Simon Says ...

I know ... I know ... I only ever appear here on a Monday just lately ... so I am probably just talking to myself right now ... sorry!!!
This week there is sadness over at Simon Says Stamp and Show! After nearly a year of challenges and a lot of hardwork and inspiration from Lori; Nancy and Kim we are saying goodbye to them. They are all moving on to spend more time on other things and I am going to miss them very much!
Not all bad news though ... this also means we have a Design Team call for some new members ... so if you fancy it ... hot foot it over to the blog to see all the details!
There is of course a new theme for those of you that just want to carry on playing along this week and the theme is Embossing. Once again Simon Says Stamp have donated a $50 shopping spree ... handed out randomly ... you gotta be innit to winnit!
I have to put my hands up and admit I made this piece some time ago and picked the theme to coincide with the canvas ... not the other way around! The truth is I knew I would probably have a lot on this weekend and in my defence ... only a sneaky peek of the project has been shown on the blog before!
I have used my much loved Lord Tim of Holtz birdcage die ... you know Tim ... the man that can float like a butterfly while stinging like a bee with just a teensy bit of black enamel accents and a jump ring. I also LOVE the way that THE Wendy Vecchi's leaf stamp looks cut of out Ten Second Studio metal.
Right ... I must away ... I have a whole three pages of to do list ... I may be some time ... but I do promise to put in an appearance before next Monday of anyone is still looking in!
