Simon Says - A Card for a Child

Wow! I haven't posted in several days!!! I am so sorry for my lack of blogging. I don't know why I am so busy.  I do have cards for the next 3 days so please check back and tell me what you think!

This week at Simon Says Challenge we want to see a card for a child.  The team is using the stamp line Boefje, that can be found at Simon Says Stamp.  They are some really cute ones to choose from.  You do not have to use a stamp from this line, just a card for a child.  The design team is also sending their cards to Post Pals or Make a Child Smile.  You may do the same if you wish.

I used MME Home collection for the paper and colored with distressed inks.  I tried to make a little ramp for him to be skateboarding over.  I think it worked ok.  The stars are from a sizzix die cut and I sewed all the edges.

I love what the team did with all these stamps.  Everyone has such a different style and they are all fantastic, be sure to check out their blogs.

Be sure to join in so that you can be entered to win a prize from Simon Says Stamp!!!

Thank you for coming to visit me!

Hugs, Dena
