Sponsored by...
Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre.  Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side,  The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves.

Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and this week the challenge is...........

Anything Goes

We are showcasing MEMORY BOX PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in with the challenge, but if you have them 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

We are showcasing MEMORY BOX PRODUCTS this week, I am using their Pinpoint Rectangle Layers and Kitty Cat Face Poppy Stamp

I just fell in love with this cute Memory Box Kitty Cat Face Poppy Stamp image - I made two, one and plus one in reverse!! I do think the first one with white on dark background is more impressive, perhaps as I have coloured the eyes look more realistic, I will work on creating better eyes on the second one!!

I have used the Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle Layers to create both the images along with the Simon Says Stamp Sending and Wishing and Tim Holtz Artistry Just Sayings.
