Simon Says: Thinking Of You


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is


Today is Armistice Day,in the US it is known as Veterans Day. In 1918 it signified the end of the 1st World War and is traditionally a day to remember all of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty. We Will Remember Them.

We are showcasing Hero Arts Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Remember to click on the person's name to see all of the details and leave these wonderful girls some comment love


 I used a Color Layering Happy Day Flowers Clear Stamp Set and made some 'poppy' flowers.

I stamped these flowers with a few different inks onto various papers and in the end preferred the look of Fired Brick Distress Ink on Watercolor Paper. It was definitely a case of trial and error ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
