Simon Says.........Stamp It!


Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

It's STAMPtember!  And our theme this week is "Stamp It!"

STAMPtember is a very special month on the Simon Says Stamp calendar and this week we are showcasing some of the latest STAMPtember products.  You may not yet have any of the new products, but we would appreciate your using Simon's Exclusive Products if you have them, although it isn't necessary to join in with the challenge.
I was thrilled to receive this labrador die!  Although both my husband and I had dogs growing up, we have had only 1 dog in our marriage, a yellow lab mix that we named Brandy.   Brandy lived to be 16, and was spoiled rotten!  I cut this die out in colors that most look like his coloring, and gave his head that tilt that was so endearing.  His scarf is not part of the die - I added that myself - you'll see why as you keep scrolling.

supplies: cream, beige, kraft, dark brown, black, and Schoolhouse Red cardstock, MFT Watercolor Wash Brights dp (blue), Doodlebug Gingham paper pad, Tim Holtz adhesive cork, Simon's Picture Book Labrador die, punched hearts, sentiment from Newton's Nook Fetching Friendship, innermost ovals from Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame

Here's an old snapshot of our boy.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

we'd just 9 months ago broken down and added a fur baby (Barkley) to our midst again ... after losing our 14-year old yellow lab, Nugget... and I can't tell you how much joy he's brought into the household! Brandy was adorable, and so handsome in his kerchief!
