Challenge #33: Simon Says: Take out your coloring tools

I have been waiting anxiously to post today's entry. We have some important news before we get to the challenge. Today I want to introduce you to five new Design Team members here at The Cuttlebug Spot. Please give them a warm welcome and don't forget to visit their blogs to see more of their wonderful work.


I am the proud mother of two teenagers - Caitlin and Dylan, loving wife of Rob, pet parent to Daisy, Snow and Bob, fun, silly, goofy, laid back, creative, sometimes girly, talkative, collector of all things cow, scrapbooker, picture taker, video game addict, singer (not so great), housewife/college girl, procrastinator, optimistic, life loving gal!!!

I am a part time working mum with one wonderful son, Connor who is nearly 16. I have been a crafter since I was 4 years old when my mum bought me some knitting needles for being good at the dentist! I have done many many crafts since then and started card making about 9 years ago! After working in a Bank for 31 years I was made redundant. This was when I bought my Cricut and cuttlebug and love using them to make my cards, these wonderful tools take your crafting to
another level!


Hi I am Jeannie Phillips, I have been married for 28 years to a wonderfully sweet man who supports me in everything I do.... and looks closely at each and every card I make... I have two kids, Madison who just finished her Masters in Accounting atAlabama and John-Robert who is at Auburn studying to be a secondary history teacher... I have been making cards for 2 1/2 years now and I love making cards and sharing them... of all the crafts I have tackled it is by far my favorite!
I am so excited to be a member of The Cuttlebug Spot Design Team and lookingforwardto each challenge and to every ones work!


The two things I love most-- scrappin' and being of mom of three beautiful children Layton (9), Jaedon (4), and Delaney (2). They are my pride and joy and what I spend most of my days scrapping! I've been scrapping for about a year and a half now.

I first am a daughter of The King, a wife to a terrific man of 32 years, a mother of two wonderful daughter's and a keeper of one adorable dog. I love spending time in God's word and time creating in my craft room.


This weeks challenge has been lots of fun. We are taking out our coloring tools and coloring some wonderful stamped images. You will find that some members of the DT , including myself have colored the Magnolia Tilda stamps. I have fallen in love with this little girl, she is adorable. The challenge does not require you to color Tilda,but if you have these stamps,it would be awesome to see your creations. Your stamped image can be colored with any medium of your choice.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. The project selected will receive a$20.00 gift certificate to the store. If you have never visited Simon Says Stamp, you really should take a peek. They offer a great variety of stamps, inks, copics, embellishments, and other tools for your creative needs. I love their service and prices. Good luck to everyone.
