Simon Says ... Children's Challenge :-)

Happy Easter Holidays to all of our children !! Time to PLAY !! :-)

Welcome to our first challenge dedicated to everyone between the ages on 2 and 16 ,,,, we thought 1 year olds may be a bit too young !! :-) We would like to encourage all you Mum's to let your children loose in your craft rooms ha ha :-)

The challenge is open for 2 weeks and will close at 10am GMT ( 9 am CET ) on Sunday 11th April


The theme is open so you can make whatever you like, cards, masks, bonnets, notebooks, anything you like, it does not even have to be Easter themed :-)

Heidi the owner of Simon Says Stamp will be giving a winner drawn at random, a $25 shopping spree to her store so you can choose whatever you like :-)

We have a lovely Design Team especially for this challenge and they have made these amazing creations for you to see :-)

JAX (AGE 2 and a half)

Jax is Heidi's son and he made this lovely elephant at pre school :-)


Connor is Jane's son and made this card all by himself except his mummy helped with poking the brads through :-) He is hoping for this many Easter eggs :-)

MOLLIE (Age 8)

Mollie is Jo's daughter and has obviously inherited her mum's talent !

GRETA (aged 13)

Greta has been a regular entrant to our challenges and was our first child Designer in the Spotlight ! her Mum is Lisa AKA ML Designworks :-) This card was coloured using her very own brand new copics !

SYDNEY (aged 9)

We would appreciate you taking the time to visit the blogs of the children and leave them a lovely comment :-) They have done a wonderful job as I am sure you would all agree :-)Just click on their name and it will take you straight to them ! :-)

Bah meant to add my son's name but mine is there instead. It's truly his project as there's no way in the world I'd have the patience to mess with those tiny tiny pieces of paper! He got a kick out of this so thanks!

What a fantastic idea!!! My son is 2 in August so he can't join but my sister is 15 so she only just can! She is making a card for my partner so I shall enter that for her when she is done!

My girls had so much fun making their cards! Both cards are posted in the same blog post so you´ll find the same link twice here. Hope that´s okay!

Wishing all of you a happy easter!
