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.

I embossed some white card with a Cuttlebug snowflake design and popped him on there. The papers are from Martine, unfortunately she has stopped blogging for a while so they aren’t available anymore :-/ I used an EK Success border punch, a Martha Stewart Himalayan snowflake punch and a Hero Arts Felt Snowflake.
