 CLICK HERE to see my Simon Says Stamp Wednesday'Thanksgiving/Thanks' Challenge Post.

Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring Tracey McNeeley's Day 3 of the annual  25 tags of Christmas event. 

Myself and several members of the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday Design Teams were invited make a tag to share and promote this special event. It is so nice to get both teams working together! To see them all CLICK HERE 

YOU could win $50 voucher to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store! 

 I for one always forget to make Christmas tags and end up making very quick, and desperate, ones at the last minute. It was nice to spend a littler bit of time making a nice one for a change ;-)

I love this Sketch Gift Wafer Die which was part of the STAMPtember® Release, isn't it gorgeous!

Simon Says: Thanks/Thanksgiving


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

I got home yesterday evening after a fabulous trip to Simon Says Stamp. It was an action packed and fun filled 3 weeks! I got to meet so many people at the CREATE event, it was AWESOME!! On the way home I stopped off for a couple of days in London and got to spend some time with my son, Sean, my parents, my brother and his partner. It was a perfect end to a perfect trip :-)

Thanks Heidi, Jason and all at Simon Says Stamp, I am missing you all LOTS XXX 

This week the challenge is


It will be Thanksgiving in America in a couple of weeks, a time to count our blessings and be grateful for our lovely family and friends.
 Life moves along so quickly and now is the time to stop and think of all of the good things in our lives. 

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
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I used Stitched PumpkinsSmall Chevron Stripes and Thanks Craft Dies

I stamped the background using a Stampendous 'Wired' Cling Stamp inked with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
For the Stitched Pumpkins I used Watercolor paper and smooched the pumpkins into a puddle of Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks. I love the effect of this for the pumpkins, makes them less 'perfect' and more 'real' don't you think ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn!


If you use instagram add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
