Fly away

Hi everyone,

It's a brand new Monday and that means that there's a new challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. This week the theme is Fly. There is a lot that flies, so I think you can go all out with this challenge!

 

When I think flying, I automatically think of wings, and I had almost had my favorite wing stamp right there next to me. But I've thought of something else that I could entail. Why not go crazy with an old zipper or zipper ribbon. It's such cool stuff and you can easily create so many beautiful things with it and it seemed perfect for this project. It's not difficult to make a dragonfly. What is difficult is that I'm not on good terms with my glue gun. So did my very best to be friends again. After some struggling I made it happen... Pfewww.



As background, I had a piece of Zepher paper left over from another project. A while back I bought the WordPlay die and I am so over the moon with it that I use it everywhere that I can. So this card was also a candidate for it. I also love the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts die. These hearts are just too cute.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

  4. Sandra...this is such a cute tag! I love how you've used the old zipper or some zipper ribbon to create what looks like a dragonfly to me. That is such a clever and very effective idea! Love your "FLY" in yellow. It really pops against that cool background. I also love the sweet little birds on the wire stamp. <3 Candy
