A New Magnolia!!

This is Tilda from one of the 2015 set.
I made this card for lovely  hAnglAr or sweet Magnolia (LHOSM) Challenge but we have taking a summer break and will be back at the beginning of September.
This little Tilda seems to be pink  - when I look at an image for the first time it just shouts me as which colour it should be, the trouble is I can't use any other colour!!
Is it just me or or do other people get stuck in to same colour with a image!!
I've listed as may materials as I could.

 Hi all and welcome to another of our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers.


It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity :-) You are allowed to hide your Copic Markers and extra special papers and you are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to 'DO IT' themselves as much as possible :-)

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive.

We have not 1, not 2 but  3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon!

For this challenge we have a very special Junior Design Team who I am sure you will agree have done an excellent job.

 Less Is More is the Recipe week and we'd like you to use Snippets.
I've been clearing out many unused bits and pieces etc. so not sure what to use for this challenge. I did find a couple of these pre-cut out Hedgehogs which I had lost, so I made a couple more for the challenge  - then the previous ones turn up - like life does!!!
These are the Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs Clear Stamps and dies and I used the Simon Says Tri Square Die using Bazzill Butter Mint cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn set and I coloured a heart and used the Simon Says Holiday Shape Die. coloured with Copics and adds the Ranger Glossy Accenets which almost looks like a chocolate does't it??

Now I'm off to search for MoJo which has gone missing again!!!

Simon Says..................Anything Goes !!


Hi again everyone, our challenge is week is.........


We are showcasing PENNY BLACK 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

For my first card I chose the cute Penny Black's Strawberry Jam image. I knew exactly how I would design the card and the papers needed..........it didn't happen but this is the result.
I coloured the image with Copic Markers and used the papers with a combination of Studio Calco Sundrifter and Prima Marketing Princess

My second card is for Christmas, I have been putting this together for a while and growing this slowly and steadily.

My second card is for Christmas, having broken my arm at Christmas last year I was unable to sent cards - I couldn't even get cards into either envelopes or boxes......now I starting to have them all read!!!
This is the Penny Black About Town Die - I like this card (better IRL) and will used the usa the basic design for many Christmas cards.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
