Simon Says Play Along - Anything Goes!

Hello there!  
I hope this week has gone your way so far!  Hopefully it will continue to do so!  Lucky for you, the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge theme for this week is Anything Goes! Are you crafty?  Do you like opportunities to win $50 to a one-stop shop that carries TONS of crafting supplies?  If you answered yes to either or both of those questions, you might want to check out the Stamp & Show Challenge blog


Below, are projects by our three featured designers of the week, but make sure to check out their blogs and the blogs of our other wonderful designers for more information and inspiration! 

Made by Ellen Vargo!
 
I like the word band that she chose!!  Plus the weathered copper patina looks fabulous!  : ) 
Made by Candy Colwell!
 
I love the crinoline on this!  It goes so well with the pearls and (of course) the image - so feminine!!  The torn, inked paper in the background is nice too!   Candy used Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Inks by Tim Holtz, Cutter Bee Scissors by EK Success, Melissa Frances White Pearls, and Waterfall and Star Dust Stickles by Ranger!
Made by Linda Elbourne!
 
Linda used the Kabuka Mold #7 by Ten Seconds Studio!  She also used the Gadget Gears die by Tim Holtz for Sizzix, a cutting machine, the Steampunk Cling Rubber Stamp Set by Tim Holtz, and Sprocket Gears Idea-ology pieces!





Blog Candy Alert!
Leave a comment about one (or all) of these gorgeous for a chance to win this exclusive, not for sale Hero Arts Stamp Set - great to use for Challenges!  ; )  This kit comes with a 6x8" set of clear stamps plus black and white printed copies of ideas.
