Simon Says It's a Stitch Up ! :-)

Oh what a fabulous response to our recipe challenge last week :-) It seems you all like 'No Cook Recipes' :-) Thank you to everyone for your entries we really enjoyed coming to see them :-) Now ,, Do you like 'Sewing' too ?? :-) We are challenging you this week to
You can choose to get your sewing machine out,, hand sew or fake it and use a pen :-)

Before we show you the fabulous creations that the DT have made for your inspiration we have a few important things to tell you :-)

We have GRETA joining us in the Designer Spotlight. I would like you all to pop by her blog and leave her a comment. She has very kindly made 2 fabulous cards for us to show you this week, one with real sewing and one with faux !! Greta is only 11 years old and started cardmaking last October, she is really talented and plays the piano, competes in gymnastics and is a Girl Scout too ! Greta shares her blog with her mum Lisa who is also a very talented cardmaker :-)

The other BIG news to tell you is that Kim Piggot has agreed to join us on the Design Team :-) I am sure most, if not all of you have visited Cards By Kim and know what a fabulous designer she is :-)her card this week is form a previous posting but as it fits in with our theme we are posting it here for you to see :-) Welcome aboard Kim I am sure you will soon settle in :-)

Heidi, the owner of the Simon Says Stamp Store is once again giving one lucky winner a $25 shopping spree to her store and she will pay the postage too :-) The winner is always drawn at random using the random generator so you all have an equal chance. All we ask is that it is a new creation and that you mention our challenge in your posting :-)


diese Woche haben wir ein interessantes Thema für Euch:
Ihr sollt ein bischen auf Eurer Karte oder auf Eurem Werk "nähen"
Wir sind sehr gespannt was Euch so dazu einfällt.

Diese Woche haben wir auch wieder eine Gastdesignerin bei uns:
Und außerdem haben wir ein neues DT Mitglied:
Kim Piggot

Következő kihívásunk témája: "Varrás". Ezt alkotásaitokon kétféleképpen is alkalmazhatjátok: rendes varrással vagy csak rajzolt varrással. Heti vendégünk Greta. Greta egy 11 éves kislány, aki nagyon tehetséges a kártyakészítésben! 2 kártyát is készített a kihívásra, biztosan örülne neki ha ellátogatnátok blogjára és hagynátok neki egy megjegyzést!:)
Újabb DT tagot is üdvözölhetünk a csapatunkba, Kim Piggot-ot! Gyönyörű alkotásait blogján megnézhetitek, munkái bámulatosak!
Inspirációt meríthettek a DT tagok által készített alkotásokból is!..és tudjátok, blogjukra is érdemes ellátogatni, hisz nyeremények várnak rátok!
A nyeremény egy 25 dolláros utalvány, amit a Simon Says Stamp webáruházban lehet levásárolni. Jó alkotást és sok szerencsét kívánok!

El reto de esta semana se titula "Coser y cantar", y lo que os pedimos es que en vuestras creaciones mostréis puntadas de coser, ya sean reales o "falsas". Nuestra Diseñadora Invitada en esta ocasión es Greta, ¡que sólo tiene 11 años y empezó a hacer tarjetas el pasado octubre! Por favor, no olvidéis dejarle un comentario, estoy segura de que le hará muchísima ilusión.
También queremos anunciaros que... ¡Kim Piggot se une a nuestro Equipo de Diseño!. Seguramente muchas de vosotras ya la conocéis gracias a su increíble blog, "Cards by Kim".
Y como cada semana, nuestra querida Heidi, propietaria de la tienda Simon Says Stamp, ofrece como premio para la ganadora del reto un vale por 25 dólares de compra, con gastos de envío gratuitos. Además, nuevamente hay "candy" escondido en los blogs de algunas de las chicas del Eqiupo de Diseño, así que...¡id a buscarlo!
¡Buena suerte y estamos deseando ver vuestras creaciones con puntadas!

Dziękujemy bardzo za tak liczny udział w poprzednim wyzwaniu. Bardzo gorąco namawiamy Was do uczestnictwa w obecnym. Tematem jest szycie, czy to maszynowe, czy to ręczne, czy nawet zamarkowane namalowanym ściegiem. Dołączcie koniecznie do naszej zabawy!!! Atrakcyjna nagroda, jak co tydzień, czeka :) W tym tygodniu gościnnie wystąpiła na naszym blogu 11-letnia Greta. Chcemy się także z Wami podzielić nowiną - do naszego zespołu zgodziła się dołączyć Kim Piggot!!!
