Simon Says August Card Kit...

Hi's a dreary dreich morning here in Bonnie Scotland and I've completely given up trying to fathom out the minute it's gorgeous sunshine...the next it's chucking it down with rain and it's been so cold...cold enough for the cubbyhole crew to seriously consider snuggling under the duvet and going into hibernation.
But back to the crafty stuff and following on from yesterday's "way out of my comfort zone" watercolour makes...there's another disclaimer coming your way...clean and simple just isn't my style anymore...inky edge withdrawals spring to mind so I'm popping my head over the parapet and sharing the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit "Together"...

but I have to confess I rather enjoyed this "pretty patterned papers and puffy stickers with a little bit of stamping" card making challenge...
and who knew that this obsessed distress fanatic and lover of all things Tim Holtz would find herself smitten by puffy stickers...

the card kit is still available and you can either purchase the complete kit HERE or the individual items contained in the kit HERE.

It's the weekend and I have a list of things to do...the usual household chores (boring)...the lawn needs a haircut (top priority) and then the cubbyhole crew will be settling down with a cuppa to continue sorting out this yummy bundle of Idea-ology spookiness...
and finishing off the labelling marathon with the help of my Furry Assistant...the one who has once again laid claim to the cosy rug whilst his creaky old Mum has to make do with the floor...

I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you still have time to enter this week's challenge with the chance to win a $50 spending spree at Simon Says Stamp online store.
Toodle-oo for now

  1. Morning Kath, I know exactly what you mean weather wise, I tell you I give up wondering what will happen next, last night got so bday we just couldn't see across the fields, those poor cows...Anyway, I do like your cards and the puffy stickers look great, would be fab for scrapbooking....
    You enjoy your weekend, hugs to Buddy...xx

  2. My favourite is the 'Wild and Free' card - I just love the colour combo you've used. I love the expression on Buddy's face 'I'm not doing anything naughty, honest Mum'!

  3. That gorgeous face is enough to melt the heart.... he is so adorable!

    I do like the look of the puffy stickers too, they make the cards very tactile, as does the stitchy border... I can feel a purchase coming on - lol...

    As for the Halloween bundle, I can see witchy goings on, the coffin is bigger than I expected, I am so glad I saved some brooms from last year, they are just fabulous!! Cold, wet and windy here too. It is so sad that wildfires in Canada have meant that a friend has been evacuated from her home... I wish we could send some cold and rain their way....:( Hugs, Anne xxx

  4. These are fabulous! I can't wait to see what you create with your fabulous goodies.

  5. Lovely colour combos in the card kit Kath.
    Can't wait to see what you come up with using those Halloween goodies.
    Buddy certainly has taken a liking to that rug.
