Simon Says Hop!!!

No ... not on one leg like that ... this is waaaaaaay more exciting ... it's a blog hop!
If you have come across me first then you need to go to Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog right this very second to find out how you can win a $100 Simon Says Stamp voucher!

If you have already seen all the details and are currently joining in with the hop ... then the letter you want from little ole me is H.

And now you need to leave a comment on this post and visit Dan for your next clue!
My project is a 7Gypsies tray .... filled to the rafters with Lord Tim of Holtz Halloween stamps ... you know Tim ... the man can stand on one toe on the top of Mount Everest while constructing a 1/8" scale model of the Statue of Liberty with just a smidge of white enamel accents and a craft knife.
There are also a few of THE Wendy Vecchi stamps thrown in for good measure!


I have used lots of Glossy Accents ... a Maya Road banner ... Timmy's market place letters ... Rusty Hinge, Old Paper and Dusty Concord Distress Ink ... but I am guessing you'll wanna know about this ...





The candy that I have chosen as my giveaway is ... Ta da ...
archivalinkcoffee
You can never have enough Coffee archival ink ... THE Wendy Vecchi taught me that :0) So you get a re-inker too!
If you want to know anything else about the tray ... let me know ... Have fun y'all ...
Laters!

Wow, I love your work using the 7gypsies tray! I love all of the purple, and I can pick out the different stamps. I am taking a class in October with Wendy Vecchi in MD, it is a ranger technique tag class...yes, I am super excited! I was trying to read more about her...but I saw a few of her samples at the store and they were amazing. Thank you for sharing your project! Wishing you all the best.

Thanks, Katie (I should be No. 256)
