Simon Says.........Create with Critters!


It's Wednesday and that means a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

My teamies and I are playing with Lawn Fawn products this week.

My first card is a result of reminiscing with my sisters at Christmas about our fabulous sled-riding track my Dad made for us.  We lived on 2 acres out in the country, and he cleared the trees to the top of the highest hill so that we had a huge long ride from there to the street we lived on.  What I wouldn't give to do that one more time!  Joy indeed!

supplies: white cardstock, Doodlebug dp, Lawn Fawn Winter Bunny and Home Sweet Home clear stamps (birds), markers to color, Hero Arts Snow Much Joy sentiment, Hero Arts Red Royal ink, DieNamics Snow Drift die, Taylored Expressions Birch Tree cutting plate

There are so many cute critters made by Lawn Fawn; however, at the time I was shopping for this challenge (right after Black Friday), all of my favorites were out of stock, so I used this older set that contains butterflies for my second card.

supplies: white cardstock, dps from 2 Lawn Fawn Let's Polka pads and Simple Stories DIY Boutique (stripe in background), Lawn Fawn Flutter By, Avery Elle Brushed, Wplus9 Little Piggy, Ranger Lemon Twist, mowed lawn distress, and Simon Audrey Blue inks, Spectrum Noir colored pencils, and various sequins to match butterflies

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you make!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store for one lucky random winner of our challenge!
