Simon Saya......Kid's Summer Challenge!!!

I am just announcing a post about fun children's annual.
It is a fun challenge with have 1-3 crafting goodies available for Children inbetwen 2 and 16 years.
If you have any Children please enter at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Kid's Challenge
NB - (but don't let them get into any of your own precious crafting goodies)
All the details needed are shown below.

 Hi all and welcome to another of our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers.


It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity :-) You are allowed to hide your Copic Markers and extra special papers and you are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to 'DO IT' themselves as much as possible :-)

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive.

We have not 1, not 2 but  3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon!

For this challenge we have a very special Junior Design Team who I am sure you will agree have done an excellent job.
Please give them a warm welcome and leave comments for them on their blog posts. Thank You xx

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

 Less Is More is the Recipe week and we'd like you to use Snippets.
I've been clearing out many unused bits and pieces etc. so not sure what to use for this challenge. I did find a couple of these pre-cut out Hedgehogs which I had lost, so I made a couple more for the challenge  - then the previous ones turn up - like life does!!!
These are the Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Clear Stamps and dies and I used the Simon Says Tri Square Die using Bazzill Butter Mint cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn set and I coloured a heart and used the Simon Says Holiday Shape Die. coloured with Copics and adds the Ranger Glossy Accenets which almost looks like a chocolate does't it??

Now I'm off to search for MoJo which has gone missing again!!!

Simon Says..................Anything Goes !!


Hi again everyone, our challenge is week is.........


We are showcasing PENNY BLACK PRODUCTS  this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some 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

For my first card I chose the cute Penny Black's Strawberry Jam image. I knew exactly how I would design the card and the papers didn't happen but this is the result.
I coloured the image with Copic Markers and used the papers with a combination of Studio Calco Sundrifter and Prima Marketing Princess

My second card is for Christmas, I have been putting this together for a while and growing this slowly and steadily.

My second card is for Christmas, having broken my arm at Christmas last year I was unable to sent cards - I couldn't even get cards into either envelopes or I starting to have them all read!!!
This is the Penny Black About Town Die - I like this card (better IRL) and will used the usa the basic design for many Christmas cards.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Simon Says July Kit !!

This is a card I used with the Autumn Card Kit. All the materials are part of the kit apart of the Simon Says Audrey Blue and a little Copic Markers to colour the inside of the Flip Flops.
I just love the stamp sentiment 'Love is better with 'Flip Flops' - I wasn't better with out my Flip Flops today we had a torrential rainfall - just as I popped to the shop. I only wanted a loaf of bread, I was soaked to the skin, my hair, jacket, trousers and even my shoes are left drying out.
Now I have to make which stamps of elements next, I'm tempted by using the Martha Stewart's confetti mix - hmm!!

I've just received my Magnolia set and couldn't wait to colour them.
Then I needed what to use for my House Mouse & Friends challenge - I kept looking at Tilda and wondered what she was doing just sitting there.  Eureka - She's sitting there for the little baby Hoppers to play Leap Frog.
The images are all coloured with Copic Markers and Distress Inks with the background........ the images together are pretty large so I have leave a CAS design with sentiment only - the top one is computer generated, the lower one from the set.
