from Simon Says Stamp. This little cutie has been coloured with ProMarker and Prismacolor marker pens. The background has been inked with broken china distress ink.
The sentiment is from a fantastic set from Simon Says Stamp called "Simply The Best" sentiments. The little tag attached to the balloons is also from the same set. I thought it added a nice touch ! You can see it better in the photo below.
The blue tule is a pressie from my very lovely friend Martine ! Thank's darlin !
We also have another "Designer in the Spotlight" for you and this week it is the very talented Kendra who has joined us.
We look forward to seeing all your fantastic entries. The DT's creations are amazing again this week and it would be lovely if you could hop over and visit them and leave them a nice comment as the nice comments always mean so much.
See you back here tomorrow for Colour Create but until then, keep slapping on the sun cream !
Hugs to all !
