Simon Says: Food and/or Drink on the Monday Challenge


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

Thank you for joining us for the Use Some Lucky Stars Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


This is fairly easy and open to all options so we will look forward to seeing what you make!

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


 I really love the Crazy Cats  and the Mini Bird Crazy and Things  sets and wanted to make a card for  a dear friend who is celebrating a special birthday.

 Unfortunately the bird ate the fishy gift he was intending to give so the cat is looking slightly miffed. I used a Dot Fade and Splatter Stencils  together with Stormy Sky Ink and White Embossing Paste for the background. For the grass I tore a strip of scratch paper and used that as a mask before blending with Mowed Lawn ink and then I used a brown pencil to dirty it up a bit.

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

Hope you all have a great week :-)

What a cute scene! I understand you perfectly, once you start to play with Crazy Cats and Birds, you just can't stop. They are perfect for every occasion and match with absolutely anything. I like how you colored them and made the cotton ball. Great job! Hugs, Marzena

Hi Lorraine, this card is fantastic! I think I'm addicted to both these sets of dies and for you to use them in the one card is a wonderful idea. I love all the various textures you've used. x

I absolutely love the scene you created for this card, Lols! The bird taunting the cat makes me chuckle. I love to send birthday cards with humor and this is just perfect! Cathie <3

Kath Stewart said...

I may have mentioned before that I have a rocky relationship with cats (long sad tales from my youth that I won't take the time to bore you with), but I do still adore your card! I thought it was GENIUS (all in caps) of you to do the yarn ball like you did! That dimensional element was awesome and you have all sorts of cool layers going on here. Excellent work!

Emma Williams said...

Fabulous card and I love that little detail of the ball of wool, which is so clever and looks fantastic!
Hugs, Emma x

Sandra said...

What a fun card, Lols! The kitty with the bird, the milk and the ball of wool! It sure is its bird day! Hugs, Sandra

This card is fantastic but i have to admit that i stared a good few minutes to understand how you made the bow looking like a wool ball. This is so smart and it works simply perfectly with the whole card!!!!
