Simon Says Lets Craft With Tim :-)

We have had a wonderful time seeing all your entries for the 'Animal' Challenge and thank you to all for joining us :-) We will be drawing a winner later today with Random.Org so good luck to all the entrants :-) We would also like to thank everyone for responding to our appeal, we had over our 100 entrants so thank you very much everyone :-)


We have an absolutely fabulous challenge for you this week !! We are going to get creative with Tim Holtz gorgeous products :-) If you don't have any you can still join in, just make something 'Inspired by Tim' He has made some awesome video's for you to see and you can see them here

We know that for some of you you may feel that this is a BIG challenge and difficult. But it isn't ! You can do cute cards not necessarily 'grunge' Just add a torn edge with some ink dabbed on and you can enter !! Or just add some glitter glue like stickles !! Probably every card anyone makes can be entered for this challenge ! AND YOU CAN COMBINE WITH AS MANY CHALLENGES AS YOU LIKE :-) So you have NO EXCUSE :-) Here is a slideshow of other creations by the DT for your inspiration for this challenge using different techniques and styles !

Heidi is once again offering a very generous prize of a $25 Shopping spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store but this week it is with a twist :-) You are to choose Tim Holtz goodies :-)

Also this week we have FINNABAIR In our Designer Spotlight :-) Finnabair is a designer on the Simon Says Stamp Brand DT, she has the most amazing blog filled with fantastic creations so if you haven't visited her yet you really should go, you shouldn't miss it !!
