Thank you for joining us for the Make For the Border Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

It's Hip To Be Square

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I usually mix my cards up with either Square or Rectangle so I wanted to do something different from the usual one image but I just couldn't think of anything. Then I thought it was time to use the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs. It all started to fall into place.

So I decided to use the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares to make the frames and then worked out which crazy dogs heads would work together. Out came my colouring Prismacolor pencils and I didn't buy the dies for the stamps so I fussy cut them but I run a Tim Holtz Distress Marker Pumice Stone round the edges to hide the white core paper.

I purposely made sure that the dogs ears, nose or tongue overlapped the frames. I laid the frames where I wanted them to go and then stamped the Simon Says Stamp Choose Happy sentiment in the spare square.

The rest of the card didn't need to be too busy because the stars are the crazy dogs. So I used the Lawn Fawn Beachside Pint size and I chose the stars so I could use the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes stars.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
