I also have another little crafty project to share today which is one of  Heidi Swapp's lovely Marquee Letters.
This was so simple to decorate with the Marquee Letter kit and Jodie loves it.
All I did was painted the letter inside and out with silver coloured paint, cut the letter "J" out using the template in the kit using lovely sparkly silver paper, and cut the holes for the lights out of the sparkly "J" using a craft knife. Once that was done & the paint was dry I adhered the paper inside the light and then added the lights which are also in the kit.
My card will be available in my little Etsy store.

That's me finished for today peeps.

Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp

Hello lovely peeps!
Oh my goodness where has Summer gone? I said to hubs at the weekend "I went to bed in August & have woken up in October" what the hell is going on lol.

I've spent a lovely few days catching up with my sister & niece, we've laughed & cried, & we've even chatted to some of our cousins in Leeds who we've not seen since we were children. My sisters and I are trying to sort out a date when we can all take time off work & us three can take a trip back home to Essex to visit our family. We all feel kind of "lost" since our mum passed away in May & having lost our dad 20 years ago makes seeing our aunts & uncles even more special & important to us now. We have a huge family, I am so looking forward to seeing them all again :)

On today's card I have used a cute Stamping Bella image which I absolutely loved colouring, & also some Hero Arts butterflies which I coloured & fussy cut before popping them on my card. 
I love Simon Says Stamps "email me when back in stock" option especially as I read my email & whizzed over and snagged all of the Stamping Bella stamps that I had wanted for ages but was never quick enough to snap them up when they were in stock :)
