Simon Says.........Happy Birthday!

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog!

Our theme this week is Birthdays, and, by the way, it's our 7th Birthday!  The design team are all using Simon exclusive products, and we'd love it if you would, too, but it's not a necessity to enter.


supplies: white cardstock, Simon Birthday Flowers, Jellybean, Hero Arts Bubble Gum, Cornflower, Altenew Deep Iris, and Warm Sunshine inks, Simon Stitched Circles die

Since my first card is so feminine, I made another that is a little less so, more generic:

SSS April 6

supplies: white and black cardstock, various My Favorite Things design papers, Simon Happy Birthday and Celebration Time dies, stamped sentiment from retired Cupcake Party clear stamp set, white twine

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  In honor of our birthday, sweet Heidi has provided SEVEN $50.00 gift vouchers
