Simon Says ,,,, ANYTHING GOES !! :-)

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Use an Arrow Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

I was unsure about what to make for this challenge,, maybe a tag ?? but then I popped over to the Tim Holtz Blog for inspiration and GUESS WHAT !! He has a challenge asking us to make flowers using his Tattered Florals Die !!  YAY !!


Tim has a fab tutorial using his new Distress Paint’s,,, which I don’t have yet ,, he also used linen and burlap fabrics ,,, don’t have those either ,, so I had to improvise but I am thrilled with how this turned out and I WILL wear it :-)

I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post.


I attached the flower to a chain but it is removable so I can attach it to a bag, jacket,,, anything really ! :-)  doesn’t it look FAB on my autographed Tim Holtz bag !! a treasured possession :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely designer in the spotlight, Sem, and the DT have made some gorgeous creations so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

Hi Lorraine - this is a simply stunning creation, and it looks just at home on a chain as it does dangling from your bag! Thank you for sharing your beautiful project at Incy Wincy Designs this week in our "Anything But A Card" challenge.
