Simon Says ,,, PARTY !! :-)

Oh WOW !! what a fabulous response to the Merry Christmas Challenge :-) We were amazed at how many entries we had last week ,, Thank You all so much for taking the time to enter our challenge :-) We know how very busy you all are x x

Before I go any further we have some sad news, Anna has decided to step down from the DT, we are all very sorry to see her go but fully understand that she has many family and work commitments at the moment.I would like to wish her all the very best and hope she will pop back and visit us often x x

We are going to take a week off now so you have until 6th January to enter,,, loads of time :-)

This week the prize is EXTRA special ,,, it is all wrapped up waiting for Santa to bring it on Christmas morning ,,, so you will have to pop by the Simon Stamp Challenge blog on Christmas Day to see what is in it !!! :-)

Christmas is all about children and we love to encourage children to join in our challenges :-) We have a special designer in the spotlight:-) GEORGINA , she is only 9 years old and has made a lovely card for our challenge ;-) Thanks Georgina :-) x x Pop by her blog to see her card and don't forget to leave her a comment. She only just started a blog a couple of days ago and am sure she would appreciate lots of visitors :-)

For my card I used my new Happy Hoppers Girly Girl FANCY PANTS
, this one really makes me smile ,, soo funny ! :-) I coloured her with copics and added liquid pearls to her necklace ,,, Amy tells me pearls are 'IN' ,,, well she has to be trendy so pearls it is !! :-)

I followed Aud's fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-) Lovely skectch Aud ,, thank you x

The papers are My Minds Eye, I also used some gorgeous glitter card ,, so sparkly ! :-) The flower is prima ,, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. The brad is a papermania one. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Wise Owl Once Said set,, I just thought it was perfect for this image :-)

I am entering this into the Cupcake Crafts Challenge too whose theme is 'A Time to Celebrate' well she is going out celebrating eh !! :-)
I am also entering this ( almost forgot !!) to the By the Cute and Girly Challenge whose theme is lets Go to the Movies :-) My film title is ,,, 'Pretty Woman' :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Pop by the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see the wonderful creations from the DT :-) AND leave them a nice comment too ,,, :-)

I will be back tomorrow with a blog candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp :-) I will be linking it with the new ABC Christmas Challenge blog hop ,, so you will have to enter that too :-)

On behalf of the Simon Says Stamp team, Heidi ,the designers and the office staff I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :-)
