Simon Says - You've Gotta Have Friends and NEWS!!!!!

Hi there! Today at the Simon Says Challenge Blog we want to see all your creations with the theme "You've Gotta Have Friends".  As always you can win a wonderful credit voucher at the Simon Says Stamp Store!!!

Here's a closeup of the image.

I tried to do some cool flowers like Kathy, but they don't look near as good as hers. She works wonders with those punches.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps: Penny Johnson-Bird and Bear found HERE 
Inks:  Distressed Inks
Paper:  MME Quite Contrary
Tools:  All 3 sizes retro punch, MS Branch Punch, Fiskars Starburst Border Punch
Embellies:  Flatbacked pearls, ribbon

So sorry for my lack of posting lately, I am leaving for Hawaii this Sat. and will be gone for 7 days, so I have needed to get all my challenge cards done ahead before I leave.  When I get back I will by dying to stamp, so hopefully I will have more time to do that.

An AWARD from Hanna!!

I know so many of you have seen the AMAZING Hanna's work.  If not, please stop by and drool a little at what she does with a few pieces of paper, a stamp, and some flowers (ok lots of flowers)!!!!!

She gave me this award which I am honored to receive.  Thank you so much Hanna!

BIG NEWS!!!!!!!

One more thing!!!! This is big news (at least for me).  I am now on the new Design Team for Wild Orchid Crafts!!!!! Let me just tell you I about jumped out of my skin!!!! I can't wait to work with the most gorgeous products around and some of the most talented stampers too!!!! You would know, my card today doesn't have any, but usually I use them on most ALL of my cards.  Keep a sharp look out at the Wild Orchid Blog for upcoming events.  Our first challenge will be July 12th and I'm sure there will be a super awesome prize to win!!!!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you can join our challenge this week at Simon Says! 

I appreciate each and everyone of you supporting my card making!!!

Hugs, Dena
