Simon Says: Chill Out On The Monday Challenge

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

This week we are challenging you to

Chill Out

The weather is quite chilly at the Simon HQ, but you can also choose to chill out at the beach with if you prefer warmer climes! There are lots of options for this challenge, we can't wait to see what you create!
Please pop by to see what our fabulous GD, Autumn, and the DT made and leave some comments, we all appreciate them ;-) 

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 'Chilled Out' Christmas card, another one ticked off the 2017 Christmas card 'To Do' list! I hope to be more 'chilled out' and organised for next Christmas ;-) 

I used a super cute Tim Holtz Blueprint Snowman Stamp along with a Woodland Tree Die and a fabulous new Simon's Exclusive Holiday Background Stamp to create a winter wonderland :-)

I inked the background with Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass Inks and then when it was completely dry I heat embossed the background text. for the snow drifts I tore the paper and then used Rock Candy Glitter to make the icy edging ;-)

Thanks for looking!

 I hope you will all join in with your mixed media/arty style creations!! :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

House Mouse And Friends 'New' Challenge

Hi all :-) I am back with a reminder for the current 'New' theme on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge ;-)

The lovely America is hosting this challenge and the theme is 

Something New 
it could be a New Job, New Baby, new Home, new Crafty Stash, you can also choose the Anything Goes theme but whatever you choose have fun with these super cute images :-)

I decided to make a New Baby Card and Co-ordinating Gift Bag

I love the Doll Pink Card and matching ink pads from Simon says Stamp and I thought it would add a bright shot of colour to this quite CAS card, rather than going for the baby pink shades that I would normally choose. 

Arent these little baby meeces adorable with their little nappies on, aww :-) 💕

I masked off the rest of the stamp so that just this little one was stamped onto the tag. 

Thanks for looking! I hope you will all join in and spread the love for these cute House Mouse, Happy Hoppers and Gruffie images ;-) 

We are sponsored by our lovely teams America and Sue 

 America will be giving this gorgeous
