Simon Says ,,,,,,, Get In Shape !! :-)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!  are you going out trick or treating tonight ,,, or getting dressed up ready to party ?? ,,,  no ,,, me neither :-) 

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


Don't panic ,,, nothing too energetic ,,, just no square cards this week :-)

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

A few weeks ago Sarah made THIS hexagon card for the ‘Trendy’ challenge which I LOVED so I thought I would CASE her idea :-)

I made an easel card using Spellbinders Hexagon dies and products from the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit. I loved the little birds on this paper and used that as the starting point. 

I used a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Small Forest Tree die to cut out some shimmery card, I had mopped up the excess Lindy’s Stamp Gang Tawny Turquoise spray from a previous project and used it :-) I popped a cute little Studio Calico Wood Veneer Bird, adding a little eye with black Enamel Accents.


The twine and the button were also in the kit, isn’t that Basic Grey button gorgeous !! eta, the button and twine were also in the November Card Kit

For my card I used this gorgeous Starry Night image from the Wild Rose Studio :-)

Is it cheating to use an Xmas Bella printed panel ? :-)  I love these,, when you’re pushed for time you can make a quick and easy card in minutes ! The papers are from an  Xmas Bella pack too. I added a couple of Memory Box stars and a few hearts die cut using a Holiday Shapes die, and some ribbons and a LOTV sentiment to finish :-)
