Simon Says ,,, Thinking Of You


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

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


It is 100 years since the start of the First World War and this year many countries are hosting special events to commemorate this milestone. Remembrance Day is on the 11th November and we are dedicating this challenge to all those that have died in the line of duty.

We Will Remember Them.

We are welcoming Vera Yates aka Ling's Design Studio, into the Designer Spotlight this week. Vera is a super talented designer and if you haven't visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat.

Vera & Jennifer McGuire team up again for the 5th year of Caring Hearts Card Drive. The goal of this card drive is to bring joy to those that live in nursing homes through our handmade cards. Simon Says Stamp is one of the sponsors for this event and there are lots of prizes to be won so please consider sending in your cards.
You can find all the details for the card drive HERE

I used Optimist 6x6 Paper Pack,  Buttons and Sun Kiss Charme Roses

I love this Stitched Party Banner Die from Lawn Fawn, perfect for a fun shaped card. I then die cut lots of circles from the patterned papers, randomly stamped some various sized dots before embellishing with bling :-) 

 I love how this has turned out, even if I do say so myself. This paper pack is one of my all time faves, the designs in it are gorgeous and I will need to get me another pack :-)

Barbara Derksen said...


What do I love about your card?


You are like my Sister, you can make a statement with lots of white space and just a smattering of "jewelry" to embellish. It takes talent and a good sense of design.


Teresa Kline said...

sparkle & shine *~*
