Monday ... Already!

SSSa2803 Yup ... it is Monday already ... dunno where last week went ... or most of the weeks this year really ... but they appear to be going at an alarming speed!

Monday means a new theme at Simon Says Stamp and Show and this week it is hats! My sample was a long time in the making and to be honest ... I am not at all happy with it ... but I ran out of tweaking time ... so this is it!

I have mainly used THE Wendy Vecchi Art Parts and THE Wendy Vecchi stamps ... I have also included a couple of bits of Lord Tim of Holtz Tissue Tape and Idea-ology! You know Tim ... the man that can right all the wrongs in the world while saving nigh on extinct reptiles in the Amazon with just a jump ring and a single letter doodad!SSS2803

Went to the NEC yesterday with the lovely Karen and have to admit to being a tad disappointed by the repetition of product in the stamping bit! I pulled my long sulky ... I don't wanna go face when the lovely Karen dragged me into the fabrics and textiles hall ... but OH MY GOODNESS ... Yummy or what! So much colour and texture all in one place ... LOVED it! There was even a marquee sized knitted aquarium ... mind boggling! I bought stuff to sew ... and I can't even sew ... that's how good it was!

So ... are you going to join in with the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week? There is a $50 shopping spree up for grabs ... Thanks to the lovely people at Simon Says Stamp.

I am off to bed ... just hoping I have calculated the change in time zones correctly!

Hi Linda, love your creation it's brilliant.

Went to the NEC on Sat and met up with the lovely kath, said hi to Leandra, I agree the hobbycrafts were a tad disapointing, but the sewing section was mind boggling, makes me want to get my sewing machine out again.

Big Hugs Carol xxx

This is fabulous! I know sometimes when I work on something for a long time I end up not liking it at first. The stand covered in houndstooth is terrific and home is a great place to hang your gorgeous hat! Love it - cheers!
