Simon Says Challenge 6 # Animals

We have a very cute theme for you this week on the Simon Says Challenge

Simon Says Animals :-)

This is a very nice and easy one.

I really enjoy coming to see all your wonderful creations, it's alot of fun !! :-) When you enter try to go see some, if not all, of the other entries :-) !!!
Also Heidi at Simon Says Stamp gives a $25 shopping voucher with every challenge !! Isn't that a fab prize !! :-)

I made this card using a fabulous set of Simon Says Clear Stamps DEER WITH FOREST FAMILY Exclusive Set, I love this set, the images are just sooo cute :-) Check out the
Simon Says Stamp store for these and more fabby things :-))

The papers I used are from Diane's Daughter's Rustic Gems collection, the plastic branch is from a pack of craft buttons. I also used a couple of sketeton leaves and a die cut leaf with the sentiment stamped onto it. The sentiment is from the Simon Says Clear Stamps SENDING SUNSHINE Exclusive Set.

The ribbon is by Karen Foster, also from the Simon Says Stamp store,it has a lovely leaf print on it, perfect for this card I thought !! :-)

I made this card following the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge, they have some fabulous DT cards !! Gorgeous !! :-)

Thanks for looking. The Design team have made some wonderful creations for you to see and also as an added bonus we have a 'Designer Spotlight' introducing Jay Jay :-)

Jay Jay is on the Simon Says Stamp Brand DT, ( I am too !! yay !! :-)) This DT works with the Simon Says exclusive sets.

Jay Jay is a fabulous designer , you should go and see her fabulous blog :-) It's wonderful, but many of you will already know that !! :-)

Thanks for looking, I really appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Happy Crafting :-) Am really looking forward to seeing your creations for this weeks challenge :-)

Hi Lorraine - this is so adorable, what a cute set of stamps, I feel a spend coming on. Love your take on the sketch and the compostion is just brilliant!!
Now a question who are the backing papers you've used by? My SIL gave me some but they have no name on them. I love them so much I'm still stroking them after 2 years - how sad is that?
