Simon Says ….. Back to School


Good afternoon to you all, thank goodness for challenges or I would never know what day it is, I am so confused this week with my shifts. I finished my nights on Monday morning and I am back at work today for 13 hours of fun in A&E (or the Emergency Department as we are supposed to call it). I should hopefully be having my lunch right about now and have only got 6 hours left to do before I can tootle on home. Doubt I will get any crafting done tonight or tomorrow but I have some things planned for my days off that I want to colour so hopefully my blog won’t be too neglected.

So onto this week on Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog. It is getting to that time of year when parents start to look a little happier because their kids are all heading back to school. So it seemed like the perfect theme for this week ……

BACK TO SCHOOL


The design team are all using products by Sizzix so do have a look for some great inspiration. You don’t have to use Sizzix products but if you do we would love to see them.



I have gone for an autumnal feel for my card today, after all it is the autumn term isn’t it. I am just loving my new Prima ‘Autumn Splendor’ glittered leaves which are glittered – wow, these are right up my street!



I have used this gorgeous image by The Greeting Farm. You will have to excuse my slightly peachy looking little lady – I am needing to get a couple of refills so I better get that sorted for next time … maybe she has just got back from an exotic holiday lol. I am not too sure about my little dots this time around my main image …. sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t, no big deal though hey.




I didn’t have the correct coloured flowers so I coloured mine to match with my Copics – I really do think I may just buy white from now on and do this all the time … guaranteed coordinating blooms every time! I used some really lovely textured blooms by Hero Arts.

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!!
