Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us last week and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is Anything Goes
We are showcasing Altenew this week, which just so happens to be Simon says Stamp Brand of the Month. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together! 

I had got something from Simon says Stamps for this challenge, I picked it because there was plenty in stock but to be honest it wasn't really me, So I hunted in my Mama Elephant stamp box there was few and discovered that SSS still has this marvellous Artic Penguins still in stock not sure how many but a idea immediately popped into my head.

A few weeks ago there was a sketch on CAS(e) this sketch where there was three squares on the bottom so why not have penguins instead.

First though I gave them some ice to stand on don't want floating penquins. I coloured them roughly and used Glossy Accents to make them shiny (don't look too close on the bigger bit it cracked when sticking them down.) The penguins were easy to make it was the fussy cutting that was tricky bit.

Oh forgot to say I cut the Simon says Stamp Wonky Rectangle before I did anything to give a finishing edge. I stamped the sentiment direct to the card and it came out first time, go me. The sentiment by the way is from Simon says Stamp Inside Christmas Greetings.

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

Super cute card Debby :-) the penguins are adorable and I love the CAS design, absolutely gorgeous :-)

A little tip to kow how many are in stock: click on the quantity, and try to add a larger amount, 9 for example, and the total number in stock will show, ie there are 2 sets of these penguins currently in stock ;-)

Hope you have a great week X
Stay Safe XX
