Simon Says ,,,,, Anything Goes ,,, :-)

Hi all ,,, well another Wednesday has arrived and that means it's time for a new theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge ,,, but before moving onto that I would like to say 'Hello' to our new DT girlie, Melissa :-) Welcome to the team !! :-)
AND Happy Birthday to teamie Heather, she is 21 again !! Woo Hooo :-) Hope you have a lovely day with lots of cards and cake :-)

Please pop over to both blogs to leave a nice comment :-)

The theme for the next week is a nice and easy one ,,,,


As always our lovely boss Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a £50 spree to her fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store and with all the new goodies still pouring through the delivery hatch there is just sooo much to choose from :-)

The DT have all used stamps from Unity on their creations but you don't have to to join in :-)

For my card I used this lovely Humble and Gentle stamp ,,, I paper pieced the flower and leaves and just used a copic pen for the ladybird. I inked around the edge with Tumbled Glass distress ink and added Star Dust Stickles around the edges , then added Glossy Accents on the ladyird. The papers are Basic Grey Hopscotch and I added a few red Kaiser Craft pearls , some brown ribbon and some Jillibean twine thread. The button is from Basic Grey ,,, I have no idea where the sentiment came from and think it would have looked better without ,,, but when I tried to remove it it was tearing the paper ,,, :-( I think thats everything !!!

Cathy ,, our Designer in the Spotlight and the DT have ade some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them,, but before you leave please leave me a comment so I know you dropped in :-)
