Simon Says ,,,,,,, You Gotta Have Friends

We really enjoyed last weeks Pirate Challenge and it was brill to see so many of you joining in and getting your own pirate name too :-) Very funny :-)


Before moving on to this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge I wonder how many of you noticed the new mug shots on the sidebar :-) We are being joined by 3 new FANTASTIC designers

Marcea (who has been our Guest DT for the last month)

Heather (Rica) and

Christine

Welcome to our very FRIENDLY team !! :-)

This week's challenge is ; YOU GOTTA HAVE FRIENDS :-)
It is definitely no fun being Billy no mates so now is the time to make a card or a girft for a friend and show them how much you care :-)

The fabulous prize is a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !



The Design Team this week are showcasing Penny Johnson stamps. You can of course buy the full range of Penny Johnson stamps from the Simon Says Stamp Store ! If you have any of Penny Johnson's stamps we would love to see them but you can use any stamp at all for this challenge.



For my card I used the gorgeous ner Bobby and Me stamp
from the Simon Says Stamp Store It is currently out of stock but is expected back in any day now :-) I think the DT bought them all !! :-)
I followed Claudia's fab sketch on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Wild Honey Distress ink The papers are from the new Basic Grey Max and Whiskers paper pad. The decorative border was made using my new EK Success punch, I added a button and a lovely dog tag charm the bone shaped button was a gift from teamie Jo :-) x x The 'Friends' foam letters were in my drawer for years and have no idea where they came from.



I am entering this into the Cute Card Thursday Challenge :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I have a blog candy at the top of my blog sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Store if you would like to have a look :-)
