Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is
Let It Snow 

I uploaded a snippet onto instagram yesterday and lots of people guessed right haha, I am hoping that some of you have already made a head start on your creations!! ;-)

I am aways scrambling to make last minute Christmas gift tags and this year I am determined to be better organised. This fabulous Winter Side-Order Thinlits Die and Embossing Folder Set from Tim Holtz is perfect for making those essential tags, this set makes life so much easier!! Thanks Tim! :-) 


I splattered a Tim Holtz die cut tag with Distress Resist Spray and when it was dry I blended Spiced Marmalade and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Inks over the top. I used some scraps of Tim Holtz Paper for the mittens and the hat, added a sprinkling of glitter to the pom pom and snowflakes and a little to the embossed snowdrift too. I love how this has turned out, cute don't ya think! :-)

Penny Black Cheers!

Hi everyone :-) I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

I am thinking of all of those affected by the horrific fires in California, my heart is with you all and hope you are all safe XXX ❤️


I made a couple of cards using a Penny Black Cheers Cling Stamp, I have used this stamp quite often and I have to say, it is one of my all time faves, perfect for so many family and friends ;-)


I coloured with Copic Markers and added a little shading with Prismacolor Pencils. I highlighted the design by diecutting the Birch Press Stitched Heart, I adhered several layers to make it pop up and I love the extra interest and depth this gives the design. 




and I finished the inside using a Simon's Exclusive Painted Happy Birthday Die 


Next up is a similar card made for my SIL's 50th Birthday!




and I finished the inside
