Simon Says Sketch

Simon Says Challenge has a sketch for you this week by the very sweet Martine!  Be sure to go by the blog and check out all of the DT's work!

I really like this paper.  It is the 6x6 paper pad from BasicGrey called Cappella.  The flowers are Magnolia flowers that I got from Simon Says Stamp Store.  I bought them in white and had to mini  mist them with color.  The whole card is stitched and I used my MS Doily Border punch at the bottom.  Somehow, I always forget to add a sentiment.  I am going to really work on trying to put them in for the future! ha ha!

We have a New Vintage styled Challenge Blog going live in August! Simon Says Stamp and Show. The new challenge is devoted to All Things Vintage! The Style is inspired by the likes of Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi, 7 Gypsies and Graphic 45 - among many other Vintage enthusiasts.

The Design Team Call is from now until this Friday, and we would love to hear from you! Please go HERE for the details! The new challenge is Directed by the infamous, worldly, and OOOOBER talented Linda Elbourne! We are so pleased and honored to have her join us! Thank you Linda! I have been eying Linda's work for almost a year and had the luckiest opportunity in the world to meet her in person and sit across from her for Ranger U! It was a thrill and delight. Please join us in welcoming Linda to our Team!

We are soooo excited for the new challenge! The prizes are FANTASTIC! We have loads of variety packs of Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, Jenni Bowlin, Ranger, Wendy Vecchi goodies...and SO MUCH MORE!

We hope to offer you weekly challenges that will inspire you to let your creative juices flow, feed your soul, and (as Wendy would say)...make art!

Hope to see you over at Simon Says Stamp and Show!




That's it for me today!  I'll be back tomorrow with an LOTV challenge card.
