Simon Says ... Give Thanks!

Morning, oops I am a little late with my post today .... guess who had an AMAZING sleep last night! I feel better than yesterday so looks like I am on the mend - woohoo!!!!

On Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog this week we are supporting a worthy cause ... you can read all about the details on our challenge blog but basically we want as many of you as possible to send a Thanksgiving or Christmas card so that they can be passed on to the elderly that either live alone, in nursing homes or who visit care centres. What a wonderful idea. We all have lots of cards in our craft rooms that would be perfect so please, please send what you can. Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog for details.

I am so happy to welcome the crazy lady that is Miss Dawny P as our Guest Designer for the next 4 challenges - woohoo, sure you will be as happy as a pig in muck my dear!

So to fit in with this our theme this week is Thanksgiving/Thanks

The winner will get a fab $25 spending spree online at Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!

I have made a thankyou card this week (I am going to send a christmas card to the card drive) and oh boy .... look ..... I have dug out one of my Penny Black's - it is a long long time since I used one of these beauties. I really love the vintage stamps ... she is just adorable. There is a huge selection to choose from online at Simon Says Stamp Superstore.

The papers are so pretty and I felt the colours had quite a vintage feel to them. They are from the Cosmo Cricket 'Mini Love' deck .... love, love, love these papers.

Excuse my rubbish colouring this week, I am afraid my nose and eyes were streaming so much it is a wonder I managed to get it done at all ...... promise to do better tomorrow, lol.


Penny Black Saturday - A Sketch
Charisma Cardz - More than 1 Fold
Pixie Dust Studios - Fall into Fall
Allsorts - Bingo ... punch, tag, ribbon

Still being good and making easels even though it takes me forever to do! I do love the finished look though so deffo worth the extra time.

Please pop back later for my next sneak peek that I have been sharing with you all week.
