Simon Says Challenge 3 # Recipe






I am actually on holiday in the UK at the moment and am hoping that Mr Bloggy posts this for me !! I am sorry that I won't be visiting your blogs for the next few days but will try to catch up when I get home next week x x

The theme this week on the Simon Says Challenge is a recipe 3 buttons, 2 papers and 1 ribbon :-) You can also use plain card for layering etc :-)
I decided to make a baby card using my new House Mouse Cozy Shoe stamp and papers from the Basic Grey porcelain collection which I just bought from Simon Says Stamp store I coloured the image with copics, I do love them !! I used stickles on all the dots to glitter it up a little bit :-)
The buttons are clear ones from Stamping up which I coloured with my new alcohol inks and glimmered with perfect pearls, I then just threaded a little bit of brown paper through them. The sentiment is also from Stamping Up, the ribbon is from my messy drawer ( I must tidy that up !! ) :-)

I also made a gift box using a new template which I bought from The Cutting Cafe I actually bought this by mistake !! I actually wanted the stationary set, which I bought as well !! but I like them both and am happy I got them, especially as it was on DH credit card :-)

You have plenty of time to enter the challenge it runs for 2 weeks so you have no excuse :-) Also Heidi has very generously offered a $25 shopping spree to the Simon Says Stamp store for the lucky winner drawn at random :-)

The Design Team have made some fabulous creations for you to see so don't forget to pop by and see them all :-)You can see them on the Simon Says Challenge blog then visit their blog via the links to leave a comment :-)
