My card features the Mini Monograms stamp set. This is my new favourite alphabet stamp set and I'm certain it'll take priority in your stampy stash, too! To create the custom sentiment on my card, I cut strips of ombre pink paper from Echo Park's Head Over Heels 6x6 paper pad and simply stamped the letters one by one. They are so easy to line up! After trimming the sentiment strips. I die cut two felt clouds using the Cosmos Icons dies and two harlequin patterned clouds using the Clouds dies. The top heart is from the Wedding Shower dies and the other two hearts are from the Hearts dies.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check the Paper Smooches Blog on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky winners!

{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Anything Goes with Twine or String

Welcome to the last Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in January! This week's challenge is Anything Goes with Twine or String which means we want to see some twine, string, floss or even thread on your project. The design team is featuring Mama Elephant. ♥ You don't have to use them but we'd love to see them if you have any!

I used loads of stamps and dies from Mama Elephant including Pandamonium, Love Quotes and Love Quotes Creative Cuts for the characters. The grassy hill and bushes were die cut from Landscape Trio Creative Cuts. I also used Party Kit and Party Kit Creative Cuts to create the tassels on the end of the skipping rope which is Lawn Fawn's Pink Lemonade cord. The fun sentiment is from Good Times. Yes, I giggled the entire way through the creation of this card. LOL!

One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!

It could be you!

I hope you will play along with us this week!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)
