Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge!

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas yesterday! Today we're celebrating with my hubby's side of the family and he's the oldest of 8 so it's always a big group. :)

I'm also back with another Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!!

This week's challenge a fan favourite: Anything Goes! Some of us design team members are using Hemptique twine. They have lots of neutral (as well as fun) colors to chose from. :) This challenge was an extra fun one to work on because us design team members each made a Christmas gift for one of the other sweet ladies on the team. I made a gift for the super talented Mandy and this is what I made for her:


I used Hemptique twine for my bows and to thread my buttons. I wish I could tell you were you could find the little lunch box. It was something I've had for a few years just waiting to be decorated. I filled it with some crafty things that I hope Mandy will like.

This is what I used to make my project:

I hope you'll join us in this week's challenge! Up for grabs is a $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store thanks to sweet Heidi! For all the details and to see what the other designers have come up with please visit HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
