Simon Says Stamp Monday 'Pets Corner' Challenge










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

This week we are challenging you to think about our 4 legged or feathered friends.

Pets Corner 

With so many animal themed products available we are looking forward to seeing what you use on your project!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
This is Autumn's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight, thanks so much for joining us Autumn, you have been a brilliant guest and it has been awesome to work with you :-) XXX 


I used a super cute Indigo Blu Duke's Gang Cling Stamp Set and Tim Holtz Crazy Things Stamp and Die Set to make a fun birthday card. 

I have a dog and 7 cats, all rescued strays, plus one who belongs to a neighbour but thinks he lives with us ;-)
 I used them as the inspiration for my card ;-)

I made this for my brother's birthday :-)


I have had this stamp set a while and have only inked it up once, shame on me, but I do love it and promise to give it an airing more often from now on ;-)

For the background I used Tumbled Glass Ink and then used an Indigo Blu Tasty Textures stamp, inked with Shadow Grey Archival ink


and I finished the inside too ;-)


Thanks for looking!

some of my gang  ;-)


p.s, the jigsaw box is an attempt to keep the cats off the chairs ;-)

and our lovely Jessie ;-)

Oh my! You really own so many cats? I am impressed. Cats are never enough, right? I love this purrrrfect critters so much. The picture is amazing! The card as well :-) I love the mix of background papers. The red and blue look stunning onto the light kraft. Hugs, Marzena

Hi Lols, just wanted to thank you for helping me with my link. I had to get my lovely hubby to figure out what was going on and it's something to do with chrome, me and my laptop but we don't know what yet. We have experimented tonight and found that I can enter with Edge when I next create something for the challenge. Your help is greatly appreciated huni xx
