♥ The Best Things in Life aren't Things ♥

Yay! It's Wednesday people!! Half way to the weekend! And today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog, it's everyone's favorite challenge...ANYTHING GOES!!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Hero Arts! Love this 'The Best Things' Wood Stamp by Lia Griffith for Hero Arts. Such a great sentiment!

I used the Shades of Gray Cardstock Pack, Moonshine Sequins and Stitched Circles Dies by Simon Says Stamp. The papers are from the 6x6 Yesterday Paper Pad by Carta Bella. I finished off the card with some May Arts Natural Twine and a Hero Arts Pearl.

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!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

And...the kids still have some time left to join the super fun Kids Summer Vacation Challenge! It's Anything Goes and it's open to kids from ages 2-16! There will be not 1 but 3 prizes given away!! :)


And, last but not least, STAMPtember® is right around the corner!! Just wait until you see all the new goodies that will be released!! And there will be awesome challenges, great sales and a Blog Hop!! :)

And that sentiment "The Best Things in Life Aren't Things" certainly rang true for us! On Sunday we had a bit of a scare. My son, Antonio, whose 9, was bitten in the back, twice, by the neighbors German Shepherd. Thankfully he is ok and the dog is up to date with all of his shots. Very scary though!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Love the way you used the circles on the card. Poor Antonio ... but he will have a great topic for a personal narrative writing project. (Can you tell that I am a teacher?)
