Happy Hopper Mummy :-)

I made this card following Ariana's lovely sketch on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge :-) I thought it was PERFECT for a baby card :-)

I used my new Happy Hopper Love Bunny stamp ,,, sooo cute :-)doesn't she look a proud Mummy :-) I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with pink chalk ink then smothered with star dust stickles :-) The papers are Funky Fairys and the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set. the buttons were in the prize I won on the Peggy Loves Vintage Easter Challenge ,,, thanks Peggy xx the ribbon is SU and I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch.

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-)

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blogoversary and Blog Hop

Before announcing the challenge this week I have some sad news :-( Timea has resigned from the team due to family and work commitments. Heidi and the whole team are really sorry to see her go but know that her family must always come first. We all wish her the very best for the future and hope that she will consider re-joining us when circumstances allow :-) In the meantime we will be stalking her blog :-) We love you Timea xx

It is a very special week for us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week ,, it is one whole year since we launched the challenge and what a fabulous year it has been :-)

To celebrate Heidi has given us a FANTASTIC PRIZE to offer to one lucky entrant AND all the DT have a set of Simon Says Stamp Exclusives to give away too :-)

The theme this week is ,,, what else !


Unfortunately Iris is away at the moment so is not taking part but we have invited Anna and Kim to rejoin us for this special occasion :-)

If you didn't start the blog hop at the beginning, then you want to head back to Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog so you do not miss anything.

If you're going in the right direction you should have arrived here from the amazingly talented Kim's blog :-)

I saw a fabulous cake on the Claire's Blog ( Waltsingmouse Makes)and thought it would be perfect for this challenge :-) I had to wait several hours for Claire to have the template ready for sale and think I must have been the very first customer :-) In fact there was a glitch and the template showed up as free !!! When I downloaded it I knew it was a mistake so I emailed Claire to ask her to send me an invoice ,, and she very kindly refused to let me pay ! How nice is that of her !! Thanks Claire I really appreciate it xx You can buy this template in the Waltsingmouse Stamps Store

Now onto my cake, I more or less copied Claire's sample ,, hard to top hers !! I just changed the colours from brown to ivory and the stamps I used ! I have to say that this template was a dream to use ,,, no faffing about altering sizes,, which has happened to me lots of times before ,,, this fit together perfectly ! :-)

I used a Mod Background Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set
to decorate the lids. I stamped them with white pigment ink and embossed with silver pearl embossing powder.

I added Kaisercraft gems for extra sparkle and finished off with large ivory bows. The sides were decorated with ivory cream filling and strawberry jam ric rac :-)

I decorated the liners with sherbert and pearl glimmer mist.

The number for my blog is 2

Next head over to Martine's Blog to see what fabulous creation she has for you to see :-)
