Simon Says ,,,,, April Showers and/or Spring Flowers :-)

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for our 4th Birthday Challenge and Hop and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

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

so any creations with rain and or flowers ! :-)

We are showcasing Hero Arts  this week, you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them if you have any of our products :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Now you may have noticed that I have a bit of a ‘thing’ for bike images ,, unfortunately this hasn't translated to getting the real thing out of the garage ,,, but you never know ,,, :-)

Hello Spring !! 
I used a Hero Arts On The Go Bike, stamp and die set and Mix Notecards Midnight


I made the banner using the stamps and die in the set, stamping onto canvas and sewing on a machine. The tulips are cut from a Meadow Rue die, and the grass is a Martha Stewart icicle punch that is now discontinued. I swiped the bricks with a versamark ink pad and embossed with clear to make it look like a white gloss painted wall :-)

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


Thanks for looking :-) Our fabulous GD Laura S and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
