♥ I Count Myself Lucky... ♥


...to be on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge DT! :) I really do! What a fabulous group of talented and sweet people! And we always have amazing challenges along with an even more amazing prize, every week! This week's challenge is every one's fave...Anything Goes!


This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusives! You don't have to use them on your creation, but if you have any, of course, we would love to see them! I used the August Card Kit for my card. This kit is one of my faves so far! Love the adorable stamp set, fun papers and the gorgeous colors! You can see other cards I made with this kit HERE.


I also used these amazing Simon Says Butterfly Dies called Leanna Butterfly and Chrissy Butterfly (solid). I also used some twine and Hero Arts Pearls. Do you see that pink paper in the background? It is cardstock that I embossed with the Simon Says Moroccan Stencil that comes with the kit and is also sold separately as well. I ran it through my Grand Calibur Machine and was surprised to see it actually embossed the paper! Very cool!  


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





Have a colorful day!
