Simon Says … Let’s get sentimental



Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


Simply use a sentiment on your project ! There are so many fabulous sentiment stamps, dies, stencils, stickers etc that is is nice to let them take centre stage once in a while don’t you think ?

We are showcasing TIM HOLTZ 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’m not gonna lie, whenever I see the words “Tim Holtz” a wee shiver of fear goes down my spine, lol!  I struggle to make his products look as good as everyone else does, not sure what it is – I think it’s the whole “grungy” thing!  Anyhoo, I decided I could still do Clean and Simple and use a Tim Holtz stamp!  So I grabbed the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp May card kit and created a simple card using this lovely sentiment stamp.  If you haven’t seen this kit ye then I urge you to check it out.  I love getting the monthly kits, they are always so inspiring and great for when your mojo needs a kick up the bum!!
