Simon Says ,,,,,, Anything Goes !! :-)

Oh bloomin ekk ,, blogger is being a nightmare  !! I posted this earlier and it sent my whole blog haywire, I have had th re write the whole thing ,,,, :-(

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge the theme is ,,,,,,,,


The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring October Afternoon products this week,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!

I used this super cute Happy Hoppers ‘Rabbits of the Round Table’ image ,, I thought it went just perfectly with the chair design paper in the October Afternoon  Farmhouse pack :-)

I decided to make an easel type card as this stamp is quite large and it enables me to add more bits n bobs to it :-) Also I loved the paper with the banners printed on it and wanted to use one as a room decoration :-) I will add all the links at the bottom of this post.

As the paper pack is 8x8 inches there was a lovely strip of paper just waiting to be used so I made this quick card too :-)

In retrospect I think this might work better as a ‘You’re Invited’ ,,, for dinner card,,, a friend also said it could be used for  a game of musical chairs invitation,, LOL ,,, :-)
I love the Little Flyers flags ,,and the matching Farmhouse buttons ,, I love it when everything coordinates perfectly!! :-) The text was cut on my FAB Silhouette Cameo machine ,,, what a fab invention that is !! LOVE LOVE LOVE it  :-)
Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to  see them :-)
