Simon Says,,,, Hot Chocolate Challenge :-)

We had some lovely entries to our Party Challenge over the Christmas holidays :-) Thank you to everyone who linked a creation :-) We know how busy you all were and hope you all had a wonderful Christmas :-)

Onto this weeks challenge :-)

Our theme for this week is

With the big freeze all over Europe and freezing weather on the other side of the pond too ,,, a lovely warming hot chocolate is just what we all need eh !! :-) You can interpret this theme as you like :-) You could use hot chocolaty images or brown and pink colour combo :-) The choice is yours :-)

This week Heidi is giving away a lovely $25 shopping spree to her FANTASTIC SIMON SAYS STAMP SUPERSTORE, Heidi will also pay for the shipping too :-)

This week we have a lovely designer joining us in the Designer Spotlight :-) JOEY from JOEY'S STUFF has agreed to join us :-) Thanks Joey :-) x x

For my card I used a lovely HM stamp ,,,Joey and a few of the DT have used HM too so a good promotion for them this week :-)
The one I used is called CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES It is a really big stamp so the card is a very simple layout :-)

I decided to go for Chocolate and Hot Pink ;-)
I colourd the image with copics and added various stickles for sparkle ,,, the white frosty is distress picket fence ,, I also used distress rock candy and diamond stickles too :-) The papers are Basic Grey though I am not sure which pad as the cover fell off ! :-)

The ribbons were from my stash and I think the sentiment is a Papermania one ,, :-)

I will giving away a fabulous house Mouse Stamp of YOUR CHOICE ! as my fortnightly candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp :-) You can see details of how to enter at the top of my blog :-)

The Joey and the DT have made some fabulous creations for you to see so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see them and please don't forget to leave a comment :-)

EDITED TO ADD :-) I didn't realise earlier but the Quixotic Challenge has the same theme ,, Hot Chocolate ,, and we posted the challenge on the same day so I am linking my card to their challenge too :-) Hope thats OK with the DT ,,, I know I am a couple of days late ,,,, :-(

ABC 'L' for Layering,,,,,, My 1st DT card !! :-)

You know how sometimes ,,, one thing leads to another,,, well a couple of weeks ago Samantha asked me if I would like to join them in a Blog Hop to launch the new ABC Christmas Challenge blog :-) That was fun !! ,, I LOVE blog hops you get to visit lots of blogs that maybe you would miss :-) I was also asked to join in as a GD for the first challenge ,, A for Angels ,,, which I hope you will all enter !!!!! :-)

Well ,,,, then Samantha asked me to join the DT for both the ABC Challenge and the ABC Christmas Challenge blogs :-) How fantastic is that !!! AND Cathy has agreed to rejoin the DT too !! Brilliant ,, I know Cathy from the Sketch and Stash DT too so it will be nice to work with her on all 3 DT's !! :-) YAY ,,,, :-) So a big wave to all the girls on the DT ,, Fiona,Helen,Jan,Jane Jennifer, Samantha, Vicky and Cathy :-)

So onto my first card as a DT on the ABC Challenge :-) This week the theme is


For my card I used a lovely Big Sister stamp from Sugar Nellie :-) I loved this image as soon as I saw it on and just HAD to get it ! I think the sentiment is just PERFECT with it too lol :-) I can just imagine a toddler 'big' sister saying that !! :-) It also reminds me of the episode of Only Foold and Horses when Del Boy has a baby ,,, have you all seen that one ,,, sooo funny :-)

The papers are from my lovely Wild Rose Studio Spring Papers CD ,,, I love the papers on this ,,, they print so nicely :-) I added some dew drops and stickles for sparkle. The lovely baby ribbon was from my local habberdashery :-)
