Star of Wonder and a giveaway!

Hi, I'm back with another card made using Simon Says Stamp's December card kit.
For this card, I used some of the yummy ribbon from the kit to create a stitched ribbon tree, then added a sentiment from the stamp set. I embellished with some cute Studio Calico tiny wooden stars which I covered in Star Dust Stickles.
See the glitter...
Simple and shiny. :)
Now, here's some exciting news.
I have an exclusive Simon Says Stamp set to givaway. Yay! I ended up with two sets of these AWESOME stamps... so I'm sharing the love. :)
Just leave a comment here by Sunday night and I'll draw a winner next week.
Good luck!

Sparkly Tree

I'm back, and I have a sparkly card to share made using Simon Says Stamp's December card kit. This is a fun kit. Loads of pretty papers, fun wax stickers, buttons, ribbon and as always, a GORGEOUS stamp set designed by Kristina Werner.
I made my card by taking one of the sheets of paper from the kit (which is from THIS pad) and die cutting circles (using the little circle dies from THIS set). I added one of the fab Basic Grey stickers from the kit and designed a tree. Fun. Some Doodlebug gems added sparkle, and that fun sentiment from the kit's stamp set finished it off. Everything you see, except the gemstones, is from the kit. Good value, right?
Here's a close-up so you can see that fab wax sticker.
OK, back soon... I have another card kit card to share. :)
I hope you have a great Monday.

Simon Says Stamp Gratitude Blog Hop and Charity Donation

Hello everyone!
I was so excited when I was asked to be a part of this amazing blog hop today, hosted by Simon Says Stamp. It's all about gratitude, and along with sharing what we are grateful for, each crafter on the hop has designed some yummy cards with a gratitude theme. Fun right? 
What are you thankful for? Personally, I couldn't be more grateful this year. I have been blessed with the most wonderful little daughter who brings me happiness beyond measure every day. 
So... I have created two gratitude themed cards for the hop today.  First up, a floral friendship card featuring a gorgeous flower from Simon Says' Always and Forever set and a sentiment from their elegant Handwritten Sentiments set. The papers are from My Mind's Eye's Lucky in Love 6 x 6 pad. I had some fun cutting out those tiny dots in the centre of the flower. ;)
And second, a VERY pink and sparkly Thank You card, featuring a stamp from the You Can Do Anything set. I stamped it in Neon Pink ink, adding little silver gems to the centre of each star. The pink paper is also from MME's Lucky in Love pad. And that yummy ribbon, it's HERE.
And on to the exciting part! I will be giving away a $50 donation to the charity of a commenter's choice. Just leave a comment saying what you are most grateful for and you will be entered in the drawing. After the winner is chosen Simon Says Stamp will be in touch with you to find out the charity you have chosen. We will draw winners on Wednesday 11/28.
