Simon Says......Merry Christmas!

It's almost here!  Are you ready?   I hope so, so you can play in our challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

This week you can make anything that has to do with Christmas.  The design Team is using Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies and stamps, and we'd love to see yours, also, but they're not a necessity as long as you make us something Christmas-related.  Here's what I did this week:

SSS Dec 19 Merry Christmas

I used 2 dies from Simon Says Stamp: Small Forest Tree as a branch, and Holiday Shapes hanging from some twine tied to it.  The background paper is from the Aspen Frost pad.  This whole card is full of die-cuts: the chipboard Merry art part, the Wplus9 snowflakes, and the Memory Box Perched Reed Bird, cut from red glitter paper.

As always, Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store.

Will it be yours this week?  You can't win it if you don't play!  Ho Ho Ho!!
