♥ Simon Says...All Things Bright and Beautiful ♥

Hi there! We are back from our Ski Vacation in Vermont! We had an amazing time! Love it up there!! Our 8 yr old finally got his own pair of skis. So he is happy. No more rentals for him! :)

Today starts a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want to see... All Things Bright and Beautiful! Nice cheerful and bright colors! :)

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Hero Arts! I chose this super cute clear stamp set called Chalkboard Birthday which this was an exclusive Hero Arts collaboration to celebrate Stamptember®. I stamped the image using several different inks from the Hero Arts Hello You Mini Ink Pad Set in Neon Red, Bubble Gum, Orange Soda and Butter Bar. 

I also used some Hero Arts Diamond Gems and White Pearls.

The papers are from the Love Notes 6x6 Paper Pad by We R Memory Keepers. I also used half of a paper doily, hand dyed seam binding ribbon, a satin rose and some May Arts Natural Twine.

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 wonderful day!

Beautiful card, love the chalkboard stamp and inks you use. Sounds like you had fun on your trip. I have had a little bug the last few days, and not felt so well. I am glad you are all ok there. I just wanted you to know that I love coming by your blog and seeing your adorable creations, and on Wednesdays I enjoy looking for your card of inspiration on the SS Blog. Thanks also for the kind comment you left on my blog the other day, it's always nice to hear from you. Have a great day.
