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

This week the challenge is

Happy Birthday!  

We are celebrating the Wednesday Challenge's 8th Birthday his week! Where has the time gone!  They do say that time flies when you're having fun and we hope that you have as much fun with the challenges as we do! We all really appreciate YOU for joining in with us and we look forward to seeing your birthday themed entries!

As you all know I have been with the challenge from the very beginning, as have Jo and Debby, we have seen many fabulous designers come and go along the way and I would like to thank them all for their time spent with us. I would like to thank all of our guests and the design team for all of their help and support, we are a family and I love them all XXX We have all had a great time and had a lot of fun along the way.

Thanks Heidi, Steph and all at Simon Says Stamp! I can't believe the 8 years have flown by so quickly and one of the greatest pleasures in my life has been meeting you all in Ohio!! see you all NEXT WEEK!! WOO HOO!! I am going to be helping at the CREATE event so if you are going to be there please stop by to say 'hello' I would love to meet you!! 
This week we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
A birthday is always special and the lovely and very generous Heidi will be giving away not one, not two but EIGHT, yes EIGHT $50 Vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. Woo Hoo!!

We are welcoming Birgit Edblom into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited Birgit aka 'Rapport Från Ett Skrivbord's blog then you are in for a real treat, her creations are awesome!

I used Boston Terrier Love Stamp and Die Set, as it is 'Simon's birthday I just had to ink up this little cutie, isn't he adorable with his cute scarf ❤️

I also used Pile Of Gifts and Painted Happy Birthday Dies and I have to say, I love how this turned out :-) 

I used a Fuse Tool to make a shaker but I also adhered some acetate behind the window so that I could pop back a few of the bits ;-)

and this is the inside :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your birthday supplies and join in the fun!!
8 $50 Vouchers!! 
That HAS to be worth playing for!! Don't forget, you can join in 5 times, so you will have more chance of winning!!
