Simon Says: Thanks/Thanksgiving

wed-newchallenge-header

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

I got home yesterday evening after a fabulous trip to Simon Says Stamp. It was an action packed and fun filled 3 weeks! I got to meet so many people at the CREATE event, it was AWESOME!! On the way home I stopped off for a couple of days in London and got to spend some time with my son, Sean, my parents, my brother and his partner. It was a perfect end to a perfect trip :-)

Thanks Heidi, Jason and all at Simon Says Stamp, I am missing you all LOTS XXX 

This week the challenge is

THANKS/THANKSGIVING 

It will be Thanksgiving in America in a couple of weeks, a time to count our blessings and be grateful for our lovely family and friends.
 Life moves along so quickly and now is the time to stop and think of all of the good things in our lives. 

We are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive 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 used Stitched PumpkinsSmall Chevron Stripes and Thanks Craft Dies

I stamped the background using a Stampendous 'Wired' Cling Stamp inked with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
For the Stitched Pumpkins I used Watercolor paper and smooched the pumpkins into a puddle of Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks. I love the effect of this for the pumpkins, makes them less 'perfect' and more 'real' don't you think ;-)


So now it's YOUR turn!

Great colour and texture combo you've chosen for your card! Even the little details make this card a whole - if you get what I mean :)
