Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

I hope you've been having an enjoyable summer! Last summer we made it out to the beach more times than I think my kids have been in all their previous summers combined! It's still early in the season so we'll have to see how this summer will compare. ;)


Speaking of beaches, this week's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog is By the Sea and the design team is featuring product by Fancy Pants.

Here's my card:

When I saw that this week's challenge was to use Fancy Pants I knew I wanted to get my hands on some more of their decorative envelopes since I'd had so much fun playing with the ones that came with the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit. (See HERE, HERE, and HERE). I also picked up some fun Fancy Pants tags to use on today's card.


...and here are some links to more fun Fancy Pants tags, bags, and envelopes that coordinate with their line of papers and other various embellishments:

I hope you'll join us for 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 check out the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog HERE.


Before I go, I just wanted to let you know about THIS POST from early today...just in case you missed it. ;)

And have seen THIS! Simon Says Stamp is having a HUGE 2 day 50% off sale on ALL Becky Higgins Project Life! The sale runs July 17th and 18th. I just placed my order. :) ***

Great gift bag. I'm loving the whale and the whole water theme that seems prevalent this summer.
