Simon Says … Sporty and/or Patriotic


Good afternoon to you all. Here we are at our new time for Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog – I hope you used the extra few hours this morning to join in with our previous challenge. If not we will forgive you as long as you promise to take part this week :o)

It is not long now until the Olympics start so our theme this week is to get inspiration from either the Olympics or 4th July.
The design team are all showcasing products by Cuttlebug this week.




So I decided to go down the 4th of July theme. I have had this image for quite a while now but never coloured her so it was about time I sorted that out! She is really marching with such a purpose that it really made me smile.




I have stuck to red, white and blue for her clothing too ….. I know the papers are really busy but I think it works quite well. I really like the balloons on the papers and they certainly fit in with all those Independance Day celebrations!!!




As usual there are plenty of embellies too …. but no flowers today from me (shock/horror). I have used my Copics to colour my image and I am trying out a new way of listing my colours. I have added clickable links for every single colour. How good am I lol. Let me know what you think and if you like it or not. If you do like it I will try to add it every week if I get time ….. see how I am not making any promises hehe.





You all know by now that if you are the lucky winner then you are set to win a $50 voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp Online Store – yes that’s right …. are we crazy????? Perhaps but you know that you have a great selection of goodies to spend it on so you would be crazy not to join in!!





As promised here are the links to the copics I have used …… think I have just booked my place in heaven … shining halo ….. x

Marcea, this is a darling card that could be either Olympics or the 4th of July! Love the image and the papers you used with her.
You deserve a halo for the extra time in linking each color and item used! VBG
