Simon Says Stamp Challenge on Papercrafts Planet :-) ,,, Summer Time AND a card for Bella :-)

Chris ( Simon Says Stamp DT girlie)is working very hard over on the Papercraft Planet site to drum up entries ,, so I thought I would give her a hand and hopefully some of my lovely followers will join in too :-)

the theme is a nice easy one and there are several with the same theme so you can combine !! :-)


before you go any further I suggest you wear sunglasses lol :-)

I made this card for Bella, I am sure most, if not all of you will have heard about Bella's nasty virus that has left here severely physically disabled. Erin and Denise have been working really hard to organise a series of blog hops to send cards, and hopefully a few donations to her. I love the way blogland pulls together to support each other and our friends in time of need ,,, you really are a fantastic bunch of people :-) Now ,, before I get too soppy i'll tell you about this card :-) If you would like to join in with the 4th and final week of the hop click here

The images I used are all from Simon Says Stamp Exclusives sets. I wanted to send Bella a nice cheerful sunny card and although this may be bright I wanted to put a smile on Bella's face :-) Don't you just LOVE this penguin :-)

I coloured the image with copics ,, masked and decoupaged Mrs Penguin and added star dust stickles everywhere. The papers are from the Basic Grey June Bug paper pad and the flowers are prima. The button and ribbon were in my drawer and the shell was a RAK from Ria :-)

I am entering this into the following challenges:-
