♥ Simon Says...Anything Goes! ♥

♥ I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with loved ones! We had an extra special Christmas this year! My brother and sister-in-law from Italy is here with us for the holidays. So I hosted a Christmas Eve dinner with them as the honorary guests and then had Christmas Day yesterday with my Mom and Dad. Such a special time with loved ones. But I must admit, I am glad that the stress of shopping for the "right gift" is over!! :)

This week at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog we have an extra special challenge for you. It is "Anything Goes"! And the DT is showing you all the gifts that we made each other for our Secret Santa Gift Swap!

I made a little chippy house for fellow DT Cheiron. I decorated it with some beautiful Sheet Music Wrapping Paper by Kaiser as well as some fabulous papers and stickers by October Afternoon's, Make it Merry 12x12 Kit.

 I also used some Cashmere Dame Blue Polka Dot Washi Tape by Glitz, a Melissa Frances Resin Keyhole and Frame, May Arts Red and White Stripes Ribbon, Simon Says Stamp Holly Leaves with Berries, Martha Stewart Himalayan Snowflake Punch, White Opal Liquid Pearls, Hemptique Light Blue Hemp Twine and Vintage Hemp Twine and lots and lots of Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter.

Her house number is 25. Just perfect for a Christmas House!

I even made a little sign with her last name on it.

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

Have a wonderful week ahead!

Hi Melissa. I am sooooo sorry for my absence these last few months. Time has escaped me and we had 2 deaths in the family which have been difficult. But hopefully I am back on track in Blogland and will be about a bit more. I hope you had a fabulous family Christmas, it sounds like you had a lovely day. I love this project, it is so cute. Lee x

Just AMAZING CREATION!!! Your details are truly wonderful. Glad you all had a great Christmas and were blessed with relative from Italy. We had a fabulous time here and it even snowed on Christmas and on my birthday which was on the 21st. And last night and today we are getting "hit" with a big snowstorm. I am in upstate rural NY. LOVEEEEE snow. Guess we have somewhere around 8-10 inches and expecting more. Big smile here. Happy New Year to you and yours and may it be a blessed year with health and love. ekc
