Simon Says ...

Okay people ... this week I am going to faithfully promise to blog more than just once! I have no idea what is occurring ... but time appears to be flying by at a rate of nots ... you know like not crafting ... not blogging ... see what I did there??? Huh??? Did ya???
Anyways ... I have had the most amazing weekend ... Friday ... I got to see me old Ranger U mate Dina Wakley for dinner ... with a whole group of other lovely friends too ... and then on Saturday ... I got to do a class with her ... it was A-mazing ... I learned heaps about colour and had a great time ... if you promise to be good ... I may even show you what I made!
Now to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge ... the theme this week is Things with Wings and I have gone Grungepaper and THE Wendy Vecchi stamp mad! Obviously I needed something with wings too ... so I grabbed me Lord Tim of Holtz Mover and Shaper Die and a bit of Distress Stain. You know Tim ... the man that could win the Rugby World Cup single handedly while rescuing a million ants from a rather large expanse of water with just a Paper Piercing Tool and a spritz of Perfect Pearls Mist!
As is always the case ... if you find time to join us with the challenge ... you could win a $50 Gift Voucher to spend online at Simon Says Stamp.
I must away ... I have a pile of ironing that is beginning to look like the leaning tower of Pisa. Have a great week everyone!
Laters!
