This week the challenge is


Spring will soon be here and our gardens will be buzzing with bees, butterflies, birds and all sorts of little insects. It is also at around this time of year that our thoughts turn to summer vacations and flying away to sunny locations ! There are so many options that you can use for this challenge !

We are showcasing AMERICAN CRAFTS PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I was inspired by the gorgeous black and yellow colour scheme in the March Simon Says Stamp kit so started with that by pulling out some card and polka dot patterned paper and of course the FABULOUS border die!  I’ve also been DIE-ing (geddit) to play with the Kite shaker die from the Hop To It release which of course ties in beautifully with our “Things That Fly” challenge theme.  I used some American Crafts twine to create the tail of the kite and filled the kite shaker with some white sequins.  After waiting for it on backorder I just got my Wishing sentiments stamps and dies and thought the font went perfectly with the kite theme.
