Simon Says … Anything Goes


Hello folks, it is time for another brand new challenge so I hope you can join us this week on Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. Our theme this week is ANYTHING GOES!!!!
The design team are all using products by Lawn Fawn and Unity Stamps this week ….

09-11.11

Another card that is very different for me – no cute little characters but it is good to try something else. I was thinking that I could have masked a little character next to this and that would have been nice so I might do that another time. Can I just say how fab these stamps are – they are already mounted onto ezimount and the stamp sheet is die cut so you just pop your stamp out and you are good to go – genius!!!

Music Saves My Soul Saturday - remembering Freddie


Good morning to a very windy morning in the UK ...... it is the weekend again already and I am off ALL weekend woop woop. I am travelling to see my son perform this evening and I am really looking forward to it. He is also performing a solo so it will be another proud momma moment!



I wasn't sure what song to share today so delved deep inside my brain and came up with this little gem -  hope you enjoy .....






...... have added these videos to remind us all of the genius that was Freddie Mercury ..... we all miss you 20 years on, RIP Freddie 


















Apologies for not visiting the last couple of weeks - I am going to do it right now - I have just been so busy with work ..... no excuse really but time seems to be so limited at home at the moment.



To play along just share the logo somewhere on your blog, post your video (read HERE how to do this) and then add your post link to blue froggy below .... easy!!!!

REMEMBER - YOU CAN JOIN IN ANY DAY OF THE WEEK - NOT JUST SATURDAY :o)

Have a great week folks xxx

Simon Says … Photo Inspiration



Hi there folks, almost finished my night shifts …. one more to do so so I am going to go and snuggle in bed for the day whilst you are all busy doing your work and crafting. I will have a few days off after this so looking forward to that :o)

This week on Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog we have a photo to inspire you. As soon as I saw it I knew which stamp I wanted to use. You can use it for inspiration in any way though – even using the colours if you want to.

02-11.11
As you can see though I have used poppies as my inspiration – I am developing a little crush on these House Mouse stamps and I think I might be ordering a few more in the future. They are so cute and really easy to colour too. I know my fellow teamie Lols has a bit of an addiction going on with these little guys and now I know why! I am also totally hooked on Kaiser Craft papers ….. You can’t really tell in this picture but the red paper is glazed. Their packs usually come with glazed, foiled and glittered papers and usually some die cut matching borders too – I love them big time!!!!

november19header

You should all know by now that one lucky person will win an amazing $50 to spend at Simon Says Stamp Online Store -  so what is stopping you … get crafting!!!!

Music Saves My Soul Saturday


Morning, yes I know it is Monday and I am 2 days late but I hope you don't mind and still play along. Yep, time for Music Saves My Soul!!



A couple of weeks ago I put up a song to say goodbye to Westlife so this week I thought I would say hello to a group which has recently reformed. Oh yes, hello again to Steps!!!! I have to secretly admit to loving Steps - I even saw them in concert, lol. I just love the upbeat tunes even if they are cheesy - I don't care!!!!!






I was in HMV the other day and they were playing Steps - it was so odd to hear them again but it certainly put me in a great mood for my shopping trip.

A couple of days off after that though, so I should catch up with a bit of DT work and then …… Ryan is home for the weekend :o)

I won’t get to see him much though because I am working and he has a CD recording but at it will be nice to see him even if it is only for a little while.
