The pretty Heart Wreath die is one of Simon's exclusive dies which unfortunately I couldn't find to link up to but there are plenty of lovely alternatives HERE
As you can see I was in a distressing kind of mood when  created this card & really didn't know where I was going with this card until it somehow happened lol.

Use Plaid! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I have been inundated with card orders the past couple of weeks, suddenly lots of people are either getting married or having babies! One more to go & I am giving myself some time off of creating commissioned cards & focusing on making whatever takes my fancy :)


It's Wednesday which means -

& this week our challenge is -
USE PLAID!

& this week the design team are featuring
Lawn Fawn logo

Today's card features three different Lawn Fawn products, the Let It Snow border die, Perfectly Plaid 6x6 Winter Paper Pack & the Home For The Holiday's Stamp Set. 
I have combined these with a lovely Snowfall embossing folder & some of Simon's pretty Stitched Snowflakes.
The little cars from the Home For The Holiday's stamp set have been popped onto foam tape to add a little dimension.
I am trying to be organised this year & making some "flat" Christmas cards to keep the postage costs down as I spend a fortune every Christmas on posting cards.

Summer Sunshine - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I really didn't think I was going to be able to create a DT card for this weeks challenge as I was suffering with a complete lack of mojo & wasted hours in my craft room just sighing and achieving absolutely nothing!

It didn't help that not only did I have my DT card to create but also some commissioned cards & a card for a TV show and all have deadlines looming! I hate it when I have time to create but a complete crafters block! Thankfully it doesn't happen very often & to kick start my mojo after I had struggled with my DT card I abandoned all the other cards I need to create and made a couple of cards just because I felt like it which I am hoping has done the trick!


It's Wednesday which means -

& this week our challenge is -
SUMMER SUNSHINE

Today's card features several lovely Simon Says Stamp own brand exclusive products & I have again used that lovely 3 Sided Scallop Die from Simon's new One Of A Kind release to make my base card.
I love this cute little Simon Stamp which I coloured & fussy cut before adding to my card. The tag was water coloured and I added a few "splats" of copic opaque which I simply flicked onto the tag and then blotted and left to dry.
I think little Simon is definitely Summer sunshine ready lol.
