Simon Says 'This Is the Life' Blog Hop


Oh WOW  have you seen any of the sneaky peeks of the 'This Is Your Life' release on Instagram and Facebook ?? I don't know about you but I am so looking forward to hopping around the fabulous list of designers blogs and  seeing the whole release !! I know my shopping basket will be overflowing by the end of it :-)

Thank You Heidi and Steph for inviting me to take part in this hop, it is always my pleasure and a huge thrill to be asked to join in,, to be on the same line up with so many super designers is FAB ,, if a little bit nerve wrackin' lol,, I don't want to show myself up :-)

You should have arrived here from the lovely and super talented Barb Engler's Blog, if not then you will need to start at the Simon Says Stamp Blog ,,, you wouldn't want to miss anyone :-) 

I was asked to showcase the Cocktail Hour Stamp and  Die set, Heidi and Steph know me well ,,,,, lol :-) This is right up my street :-)

First Up ,,, shall we share a bottle of red ? ,,, 'Wine Not' !


I made the background using a Medium Dots Stencil and some Gold Shimmer Spritz , sprayed and splattered 


and for the inside ,,,,


Next Up ,,, One of my fave refreshing summer drinks,,,, Gin and Tonic :-)


I used the Adult Beverages Sayings set and new Waves Stencil to make the backgrounds.


and for the inside ...


and now it's time for a Martini Cocktail :-)


don't mind if I do ! :-) 

I used a Simon's Gradated Blocks Stencil and a Surf Blue Ink Pad for the backround on this one


and I finished the inside for this one too ,,



And now for some yummy candy !! Simon Says Stamp have very generously given us ALL a fabulous pack of 12 colours of cardstock AND 2 ink pads to give away !! WOO HOO :-)

Just leave a comment and you will be entered into the draw ! GOOD LUCK :-)

From here you need to hop along to the lovely and super talented Jo Nevill's Blog
Happy Hopping :-)






Hope you all have a great weekend :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
