Simon Says ...

Oops!! Did I really say "I faithfully promise to blog " more than once last week! Doh! It is not good news when you have to start a whole new week with an apology ... but Sorry anyways guys ... note to self ... must try harder!
I really have no clue where all my time is going ... I am making lots of bits and bobs and planning a possible paddle in the online class waters ... which really won't work if I don't keep this blog up to date now will it???
Okay ... it is Monday ... I think I had probably already established that ... hey ho! A new week means a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show and this week the theme is Stripes! I realise there will be a whole Are they Stripes??? debate going on in blogland but the truth is ... I stamped the lines ... planned to doodle in alternate ones to make them more stripey and then got waylayed creating butterflies with Lord Tim of Holtz's Grungepaper and before you know it ... monotone stripes! You know Tim ... the man that can single handedly beat France in the Rugby World Cup final while sheltering a plague of ants from a monsoon with just a blob of Glossy Accents and a Fired Brick Distress ReInker.
All stamps are indeed THE Wendy Vecchi and once again there is a $50 Gift Voucher up for grabs if you enter the challenge... donated by the A-Mazing peeps at Simon Says Stamp ...
What you waiting for :0)
Laters!

Very cool. Your stripes are definitely there and I can see why the butterflies were calling to you.

Ah yes, you should really under promise and over deliver! But we're always happy when you do blog, because you give us gorgeous pieces like this. I really appreciate your stripes. The fact that they're stripes of identical colours is really cool!
