Simon Says Blog Hop

Hello Friends, Over at Simon Says Stamps Challenge they are having a BLOG HOP in celebration of the new members of the DT. I hopped around on Weds & Thurs and I must say it was great fun, the Design Team cards are just to die for. Every one of their creations are delicious, the theme this week is a recipe of 2 papers- 3 embellishments and 1 Image.

The cherry on the cake is that there are some fantastic prizes to be won, Heidi will be drawing the winner next Thursday so you still have plenty of time to enter. Just click on the link and hey presto you are there.

I think just about everything on this card is new. I was feeling a bit yucky over the weekend and come Tuesday I was climbing the walls - I needed some fresh air and a browse - where did I go - yes you've guessed - my local craft shop!!! well they were having a sale!!! I bought this gorgeous little stamp designed by Hetty Meeuwsen. There are 4 in the collection, I'll show you the other one that I bought in the morning.

I've used two of my new Martha Stewart punches, the butterfly punch and the small flower punch, I bought them on line along with 6 others, well they were on special offer.!! My little tea roses came from Wild Orchid Crafts, and my papers are from My mind's Eye.

My large flower is handmade by me!! I am so proud of it, I bought some beautiful glittery paper flowers pre Christmas made by K&co, but they were quite expensive so I decided to try and make my own. After a few miserable attempts I got the knack of it and after folding my paper like we used to do in school many years ago it worked. I then used my scallop scissors on the ends of the paper to get the effect I wanted. I also added some stickles to give it a bit of glitz. I'm really pleased how it turned out.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit, I hope you will come back and see me again soon.

Hugs Suzi xx
