Simon Says: Thinking of You

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

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Thinking Of You

This week we are showcasing Penny Black Products.  You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them 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

This week we are welcoming our old friend, Isha Gupta, into the Designer Spotlight. Isha has been with us before and it is a great pleasure to welcome her back!

We are also welcoming a new Design Team member  to the line up! Please give a warm welcome to Tracy Freeman aka Inky Fingers And Ribbon.

I used a gorgeous  Elegance In Motion Cling Stamp, so pretty don't you think!

I haven't used the spotlight technique very often (if ever) but I thought that this stamp would look particularly good with just a part of it coloured, what do you think?

To make this card even more special I made a matching envelope :-)

I stamped the image on watercolor paper and then a part of it again before die cutting the circle. I then coloured with distress inks. 

 ,,and I finished the inside.  This card has gone to a lovely friend who is in need of a few hugs XX 

So now it's YOUR turn!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please 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
