Simon Says........Anything Goes......with twine or string!


It's the end of the month, and that means an Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

We're changing things up a tiny bit with our Anything Goes challenges this year, and adding in an extra requirement.  This time we ask you to add twine or string to your creation.  The design team this week are using Mama Elephant products.  You're free to use anything you'd like, of course, as long as you include some twine or string somewhere on your design.

I knew just what stamp set I wanted to play with: Water Blooms!  And my card turned out just as I envisioned it!

SSS Jan 29 Mama Elephant & twine

I made a little bouquet of flowers using Hero Arts bubble gum, cornflower blue, and green hills inks, and added Doodlebug Designs Doodle Twine in cupcake and limeade.  I love this sentiment - it's something my youngest sister used to say to my Mom when she first was out on her own!

Now it's your turn - Heidi has provided us with another gift voucher for $50.00, to be given to the random winner of our challenge!


With all the new things coming out soon from CHA, I know you all could use it for some fun things at the Simon Says Stamp store!
