This week we are challenging you to join us for our 7th Birthday celebrations
We would like you to create something to help with our birthday celebration! It could be a card, a tag to attach to a gift, a gift or maybe a birthday banner or cake topper! Whatever you decide to make we will be looking forward to seeing how you join us for the party!
As it is the first Monday of the month, as as it is our birthday, we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products!
A birthday wouldn’t be the same without extra gifts so for this challenge we will be giving away not one but 2 X $50 vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This month we are welcoming the lovely and super talented Simona Rebecchi aka Ginny and the Sheep. I am sure you will have all visited her fabulous blog but just in case you missed it you really need to drop by, it is full of awesome eye candy!
Simo is so thrilled to celebrate our Birthday and for being chosen as Guest Designer for this month, so she made a Journal spread with some of her all time favorite goodies, together with our Simon’s Exclusives ‘Sentiments of Be’ Die and Stamp Set and ‘You’ Die
Anna-Karin made a clear whale-themed birthday card, using a whole bunch of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps, dies and surfaces, such as the brand new Encouraging Animals stamp and die set, Big Day die, Circle Doodle Background stamp, and vellum.
Barbara celebrates her birthday during this month same as Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! She created a birthday card with a lot of Simon’s Exclusives dies and stamps: new FLORAL BURST COLLAGE Wafer Dies, Simon Says Clear Stamps AUTUMN GREETINGS, Simon Says Stamp BEST DAY EVER Wafer Die, Simon Says Clear Stamps ENVELOPE GREETINGS and Distress oxides.
Cathie created a fun and cheerful card using bright colors to celebrate Simon’s 7th birthday. She created a fun party style background using the Simon Says Stamp Curly Streamers dies and Falling Snow stencil. The beautiful sentiment is from the Big Scripty Greetings stamp set.
Macarena went into a Birthday card with a very mixed-media background using Simon Says Stamp Extra Large Dots stencil and kept it in her favorite pink/purple color combo using Infusions and Metallique Paints. For the frame she used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and Clustered Leaves dies. Finally she put the sentiment using SSS Happy Birthday die.
Meihsia celebrates Simon’s birthday with creating a mixed media gift tag using Simon Says Rubber Stamp Falling Stars on the background and the cute unicorn image from Simon Says Clear Stamp Magical Birthday.
