Simon Says ,,,, Time to Party/Celebrate :-)

Good Morning all :-) I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and you're now looking forward to a Happy New Year :-) Thank you for joining in with our Anything Goes Challenge last week, we appreciate you taking the time to join in especially at this very busy time of year :-)

This week, our challenge is TIME TO PARTY/CELEBRATE !

Domi gave us this fab bottle template to use for the challenge , it is not compulsory ,, just an extra bit of fun :-) also all the DT used Glimmer Mist and Glitter on their creations, if you have them we would love to see them used ,,, but you don't have to to join in :-)

The winner this week will win a $50 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store - BRILLIANT !!! :-)

For my card I used these lovely Popcorn Bear and Little Duck stamps from the Celebrate set, the sentiments are in the set too. I coloured the images on the card and bottle tag with Copics and Prismacolor pencils and I inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are Echo Park Merry Christmas I glittered here and there with Star Dust Stickles glitter glue and used gold Glimmer Mist on the bottle. I used a Martha Stewart Lattice Arch border punch and added a couple of gems and grungeboard die cut stars ,, coloured with a white acrylic dabber, coloured with copics and smothered in stickles :-) I plugged in my sewing machine and zig zagged the edges, I am really liking sewing on cards and have a few more to show in the next few days !! The ribbon was in my drawer and I added a little Jingle Bell charm to ring in the New Year !! :-)

close ups :-) the lovely gold ribbon on the bottle was a gift from my lovely teamie Jo :-)

Challenges :

Crafters Companion ,,,,,, Sketch ,, I stuck the strip on a bit too low by accident but when I tried to remove it the paper was tearing so I had to leave it ,,, if it doesn't fit please delete me xx

Anything Goes ,,, the letter C ,, Celebrate !!

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.
