Simon Says Stamp - 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop & Anything Goes Challenge





Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge 2nd Anniversary Celebrations :-) If you have just arrived here by chance and would like to join in the hop you will need to start at the begining on the challenge blog.

If you have arrived here from Jo's blog you are going in the right direction :-)


This week we have an ANYTHING GOES theme and a BLOG HOP :-)


There are 3 fabulous prizes from our lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp that 3 lucky entrants, drawn at random, will win !! You can see the piccy's of whats on offer on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.

ALSO we have a $10 Voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store to give away at every blog along the way !!

To be in with a chance of any of the prizes you MUST join in the challenge and complete the hop, leaving a comment on EVERY blog along the way :-)


So here is my card that I made for this week. I have to say I am still loving the stamps by Belles n Whistles .... this beauty is called 'Cupcake' ... isn't she beautiful! I have followed the sketch on this weeks BnW Challenge Blog and I got rather carried away with my flowers, lol. My Time to Craft has the theme of Perfect Pets so this also seems to fit the bill!



I have also used more Basic Grey papers again this week, I have to confess to having so many of their 6x6 pads but I just love them. These papers are from the Sugar Rush pad .... what delicious colours! You can also get plenty of bling and pearls online from Simon Says Stamp .


I am the last hop so remember to check you have followed all the rules - just make something and join in the challenge .... easy peasy! You can enter the challenge as many times as you like but you only need to complete the hop once (don't forget to leave your comments along the way)

Thanks for joining us for our very special celebrations and don't forget to add your name to the linky and leave me a comment to complete the hop!


Please only add your name to my linky of you have entered the challenge and left a comment on ALL the DT's blogs throughout the hop. I am afraid that I will remove names from the linky if the rules are not followed. This makes it fair to everyone who takes part in the challenge and hop. I would appreciate it if you could leave a direct link to your challenge entry post ..... thanks :o)

Have fun!!

EDITED TO ADD - PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ENTER THIS WEEKS CHALLENGE AND LEAVE A COMMENT ON EACH DT BLOG BEFORE ADDING YOUR NAME TO THE LINKY BELOW - I HAVE SADLY HAD TO REMOVE A FEW NAMES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT FOLLOWED THE RULES ..... I HATE DOING THAT BUT WE HAVE TO BE FAIR TO EVERYONE ENTERING XXX
