Challenge: Flora And Fauna

newchallenge

 

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Red/White/Blue Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

Please CLICK HERE or scroll down to see the lucky winner

This week the challenge is

FLORA AND FAUNA 

Definition: Flora is plant life; fauna refers to animals. The handiest way to remember flora and fauna is that “flora” sounds like flowers, which are part of the plant world, and fauna sounds like “fawn,” and fawns are part of the animal kingdom.

You can choose Flora and/or Fauna.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
