Celebrating Mondays!

Happy Birthday to us!! We are celebrating the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, and I bet you can guess how many years! Yes, 7!!

Please join me in welcoming Simona Rebecchi, aka Ginny and the Sheep as our Guest Designer this month! I know you are going to enjoy her creativity!! We are so happy to have you with us, Simona!

If you have kids, grands, nieces, nephews, neighbors between the ages of 2 and 16, we have a special summer challenge just for them this month!

Can you believe it?! 7 years - I think that is exciting!! I decided to make a celebration card.

I started off by stamping the Kaleidoscope Background stamp from Simon's new release - Encouraging Words. Next, I added Distress Oxides and spritzed it with water. I let that dry and then went back in and blended a bit more. I also used the oxide inks on the ruler ribbon. As you can see, I did a bit of stitching too!

And here is why you should ALWAYS check what your word looks like before you add ink and stamp!! LOL!

I dug through my stash and found as many sevens as I could and arranged them in a cluster along with my words. I added some Rainbow Unicorn bling from 28 Lilac Lane to finish it off. Aren't these colors luscious?

I stamped the MONDAY to the bottom in pink, and then added a secondary stamping of blue to make a shadow. I'm not sure if it looks like a shadow, or double vision!

So please come join us in celebrating our 7 years!! Think Happy Birthday, and show us your Simon Says Stamp products if you have them. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

Simon Says Stamp is offering TWO $50 gift certificates, drawn at random.
