Simon Says ,,,,, Dawny’s Sketch :-)

Hi all and thank you all for joining us for the Fruity Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

Before moving on to this weeks challenge we would like to ask you if you would please join in with the Cards for Maddy Card Drive. Maddy is a 13 year old girl who is undergoing treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. For further deatils please see THIS post on the Simon Says Stamp Blog THANK YOU :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring MY FAVORITE THINGS products you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them used if you have them :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

and this is Dawny's FABULOUS sketch !! :-)

I used this very cute ‘Start the day with Whee’ image from MFT.

I stamped with black Memento ink onto Neenah card and used the tag die from the ‘Tag You’re It’ set. I then stamped the grass using a Hero Arts stamp from a ‘Stamp a Garden’ set. I paper pieced her dress and then coloured with Copics and added star dust stickles here and there. The papers are from a Basic Grey PB&J pack and I used a Button Quartet die to make the buttons to hang the swing from ,,,, :-) I cut out several buttons from scraps of white card and then cut the top ones from the papers and then tied a twine bow. I only used the ‘Whee’ part of the sentiment and added a few Dew Drops to finish.

I finished the inside by off stamping the image, coloured with copics and then used a Hero Arts sentiment and an extra button with a twine bow :-)

Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them and please join in !! :-)
