simon says stamp/hip to be square-thanks


Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!

Hello, this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge hip to be square. The design team is spotlighting products from simon says stamp. Don't forgot every week at simon says stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!


I have created a sweet little 3x3 square note card set....a perfect little set to give away to a friend who uses a lot of thank you cards in her line of work. I watercolored the gold background, luv the look and then added a skinny piece of washi tape, I adore gold, pink, and black together...especially black & white stripes....LUV! The tiny sweet flower from the simon set birthday flowers is the main focal point....totally cute!

words with meaning - always do your best. what you plant now, you will harvest later.

thank you


sharing a card created for freshly made sketches and the global design colors. I have used the awesome concord & 9th flower set called brushed blossom.  I have used tim holtz water color inks on prima watercoloring paper, luv this textured paper. A few ink splatters using heidi swapps color shines...darlin. And, of course I had to use a little b&w stripped twine, I do luv me some b&w.....hope you have a fabulous weekend.

words with meaning - make today amazing!

simon says stamp/make for the border-shine


Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Welcome to the simon says stamp wednesday challenge, we are challenging you to make for the border challenge. The design team is spotlighting products from memory box, what an array of products they offer...check them out! Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!



I have created a border of butterflies, I created a watercolor splash using prima marketing confections ink pans. I then die cut the butterflies and added ink spritzing and a few eneamel dots. The background paper is a piece from a christmas pack called fancy pants oh deer. The shine sentiment is from the memory box set called words to live by.

words to live by - use your smile to change the world. don't let the world change your smile.

simon says stamp wednesday: make for the border
word art wednesday: anything uplifting goes



Let's go shopping!
