Simon Says ,,,,,, FOOD and DRINK

Hi all :-) Thanks for all your entries to our ‘White’ challenge last week and I hope you’re all ready to join us again this week too :-) Don’t forget that we also have a Children’s Challenge running for this month too so give them your copics and let them join in !! ha ha ,,, OK ,, crayons it is then !!

We are welcoming back our lovely sister Heather today, many of you know that she has been a bit poorly recently and we are so happy that she is well on the road to recovery :-)

Summer is the time for indulgence ,, BBQ’s, Ice Creams , G&T’s, Cool Beers !! so that is our theme this week ,,,

Eat Drink and be Merry !! We want you to have Food and/or drink on your creations ,,, you could make a tag and tie it to a bottle of wine ,,, the possibilities are endless :-)

I made another easel card this week, I used my new Garden Feast stamp ,, sooo cute eh !! I love the little meeces sharing a carrot with their bunny friend ,, aww :-)

I coloured with copics and although this stamp is quite big it was very easy to colour. The papers are Basic Grey from the Life of the Party pack and I used a Martha Stewart Double Loop PATP punch set. I made the flower using some white card and a TH Tattered Florals die,I then sprayed with my Copic Air Brush, I added a Prima flower and a button with a little bit of twine tied through. I used a Magnolia Heart Swirl die , some bias tape and a SU sentiment stamp to finish.

Heidi and her staff have recently from the CHA and have ordered loads of THE hottest new products. Keep an eye on the All New Just In Pages there are sure to be lots of fab new goodies arriving right now !!

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Hi Lorraine :) This is just gorgeous hun. I saw this card on the challenge blog and had to pop over to leave a comment.

Orange is such a rare colour to see in card-making but this is eye-poppingly beautiful. I love the mix with the right shade of green and your colouring is fantastic.

Love the use of the MS PATP, I keep meaning to give this a go! :)

Gorgeous dies, bow and embellies.

Wow, Lols, what a lovely card you have made. I always love how you use the House Mouse stamps. This one in particular is colored so prettily!! Love the fabulous fun fold on this card too. Easel cards are so cool looking. Love the outside scalloped edge as well. It really stands out. Really there isn't anything that I don't love about your card. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and enjoying your company!
