Where’s Washi?


Brrrrrr, good afternoon. Oooh it is ever so chilly here in Yorkshire today and we still have snow on the ground from the past couple of days. I chose the perfect week off work I think cos I can just stay in and craft … which is just what I am doing!!!

Wednesdays always bring a brand new challenge for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week it is  …..


I have to say we are getting quite creative with the stuff now. Pop over to the challenge blog for more inspiration. Can you find my washi tape?


Lol, well I stuck several rows under each other onto brown card and then punched out the hearts ….. how cool!! I was trying to think of a way to use it without just sticking it as a border etc … so what do you reckon?

I had so much fun making this card and I think I have found my love for paper all over again. One of my favourite stamps ever, ever, ever!!!! I have been all inky and even had messy fingers … gasp!!!Can I also say to anyone who wants to distress their images/papers with inks …. you really do need cut & dry foam and a glass mat, it makes life so much easier as I have discovered   - seriously, where have I been rofl!!!!! The scrummy papers are by Glitz. Full product links are below … click each picture to be taken to product x

Heidi will be giving a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Finally, here is a pic of a rather icy looking cobweb – spotted it in the garden and thought it looked really pretty
