Simon Says Stamp Holiday Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Blog Hop!

First off, here's the'official' info from the boss, that you all need to know ... (:-P Steph! )

For the first time ever we are joining forces with our challenge blogs;

Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge to bring you a SUPER hop to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays and the crafting fun you can have throughout!

To help celebrate we will be giving a $100 SHOPPING SPREE to the winner of this hop!

The theme for both challenges this week will be HOLIDAY FUN. Your entry can be Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas themed. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!

At each Design Team member’s blog you will find a clue, you need to collect all the clues to form a code. The complete code will be your password to enter the Grand Prize draw. At each blog you will need to leave a comment and on the last blog you must leave a direct link to the project you have made for this challenge. The Blog hop will start at 3:00 PM UK time on September 8th, 2010 at the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog and will finish on September 15th, 2010 at 10:00 AM UK time on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. During the hop you will visit all of the Design Team member’s blogs and each blog will tell you where to go next for the following clue! 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 and Show … just remember you need to keep the clues in the correct order. Once you have made your project and linked it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog you need to comment your link number together with the correct code in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog under the comments section of that week in order to be entered into the draw.

Added bonus! You will have a chance to win goodies from each HOP! Each DT member will be giving away an ingredient to make their creation, so don’t forget to comment throughout your hop!

The winner will be randomly drawn from all the correct answers for the Grand Prize next Wednesday. Remember you must have entered the Challenge and completed the blog hop to be eligible to win this $100 SHOPPING SPREE- courtesy of Simon Says Stamp Store!!

Good Luck Everyone!


So, here's my little project to celebrate this cool event! It's quite challenging to combine vintage with cutesy and festive, but hopefully this fits the bill. You all know I'm not a Christmas fan, however I am a snow fan, so I've gone with that :-) . The weather has been absolutely ridiculous today so the photos are not the best, however I promise that between the Glimmer Mist and the Stardust, this is a VERY sparkly card. Possibly too sparkly, I went slightly overboard due to excessive sugar consumption last night :-P .

Products used: Graphic 45 Le Romantique Collection, Brushed Cordoroy Distress Inks, Stardust Stickles. Tim Holtz Tonic Paper Distresser, Hero Arts Art Flowers, Prima Flowers, Red Velvet Glimmer Mist, Maya Road Crystal Star Trinket Pins, Hero Art Pearls, Lace from English market. Image is painted using watercolour paints and Glimmer Mist :)

I'm running low on lace... better get back to the UK to stock up on more :-)

Anyway, you guys are probably looking for a clue from me... and it is..... I am not telling you. Figure it out yourselves :-P.

You next stop on the hop is my very talented Teamie KIM..... Click HERE to visit her inspirational blog!!
Oh.. and one last thing.. I have a little gift to give away to one lucky visitor today, courtesy of event sponsors Simon Says Stamp .... and it is.....
A bottle of Red Velvet Glimmer Mist... so that you too can look like you've cut your fingers when you get it all over your hands misting flowers like I did last night :-)
It is not a requirement to become a follower to be eligible for this prize. Please only do so if you like my work and will visit again :-)
Please leave a comment at the end of this post to be in the draw. I will select a winner using random.org upon completion of the blog hop.
Thanks for stopping by and be happy!
