Simon Says Challenge

Good morning ! You will be pleased to know I am feeling more cheerful today so you can speak to me without me biting off your head !!! I did manage to have a power nap along to CBBC/CBeebies and I think I even managed a little snore which woke me up !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough of my sleeping habits, you want to know about this week's challenge. Well, this week our challenge to you is "Get Well Soon".

I have actually made my card for a very dear fellow crafter and blogger Riet who is very poorly at the moment. Many, many of you would have come across Riet as not only is she a fantastic crafter but I think she must leave a comment on every crafter's blog in the Universe ! Get well soon Riet, we miss you and your wonderful cards.

We have a very special girl who will be joining us in our Designer Spotlight, her name is HANNA , she is only 13 years old and makes the most amazing creations, if you haven't visited her blog you are in for a treat. Thanks for agreeing to join us Hanna :-) x x

As usual Heidi is offering a shopping spree to her store ,, and she will pay shipping too :-)

The DP's are My Minds Eye "Wild Asparagus".

The image is a Stampavie stamp by Helz Cuppleditch and this one is called "Teddy say it with flowers". This gorgeous little bear has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The flowers I made using different size EK Success retro flower punches and I inked the edges. The centres are sparkly stamens I bought from Ally Pally. I think they look so pretty in real life.

The sentiment is from a Clare Curd clear stamp sentiment set and the banner has been cut with a Sizzix die.

Thank you for visiting me and for any comments you may leave - I really do appreciate them.

Blog Candy - I apologise for my lack of blog candy so far this fortnight. Heidi and Terre have been away for the last week on a crafting cruise with non other than Mr Holtz himself (lucky girls) and so "Simon" has been two staff down and they are rushed off their feet. As soon as they are able to give me a photo, I will post the next candy so please keep checking back. Thank you for your patience.

Hope you all have a great day. I'm off out to a sponsored trundle at pre-school at lunchtime. It will be so much fun watching the 2-4 year old pushing pushchairs, bikes, scooters and anything else they can trundle with around an obstacle course !!!

Hugs to all,

Little Miss Sunshine !!!!!
