Simon Says ,,,,,,,, Mother's Day/Girlie Challenge

Another Scheduled post :-) I am in London on holiday and having a fab time :-) This weekend I will be going to the NEC and meeting teamies Jo, Heather, Dawny P and hopefully we will get to meet up with Debby too :-)I know several other blog buddies are going too ,, Cathy, Vicky, Kath ,,, I CAN'T WAIT !! :-) If any of you are going I would love to meet you :-)

Ok ,, moving on to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge ,,

It is Mother's Day in the UK on April 3rd so I think there will be quite a few challenges with a similar theme ,, lots of opportunity to combine !! :-)

MOTHER'S DAY/GIRLY ,,, nice and easy :-)

It will be Mother's Day in the UK on Sunday 3rd April and in the rest of the world on 9th May :-) Not all of us are lucky enough to have our Mum's still with us so we would like to see cards for a special girl in your life too :-)

This week the DT have all used Basic Grey products on their creations, you don't have to to join in but if you have them we would love to see them :-)

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 spree to her fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store,, so good luck !! :-)

For my card I used this fab Time For the Bubbly stamp set from My Favorite Things. I coloured the image with Copics, masked the image then sprayed the background using my fab Air Brush and decoupaged the bath, ( I should have taken a piccy from an angle to show that better !! ) The papers are Basic Grey Hopscotch, I paper pieced the floor and used some sanded coredinations for the rug. The lovely 'garter' ribbon is from Tim Holtz Lavish Trimmings ,, perfect for this image I think ,,, and I added my fave Star Dust Stickles on the bubbles and mirror. I used a Spellbinders Labels 8 nestie for the sentiment and added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.

edited ,, I was lucky enough to meet up with Debby on a recent visit to Guildford :-) We spent a few lovely hours chatting ,, it was so lovely to meet you Debby and hope we manage to meet up again on Sunday !! :-)

Here's a photo of us in Starbucks,, well ,, we HAD to go to an American coffee shop in honour of our Simon Says Stamp family on the other side of the pond !! Waves at Heidi,Steph, Sarah and all doing such a fab job in the offices. Good Luck in your new warehouse :-)
