Simon Says...

Goooooooooood morning!  I made it to AC Moore yesterday and put a nice little dent in my gift card that I had received for Christmas.  It was great because I had 3 coupons, a $10 reward certificate from my AC Moore Rewards card, AND the gift certificate my wonderful hubby gave me for Christmas.  So I bought some things that I just wanted to experiment with - I got some alcohol inks and a bottle of blending solution, can't WAIT to try my hand with these.  I also got a bottle of this "crackle" stuff - basically it's a liquid that you lay on top of an image and it dries to a cracked finish.  I have done the layering of UTEE and then "breaking" it to give it that look, but thought this sounded even easier!  I also got some Tim Holtz stuff, man I love his stuff.  I got some cool tapes (they are sort of transparent with designs on them - I got musical notes (see project below), dictionary-looking definitions, butterflies, and script.  Oh and these awesome glitter markers from Martha Stewart, LOVE THEM!  I also got a big 12x12 pad of Tim Holtz Kraft DP with cool designs on it.  I try to stay away from the larger DP because I don't really scrapbook, but sometimes I just can't resist and I usually cut it into 6x6 pieces when I get home.  I used a piece on yesterday's HDH project here, if you want to see.

I played around for a few hours yesterday but today is my long crafting day and I can hardly wait to get started.  I slept late this morning, which is also nice to do on Sundays, isn't it?   I'm just finishing my coffee now and then I'll do some laundry and get started crafting.  LOVE Sundays.  :)
I also love the Simon Says Stamp shop so I try to play along with the following 2 challenges every week (the prize is always a gift certificate to the store).  It helps that they always have cool themes to play with! And this week I was able to combine the challenges and do one project - here is my little tag for the:


My song title is "Dazed and Confused" by Led Zeppelin.  I used "Dunce Cap Zombie with Heart" by Dilly Beans, colored with Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, and Prismacolor markers.  I sprayed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz before adhering the image.  Musical note tape by Tim Holtz.  Ribbons and pearl stickers are from my stash.

Have a happy Sunday, my friends!  Peace.


  1. I love Sundays too! I love when I have "nothing" to do and I can just schlep around in my PJs and craft, draw or play my guitar :)
    LOVE the tag! There goes my fave color scheme again :)
    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday my friend!
