Simon Says Stamp 'Love Is In The Air' Monday Challenge


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

Thank you for joining us for the 'Best Friends' challenge and we hope you will join us again this week too!
Before moving onto the challenge we would like to say a HUGE thank you to Suzz who has been with us for a couple of years but she is moving on to pastures new. We would like to wish you the very best of luck Suzz, it has been a pleasure working with you.

This week the challenge is


With Valentine's Day in a few days we are getting all romantic and creating for someone we love. As red is the color of love we would like tho see a hint of that in your creation too! We will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

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


I decided to make a tag for hubby to attach to my Valentine's gift ;-)

I love these Crazy Birds ( which incidentally are on special offer at the moment, so time to grab a bargain!) and couldn't resist dressing him up as a dapper gent in a dickie bow and top hat from the Crazy Things Set. I inked the tag with Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Inks and then used some Embossing Paste and Hearts Stencil to add more texture.  I used the heart and 'ground' from a Scribbles and Splat Die Set  and 'i love you' from a Small Chat Stickers Pack. Now I am hoping that hubby will buy me a nice gift to attach this to, not that I am dropping any hints or anything! 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


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

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