Crossword

First of all a huge thank you to everyone who joined in with Simon Says Stamp Challenge last week over a 1000 entries how amazing is that.


This week the challenge is Newspaper so if you actually have newspapers to ink and colour you can use that or patterned paper with writing on, or even stamp you're own paper. I took the cheats way out and decided to use the Penny Black stamp with a crossword puzzle which you find in Newspapers.
The yummy papers are Chapter One from Kaiser that I brought from Simon Says Stamps a new favourite might have to buy another pad.
Yes my card is straight, just notice that my middle mat doesn't look straight, the wonky photographer is at it again would you believe I use a grid display on my camera and I still get it wonky.

Now don't forget we have an amazing prize of


But you got to in it to win so pop over to the Challenge blog and check out the team for some inspiration.
