Simon Says PUNCH IT :-)

We had a fantastic response to our Shabby Chic Challenge :-) I must say the high turn out really surprised us ,, we thought we were giving you quite a difficult one ,,, I thought it was difficult and almost threw a sickie lol :-) BUT ,, it seems you loved all the lace and distressing :-)

Also as most of you know we are looking for TWO designers to join our Simon Says Stamp Challenge team :-) If you are interested you have until next Tuesday evening to enter the call :-) Good Luck to everyone :-) We know this is going to be a difficult decision ,,, the entries so far have been amazing and we know that MANY will be disappointed ,, but Heidi has put her foot down and said we can't ask everyone otherwise she would go bankrupt !!! :-)

Anyways ,,,,, on to the challenge this week ,,, we thought you could get all your aggressions out and start PUNCHING :-) Yes you have to use at least one punched item on your card ,,, or a corner punch ,,, :-)

We have the lovely and very talented Sue AKA Scoopystuff joining us in the Designer Spotlight this week :-) If you haven't visited her blog you should ,, not only are her cards fabulous ,, but she is so funny too and you are sure to leave her blog with a smile on your face :-)

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-) I used my new lovely Happy Hoppers stamp this one is called Recipe for Friendship :-) very cute eh :-)
I coloured the image with copics and used crackle glaze on the bowl.

I used various punches :-) I used my lovely Martha Stewart border punch, it is actually a round the page one ,, :-) a leaf punch and for the sentiment I used SU oval and scalloped punches

The papers are Basic Grey and the flowers are Prima
which were sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and stckles for added sparkle :-) I also used a few Robins Nest Dew Drops :-)

I am also entering this card into the following challenges :

the Colour Create Challenge ,,,,,,,Kraft , Blue . White

Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge ,,,,,, Layers

Creative Card Crew ,,,, PUNCHES ;-) ha ha

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Sue and the DT have made some fabulous cards for you to see so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see them and don t forget to leave them a nice comment on their personal blogs too :-)

I will be back soon to announce my fortnightly candy, in the meantime ,, please go and turn off the word verification on your blog if it is turned on !!!! :-) I will keep pestering you all you know !!! :-) I am on a mission to rid blogland of it :-)

Oh so lovely, Lols! I could pick this card up and hug it, it's so cute. I have a soft spot for Happy Hoppers and Gruffies even though I know they are much smaller lines than House Mouse...I love the layering and touches of sparkles..

Thanks so much for all you do and being a wonderful addition to the Simon Says Stamp team!
