Simon Says Photo Inspiration Challenge :-)

Thanks to everyone for entering the Simon Says Stamp Check it Out Challenge :-) We had loads of fabulous entries ! :-)

This week we thought that seeing as we have all been basking in sunshine it was time for a yummy cocktail ,,, non alcoholic of course !! :-)



Now ,, doesn't that look cool and refreshing ,,, this is known in my home as a Blue Lagoon ,, named after a gorgeous bay on the Maltese sister island of Comino and the sea really is that colour !

Would you like the recipe ?
1 tot Blue Curacau
1 tot Vodka
1 tot Gin
1 tot Cointreau

mix with ice and top up with bitter lemon :-) ,,,, OK ,, so it does have a little alcohol in it !! :-)

and this is a photo of the Blue Lagoon ,,, lovely eh !! :-)



As usual our lovely Boss Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a trolley dash around her fabulous Simon Says Stamp store to the value of $25 !! with so many fab items arriving almost daily there is just soo much to choose from ! :-)



For my card I went right out of my comfort zone and made a rectangular card !



The image is a lovely Penny Black Chicky Night I coloured the image with copics and added stickles here and there :-) The paper is Basic Grey and the sentiments are from Simon Says Stamp Exclusives sets :-) The ribbbon and charm are also from Simon Says Stamp the gems are kaiser Craft and the fancy border is a Tim Holtz Scrollwork die.





The DT have made some fabulous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to see it !! :-)

Seriously, if I had been drinking something I would have spit it out laughing at the image! It is so stinking cute! The one in the halter top is a scream. What a great card you made with it. Love it! Best, Curt

Lorraine! I don't know which blue lagoon I love best -- but I know which one I can enjoy this afternoon! Thanks for the idea. Your chick card is so Chic (wanted to play off the word Chick! -- oh, well) -- this is a perfectly delightful card -- great background, great foreground, great extras!
