Simon Says: Trio-Tastic

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

When this challenge posts I will be half way across the pond, aboard a Virgin Atlantic flight, on my way to spend Thanksgiving with Heidi, Steph and all of my lovely Simon family in Columbus!! I am so super excited!! I have a lot to be thankful for ;-)

This week the challenge is


use 3 of something on your project.

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

I made a card and matching gift tag for a special milestone birthday using  a trio of Tim Holtz Crazy Cats. One of them is hiding inside the card ;-)

I used an Indigo Blu Tasty Textures Background set and Archival Shadow Grey ink for the background along with a Bubble Stencil, White Embossing Paste and a splattering of inks for the background. 

This cat doesn't like the idea of being 60 so is trying to burst all of the balloons ;-)

I made this for my brother, who has been dreading this birthday for several years ;-) He wears glasses and is quite a dapper kind of guy so I gave him a bow tie.

 He has recently adopted a beautiful little black and white kitty so I coloured this to look like her ;-)

and I finished the inside ;-) 

Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries 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 :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

What a great card and I love, love, LOVE the way you personalized it! Every detail is so perfect and I'm sure it had to make the "dreaded birthday" much better! I always get a kick out of hearing the stories behind a project and this post was a lot of fun to read! You can't beat good reading and crafty eye candy, so thank you!
