Simon Says 'Charming !! ' :-)

Oohh it seems that more of you liked the sparkle than the love challenge !! Not a very romantic lot then I take it ha ha ha :-) Lets hope you like our 'Charming Challenge more :-) we would like to see charms on your creations ,, not necessarily bought ones ,, we would love to see some hand made ones too :-)

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we have the FABULOUS Wendy Vecchi joining us in the Designer Spotlight :-) I am sure that most of you will know that Wendy designs her own range of stamps and is a top designer for Maya Road,tim holtz,idea-ology and Ranger !! :-) We are so lucky that she agreed to join us ! Pop over to the challenge blog to see what she made :-)

For my card I used the lovely EDWIN SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER ( I only just realised the name of the stamp when I went for this link ! :-) ) I bought this one in Holland at the craft fair but it will be in the Simon Says Stamp Store very soon :-) I coloured him with copics in traditional Santa colours ,,,, not the ones invented by Pepsi Cola !! and sat him on a Whiff Of Joy Sledge :-)
The papers are also Magnolia ones ,,, I was almost crying cutting into these and am now kicking myself for not buying loads more !! The snowflake charm and ribbon are from my stash. I also used a couple of hero arts snowflake brads.

The snowflakes are a mixture of puncehes and die cuts. I added loads of Ranger stickles EVERYWHERE :-) I love the glitter card too ,, that was from my local Binky Crafts store ,,, isn't it fab ! :-) The frame was made using a Nellie Sneddon multi frame :-)

I am entering this into the Just Magnolia Challenge, Martine has made a fabulous sketch for us to follow and unfortunately she is now stepping down from the DT ,, along with Rach and Kim :-( I will be sorry to see them go but am looking forward to seeing what the new DT girls Jacque, Sheila and Jane will create :-)
I am also entering this into the Quixotic Challenge ,,, who also have charms as their theme :-) that was lucky ! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Also pop over to Wendy's blog and leave her some love too ,,, and of course the DT girls who have worked so hard :-)

I have pre scheduled this post as I am Christmas shopping in Malta today ,,, I will be back later tonight to do the candy draw and post the next one :-) So check back later ,,,, in the meantime ,,, go and create !! Happy Crafting ! :-)

I'll need to look into Nellie Sneddon as I've seen a few nice bits on cards with her bits and bobs. I'm assuming the dies will work with me cuttlebug
