The Wendy Vecchi Style!

100_5449(1)Do I look stressed to you? That is because I am! It is now 3:42am … my internet has been down for hours … I have had umpteen conversations with BT … I finally gave up trying to blog this week’s Simon Says Stamp challenge at about 3am … called me mate Dan … bit of a night owl is Dan … I did n’t wake him up honest … then … Internet came back on! Phew!
So I am now typing at a ridiculous hour in the morning … the birds are already singing and I am a tad concerned how I will function on approximately 3 hours sleep … Hey-Ho!100_5455(1)
Anyways … this week’s challenge theme is Simon Says Stamp and Show Some Wendy Vecchi Style! I had a lovely time filling my 7Gypsies Printers tray with The Wendy Vecchi Art Parts and stamps.  Not forgetting Lord Tim of Holtz’s Idea-ology … you know Tim … the man that can function for a whole lifetime with no slee100_5448(1)p while talking to all the animals with just a Sprocket Gear and a Game piece.
Our Challenge sponsor Simon Says Stamp has donated another $50 shopping spree … so do join in if you get time … the winner could be you!

Okay then people … I am going to leave it there for now … I desperately need my bed … I will pop back in the morning to load a few more detailed pictures and answer any questions you may have … I will tell you the whole project is coloured using only Fired Brick and Brushed Corduroy Distress Inks …
I am back ... normal service is now resumed ... I am a tad lethargic this morning after such a small amount of sleep ... I have to admit my 7.30am breakfast duty was very difficult ... I put forks and spoons out instead of spoons and knives and bless my language students ... they used forks on the butter and the marmalade ... probably think it is some strange English thing :0)
I was going to give you all the details regarding my tray ... but I did n't do such a bad job in the wee hours after all! So I have just uploaded a couple more pictures and now I am away to make stuff!
I hope you have a great week!
Laters!

Amazing - as usual! The colour palette you've used and the elements you've attached are fab. I've had my eye on this tray in the craft shop where I work for a while - seeing it like this, I think I might be using my staff discount some time soon ...

OH! I wish I could participate, I don't have any Simon Says Stamps...I am laughing hysterically at Lord Tim who keeps peeking out the side of my computer screen! I thought it was my imagination until I scrolled down. Very funny!

Good grief, Linda. I'm just catching up on my blogging. Sounds like you had a miserable time with the post this week. Hope you have caught up on your sleep by now!

Your project this week is absolutely fabulous. Really looks like it was a joy to make. I love the colors - i'm a red lover and your rich, saturated red is just luscious!
