House Mouse 'Stockings Hung'

Hi all :-) Did you know that there are only 267 days left to Christmas !! It will be here in the blink of an eye so better get ready ! :-D 

This time on the ABC Christmas Challenge Lacey is our lovely host and she has chosen

'G' is for GLITTER

I used this very cute House Mouse 'Stockings Hung' Cling Stamp, aww, not a creature was stirring, not even a ,,,,,, ;-)

I stamped and then masked the image, then stamped a brick wall background using Simon's Fog Ink. For the glittery panel I embossed a piece of coordinating Fog Cardstock and then glittered the raised stripes.

I might have positioned the pearls differently, but the one under the 'M' is covering up and oopsie

I am just packing and getting ready for a holiday, so I will catch up with you all when I get back :-)

We are Sponsored this challenge by:

Prize is 3 Digital Images

Hope you all have a great week :-)

Simon Says Happy Birthday !


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

This week the challenge is


please make a happy birthday celebration creation 

I can't believe we are already celebrating our 6th Birthday !! Jo and Debby have been with us from the very first challenge and many of the Designers have been with us a long time ! I have enjoyed every minute of it and have learned so much along the way. It has been a real pleasure to work with and meet so many talented designers. It has certainly helped me to improve my crafty skills and kept me on my toes ;-)
Simon Says Stamp really is a family and I love being a part of it, meeting Heidi, Jason and their children, Steph and all the people behind the scenes at Simon has been a great thrill and I can't wait till we meet again :-) 

We are showcasing our very own SIMON SAYS STAMP EXCLUSIVE 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

To mark this special occasion Simon Says Stamp will be giving away not 1 but 6 $50 vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store !
I used this very cute Abby's Spring Showers Stamp Set. The 'model' for this set is Heidi's daughter :-)

I really had fun making this. I masked her and created a delicate cloudy sky using a copic air brush but it does't show up so well in the photo :-/

and I finished the inside too, makes it extra special :-)

I am going away for a couple of weeks, visiting Vietnam and Cambodia, so I will catch up with you all when I get back :-)
