Simon Says "Give Thanks"

Good afternoon to you.

The weather is glorious here, beautiful blue skies and sunshine.

The current challenge at Simon Says is "Give Thanks".

Again, I have used my beautiful new Hero Arts "Dogwood" stamp. As this stamp came from the Simon Says store, I thought it would be a good one to use for the challenge!!

Thank you for visiting.

Clare xx

I love this card...The stamp is gorgeous for a start and the way you embossed and layed the sentiment is fantastic...I think most of us forget our dies do more than just cut....

Anyway I digressed sorry, I adore this card, I must make a note of the stamp it's lovely, I am hoping to go to the NEC next month, not sure if Hero Art's have a stand of their own but I bet someone will have them, so if they do, it's coming home with

Hope your warm where you are, it's been freezing today, I think we will have to crank the log burner up this weekend, I just pray we don't have the hastle we had last year....Cleaning the flu on christmas day is a no,no for me this

So sorry I've been such a poor blogger lately, Clare. I've just been having a catch up with what I've been missing. This dogwood stamp is gorgeous and I love all the different ways you've been using it. It makes a stunning card.
Hope all is good with you and yours.

Hi Clare

Extremely elegant card, super use of Dogwood.

I so love how people get such different results from the same image and everyone can stamp (excuse the pun) their own mark on them.
