SIMON SAYS......... LET'S GET HOPPING

Hello peeps,
I'm so sorry my blog hop post is late, I've only just come on line and hadn't realised there was a mix up with our publishing time & I then had problems trying to over ride my scheduled post grrrrrrr lol.

LETS GET HOPPING
For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays.

The Blog hop will finish on September 5th at 12 MN Ohio time (Sept 6th, 6 am CET, 5 am UK time) on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog.
The last stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the names of the 3 blogs with hidden treasure. The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers.
The theme for both challenges this week will be
You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!

You will need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave. If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs.
If you arrived here from the super talented 
 then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

This week our DT are showcasing CUTTLEBUG EMBOSSING FOLDERS, if you have them we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter the challenge.
I have used the Cuttlebug block hearts embossing folder on my card.

Today is my mum & Tony's wedding anniversary and my DT card is the one I have for them
Ingredients -
Sentiment -Magnolia
Flowers - Prima & stash
Ribbon - May Arts
Pin - homemade using Blue Moon pearls & beads from stash


 This is the fabulous prize our lovely Heidi is giving away to the lucky winner, I wish I could enter lol
Along the hop there are some $25 vouchers up for grabs on some of the DT blogs

There are also going to be lots of giveaways on the
so keep an eye out for them
I'll be back and enter some challenges later as I've not caught up with challenges yet from being poorly.
EDITED - I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Jelly Park Friends - punches, Just Magnolia - bingo (embossing, flowers, pins), Totally Gorjuss - as you like it, Magnolia Down Under - texture, Make It Monday - anything goes, Deep Ocean - hearts, Crafty Creations - punches & dies (MS punch around the page, MS frond leaf punch, 2 x nesties), Fab n Funky - embossing

Next on the hop is my lovely and super talented teamie the queen of shabby chic



Before I go I've a little plea.
Our lovely Jo has entered the La La Land contest and we'd love it if you'd support Jo & pop over and give our her your vote.
Here is Jo's beautiful card, click the pic to take you over to vote, Jo's card is number 17


Pretty please give our Jo your vote.

Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by
