Simon Says Red and Green Should be Seen ! :-)

Oh wow ! what a fabulous response to our appeal last week ;-) we had a grand total of 218 entries :-) !! Thank you girls :-)

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we have a lovely colour combo for you :-)


You can add other colours too,,, as long as there is a bit of red and green in there that's fine :-)

Does anyone know the saying Red and green should never be seen except on Fools ? Well hopefully we will be seeing lots of it this week :-)

This week TARA from Inking On The Edge has agreed to join us in the Designer Spotlight :-)She has made THE most gorgeous card :-) Please don't forget to leave her a nice comment :-)

I bought this lovely Tilda stamp and Magnolia tree last January,, daft time to buy Christmas stamps I know but at the time I was intending to make a christmas card a week !! Well !! This is her first inking ! :-)
I sprayed the background with my new copics air gun,,, oohh it is so much fun,, I still need to practise a bit but I do love the effect it gives ;-) I then stamped the tree and added green glitter. The Tilda was coloured with copics and 3D'd in front of the tree. I used a copics glitter pen to add more sparkle,,they are gorgeous pens, then I added the red crystal gem 'baubles'
The star was punched out and smothered in red glitter, the snowflake is a spellbinders die cut ,, smothered in glitter and the tree charm was hung on gold wire that I twirled around a skewer,,, oh yes ,, the paper is from a DCWV Glitter Christmas pack.

I followed Beckys fabulous sketch on the Sketch and Stash challenge
I am also entering this card in the One Stop Craft Challenge who are asking for Die Cuts.
The Spoonful of Sugar Challenge whose theme is 'Christmas'
The Creative Card Crew are asking for 'Sparkles',, well I couldn't make this more sparkly :-)

The saying I know is ...

"Red and Green should never be seen
Except upon an Irish Queen"

... but as it refers to clothing, cards are ok with this colour combination so no worries =)

Hope to get my act together and join in with some challenges this week.
