Simon Says ,,, Circle Friends :-)

Hi all :-) We have glorious weather here ,,, beautiful sunshine and a nice breeze,, gone are the gale force winds from yesterday :-) It’s almost sunbathing weather,, in fact I am wearing a shoestring strappy top !! :-)

As you know I was invited to be on the Simon Says Stamp Artist team ,,, still Happy Dancing !! We get to play with all the new exclusive stamp and die sets !! YAY !! :-)

Included in the Early Spring Release is a lovely Tri Circle die and I thought it would make a fab frame for a CAS card ,,, Less Is More Challenge here I come !! :-)


The gorgeous papers are a gift from the very lovely Debby xx Thanks xx :-) I will link all the products at the bottom of this post, just to say that the card has photographed quite peachy,, it is a lovely buttercup yellow IRL :-) I thought the circles framed the papers beautifully :-)


While I had all the stuff out I made another card :-) I heat embossed the beehive design with clear powder, it looks like real  honey !! :-) This one isn't admitted to the LIM Challenge. 


I think this is my fave one :-)


Thanks for looking :-)  I am lovin’ this new release !!  :-)

Great cards. Sunny here too but I'm in a fleecy top not a strappy one!! Better not tell my neighbour what your weather's like now he's back home!!
