Simon Says ,,,,,, For a Child

Good Morning all !! We hope you are all fit and well and looking forward to the Easter Break :-)

Before moving on to the challenge we have some sad news to share, Kathy has decided to step down from the team :-( We would like to thank Kathy for her hard work and we wish her the very best of luck for the future, it has been a pleasure to work with you Kathy :-)

Thanks for all yourt fabulous entries to our Easter/Spring Colours Challenge and thanks for all your lovely comments too :-)

This week the theme is

FOR A CHILD

So any card or creation to be given to a child. We would also like to encourage you to think about poorly children and send a card to a child registered with Post Pals or Make a Child Smile. Please click on the links to read more about these charitable organisations. I know that the cards they receive are very welcome. Please think about them ,, not just today but throughout the year. Thank You xx


This week we are joined by the lovely and super talented Vicky aka Angeldrummer who has agreed to be in the Designer Spotlight :-) Dawny, Heather, Jo and Myself ( Lols) were lucky enough to meet Vicky at the NEC a few weeks ago ,,, isn't blogging terrific !! We get to make so many new friends :-)
Waves to Vicky :-)



For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge, I used this very cute Teddy and Me stamp by Gillian Roberts. I coloured the image with Copics, masked her and created the background using a Hero Arts cloud stamp to create masks, then sprayed using my Copic Air Brush. The papers are from my fave Basic Grey Hopscotch pad. I love these !!

The sentiment is from a Hero Arts Tags and Ticket stamp. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and used a Viva Opal Paper Pen on the body I then added a few Kaiser Crafts pearls. The ribbon was in my stash and I added a Hero Arts felt button and Basic Grey button too. of course I had to add Star Dust Stickles here and there too Smile




As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! See the NEWEST stuff on the All New Just In Page For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too !!! :-)
