Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Pin It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

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

By The Sea
so anything Beach/Nautical related

thanks Joy for this fabulous Inspiration Board ! :-)

We are showcasing Fancy Pants Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.

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

Remember to click on the person's name or card to see all of the details and leave these wonderful girls some comment love! :)

I decided to make a circular card for a change :-)

I used a Fancy Pants Down By the Shore paper pack and a Button Set, the buttons are currently out of stock but should be back soon :-)

I used a Simons Exclusive Sunshine die and added a Fancy Pants button in the centre, covering up the holes with googly eyes ,,, so cute ! :-)

edited to add,,,, I cut the anchor for Heather while she was here and she must have dropped it on her bedroom floor, I found it several days later  ( ,,, I don't hoover every day !! )  and I didn't want to waste it ,,, lol ,, I put it to good use ,,,, poor heather had spent ages searching through her luggage for it :-(

I will link all the products I used at the bottom :-)

Love your sea inspired card Lols. I can't seem to find a 'followers' widget on either of the two new blogs though. Am I missing it? It's not coming up in my feed anymore so I forget to check it out and see the new creations? Maybe I'm being a dunce (probably!).
