Simon Says 1st Challenge :-).

Hi everyone and welcome to our 1st Challenge :-)


This Challenge will remain open until the next one is posted on the 15th April.

We thought that as this is the first one the challenge blog owners should choose the colour theme. Heidi's favourite colours are

"YELLOW AND GREEN"

To celebrate the launch of this new challenge blog Heidi and Jason have generously offered a fabulous prize of a $20 GIFT CERTIFICATE to spend in the simonsaysstamp.com store to a winner chosen at random from the entries :-)

So Simon Says he would like you to make something using those colours, though you can add other colours too ! You can make anything you like, a card, ATC, altered art, anything you like :-)
Please see the challenge rules on the sidebar too.
When you have made it leave a link on this post and we will come along and see your creations :-)

The blog candy closes this evening so if you haven't already entered you'd better be quick and leave your comment on the blog candy post !

The DT have made some cards for you to see and maybe give you a little inspiration, please take the time to visit their blogs and leave them a comment :-)

A Time of Thanks!

Hi! My name is Heidi and I manage a team of folks who operate Simon Says Stamp Store at www.SimonSaysStamp.com!

Delightfully, Lorraine has created and is managing this Challenge Blog for us, and I need to take a moment to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Lorraine and her fabulous team! The response to the new challenge blog has been overwhelming and makes my heart dance with joy.

My heart is dancing because the challenge blog is bringing us stamping folks all together! It's truly a team. The purpose of this blog is to showcase our talents and bring a place for us to all join in community. Stamping and paper crafting is something we all have in common, a passion to share and spread the love among each other.

Please know that each of your works is valuable! It is an inspiring event to share art with a fellow. This challenge blog welcomes folks from all over the world and pictures are worth a thousand words! From Malta, to the UK, to Australia to the USA, Poland, Canada, Germany, all corners of this globe, we are all passionate about what we do.

Please take the opportunity to participate whenever you have the time. We have lots of goodies in our store to give away, to inspire, to share with you all. It is my fullest intention to spread the love in any way that I can.

Thanks Lorraine! Thanks Chris (oh my dear friend Chris!), Thanks Domi, Thanks Jo Boots! Thanks Debby! Thanks Timea! and Thank you Iris! Our Simon Says Stamp office and warehouse team extends hugs and smiles to you for all of your creativity and hard work! Kudos!

To the challenge blog participants, YOU ARE IN FOR QUITE A RIDE! I have seen previews of the Design Team works to post this week and they are simply amazing! Each gal has completely outdone herself with creativity and color and detailed work to inspire us all. Please stop back soon and see the artwork unfold before your eyes....

In rubber hugs, and smiles from ear to ear,
Heidi & the whole Simon team!
