Simon Says ,,, Paper Piecing/Piercing Challenge

Good Morning all :-) I hope you are all fit and well today. Christine our teamie lives in Alabama and her neighbourhood has been badly affected by the recent tornadoes. We are keeping you all in our thoughts xx

We had over 600 entries to our Anniversary Anything Goes Challenge and Blog Hop :-) We will be back asap with the winners and the whole list will be published on the Challenge blog :-)

This week Simon Says ,,,,,,


We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi and one lucky entrant will win a $50 spree to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store :-)

It is Vicky's last week with us and we would like to thank her for her lovely work over the last month :-) It has been fab having you with us :-)

The DT have all used stamps and products from My Favorite Things , you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them :-)

For my card I used this very cute Time for the Bubbly from My Favorite Things. I coloured the image with copics and paper pieced the ‘wallpaper’ with Jillibean Blossom Soup, all the papers are from this pad, I then added Star Dust Stickles on the mirror and bubbles. The wine bottle is from the same set. The ‘Fifty’ is from a Hero Arts set and I used a Bottle Cap Inc Flattened Chrome Cap and covered with an Epoxy Dot. The gingham ribbon was in my drawer.
I also decided to join in the paper piercing too and the edges were pierced using my sewing machine with no thread Smile

Thanks for looking, Vicky and the DT have made some fabulous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see them, Please visit individual blogs for details of how they made them too Smile

Hi Lols, hope the hay fever isn't punishing you too much!! Love the effect of wallpaper and the image is fabulous - and a perfect accompaniment for the bubbly goes with the bubbly and that will drown your hay fever!!
