Simon Says Stamp - my first DT card !!!

I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I received and email asking me would I like to be a DT member for Simon Says Stamp Challenge - did I hesitate - well yes I did - I sat staring at my computer screen for about 20 minutes in disbelief. Once realisation had kicked in my little fingers flew across the keyboard - I couldn't say YES quick enough.

I've always loved the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and entered each one I possibly could.  Shopping at the Simon Says Stamp store is a delight, the range of goods available is fantastic, it's like entering Alladin's cave, I've always found the service so friendly and efficient and believe it or not I very often receive my goods quicker than I do from Europe and at competitive postal charges also.




Right on to my first DT card, and oh boy - I can't tell you how nervous I was doing this one!! The theme this week is "You gotta have friends" 
and there is a  great prize of $25 to spend in the Simon Says store.







The image is by Penny Johnson, whom we are featuring this week, and it is coloured with Ranger distress inks - I had to use this adorable image - the dog reminds me so much of Chloe - a bearded collie I had, hair all over the place and just so cuddly and lovable. The paper are from the Basic Grey Cappella collection, the  button is also Basic Grey. The borders are cut with a MS punch and the adage ticket is one of Tim Holtz. All the products used are sold at the Simon Says Stamp store except the ribbon - you'll have to go the my ex-local market in Blackburn for that.
