Guess Who Picked This Theme :0)

SSS51508

Okay ... yeah I know ... it was pretty obvious ... and yes it was me! The theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is indeed Stamp and Show your ... THE Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 style! Now before you start groaning and saying you can't take part ... trust me ... you can ... half of the DT did n't have a Wendy Stamp to their name and NO ... I was n't sharing mine :0) ... so they managed with just what they had in their stash ... please go look ... it truly is quite amazing!SSS31508

Thank you to all you lovely people that joined in last week ... you did me proud everyone and I am truly very grateful!

We have another fabulous prize this week donated by Simon Says Stamp and don't forget that much sought after top three blinkie!

I totally indulged myself with this challenge too ... I took inspiration from The Wendy Vecchi's Stamp Binder covers and made my own ... Not a Distress Ink in sight!!! Oh no ... and don't Adirondack inks work a treat on the Grungepaper. The backing paper is Retro Grunge SSS61508 from Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can sleep on a cloud while playing the harp along side the other angels with just a Watermark Resist Pad and a Inkssentials gel pen ... in white of course!

So ... tell me ... what sort of week do you have lined up??? I am off for a weekend away to Sunny Hunny ... looking forward to that I can tell you ... it's been ages since I have had hot doughnuts by the Sea!

Oh ... and I did n't come back with me shopping yesterday ... because apart from a few spacer beads I bought exactly ... erm ... zilch!

Have a good one people ... laters!

What a wonderful cover Linda. It's a stunner (as all your makes are). I'm now the proud owner of TWO sets of Mrs V stamps so I think that requires a cover don't you, Lol!

I must look at Wendy stamps - if you say they are the bees knees - they must be!

My sister, mother and I were all at Stevenage yesterday and I was sorry to have just missed you at LB Craft's stall.
I was talking to Karen about classes that you teach and the possibility of signing up sometime.

Anyway, we came away with some goodies and some fantastic ideas that we hope to put into practice some time soon.

Hope to meet you some other time.

Hellooooooooo. *Big waves* Do you know I just spent a week at the seaside and didn't have a single hot donut? *Polishes halo* We wont mention all the Morrissons donuts and the Beefeater meal and the ahem, chippies on the beach though... *hides halo in shame*

Love this binder cover, the colours are as usual vay gorgeous. They do look a lot like the distress inks, I wouldn't have known they weren't if you hadn't said!

Sid said...

Sarah A said...

Hi Linda

Great cover and I love the bright colours! I did have a mini panic about not being able to join in this week due to my lack of Wendy V stamps... but yay I can improvise with what I have!!

What a challenge. I laughed when I saw it.

That is my DH's name. LOL
Like your creations!

Linda64 said...

Beautiful creation Linda. I had a look at Wendy Vecchi's blog and her work is georgeous. I can fully understand why you love her work. But it sure looks difficult. I'm so glad I'm attending your some of your classes at PACS this year. So then next time a challenge like this pops up I can attend ;-)
Hugs, Linda
