Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes

Good afternoon ! What a gorgeous day it is today !  It makes such a change from the dark gloomy stuff we have had for a week now.   I know everyone is talking about it, but isn't it cold brrrr !

The girls started their Easter holidays this week and its been so nice not to have to rush around every morning.  They can't wait until the weekend and all that chocolate.  Anyone would think it was going to be Christmas again !!

I have been busy making some cards for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, a job which I adore.  I can't give anything away but I must say, it has been sooo hard getting my head thinking about hot, sunny days !!! but I have managed it and I hope you like what I have made come July !

Anyway, its Wednesday and that can only mean one thing......time to announce our next challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !!

This week our challenge is 

ANYTHING GOES

The DT are this week showcasing Avery Elle and Mama Elephant products.

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!





I just love this Blossoms and Blooms stamp set by Avery Elle and as for the Hero Arts inks, well, they are fantabulous !  I have been looking for some great coloured inks for a long time now and I can highly recommend these ones.  I bought the little cubes which are in sets of 4 but you can also buy the large pads too.  I shall certainly be getting some more of these, they are yummy !

I have linked everything I used below.

I am entering my card into the following challenges :

2 Sisters - Easter/Spring

BasicGrey Challenges - Happy Easter !

Good afternoon ! Sorry, I am running a bit late today ! 

 It is time for another challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges. Thank you to everyone who joined in with our Spring Is In the Air Challenge, we had lots of super duper entries !

This next fortnight our challenge is 

HAPPY EASTER !

Please do remember that to be eligible for our prize you must use at least one BasicGrey product on your creation

We are of course being sponsored by the fantastic Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will win a $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !


I am so sorry for the awful photo.  The weather here has been terrible, so dark, wet and gloomy and I've done all the editing I can on it !!!

I used the cute image from Lili of the Valley "Easter Sweeties".  I didn't use the whole image as its a long, narrow stamp so I just stamped a small part of it.  You can see links to everything else I used below.

The little envelope is, of course, too small to fit the card into !  I made the envelope to contain some money as an Easter gift that I shall slip inside the card.  Simon Says Stamp have a super new envelope die which is so easy to use and has score lines on it too so you can knock up a mini envelope in no 
time !  There are even matching stamps too !  Details below !

I am entering my card and envelope into the following challenges :

Art Impressions Stamps - Cards and envelopes 

Cute Card Thursday - Easter Parade


Papertake Weekly - Easter Treats

Thank you so much for your visit.  I hope you have a great Saturday !
