We are sponsored this week by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Superstore and we have a gorgeous limited edition Greeting Farm stamp to give away to one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I used the lovely sketch on the Sweet Stampin Challenge I used my new Taking Notes House Mouse stamp from Simon Says Stamp I coloured the image with copics and added Tea Dye distress inks around the edges. the papers are from my lovely new Vintage Shabby Tim Holtz paper pack, the brown card is Chocolate Chip from SU and I also used SU Oval punches. The word stick is a tim Holtz ideology charm. The fancy border was made with TH sizzix border die cut :-) I love all his productes but the new stuff is gorgeous ! Heidi has it all in stock at Simon Says Stamp :-)
