Thinking of You


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is

Animal Magic   

We are showcasing Gina K  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 the lovely Heidi and team Simon will be giving away a $50 Voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store ! 

Sshh I know its not an animal but a bird I checked google and it mentions that birds are a class of animal.

I've used Gina K Wetlands 2 big apologies since the stamp set is now out of stock but I would recommend using notify me when back in stock. I've used a few times and it works a treat.

One of Hubby's friend as lost her Mum and he wanted a sympathy card, although I find CAS are the best way to go for these type of cards I would rather not make them.

I used Tim Holtz Tonic Stamp Platform especially with new clear stamps and it help me to be able to create a scene. I cut the heron twice and fussy cut one so it is slightly raised.

Forgot to say I had already cut my white card with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles (the most used die set in my whole craftroom). Sorry they out of stock at the mo, will be back soon I'm sure.

My favourite stamp at the moment is Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages and it as a beautiful Thinking of you sentiment which I've used here.

A bit of sadness to see so many of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge leave us for various reason and I wish them all well.

Good news out of hundreds of entries we are pleased to welcome and its worth checking out their blogs I know I have.

Myself with Lols, JoLinMandyTracy have been invited to stay with the team. 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Let's try this again. What a lovely card you've created. I love it's simplicity. That little bit of dimension is just perfect. I just added the Thoughtful Messages stamp set to my wishlist. I hadn't seen that one before. Clicking that Publish button now. :)

This is a wonderful sympathy card. I think that CAS is best for this purpose, too.
