Sunday Stamper - Week 229 - Harvest Moon **WITH SPECIAL SPONSOR!!!**

Goooooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Autumnal Sunday to you all.  Thank you for all your gorgeous honey toned entries for last weeks challenge.  Can you hear that fizzing?  Yes?  Tis I!    I am OVER THE TOP excited today to be able to share with you a very special sponsor for my little Sunday Stamper challenge.  Before I gabble on about that, I will do the theme thingy... which is... AUTUMN/FALL.  I have chosen this song because a) I love Neil Young (he is one of my fave singers) and b) the American connection is VERY relevant.  Read on to find out why.....     So.  A couple of weeks ago, lovely Sarah from Simon Says Stamp sent me an email.  She said "hey Hels, could we feature you on our blog?"  I was like "!!!***!!!***!!! Lemme think about that... for a second... YES PLEASE!"   How excited am I that Simon Says Stamp have asked to feature me!!! Excited? I bounced all around the Room of Stash for several minutes (until I had to sit down because I had a fit of the vapours!)  Anyways.  The theme for the feature is Autumn/Fall.  And the date for the feature is today.  Which coincides with todays Sunday Stamper.  And... there's more excitement too!!!  Get this... Simon Says Stamp have very generously offered a $25 Gift Certificate as a prize too.  Here is how to be in with a chance to win:  read carefully though, tis for one day only!
LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST BEFORE 23:59 TODAY (28TH OCTOBER 2012) AND A WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN AT RANDOM AND ANNOUNCED ON THE SIMON SAYS STAMP BLOG TOMORROW (29TH OCTOBER 2012)



 On with this weeks challenge now: the theme is AUTUMN/FALL be it colours, leaves, berries, hedgehogs (they love Autumn don't they?) spiders, even Hallowe'en... whatever floats your inky boat.  You can make anything you fancy, just add in the theme and some stamping and then pop back here with a linky to the place you are showing your entry and I can then hop on over to visit you.  If you don't have a blog, don't worry, you can join in by email/Photo-hosting-thingy/Facebook... and the challenge will remain open until 21:00 Saturday November 3rd 2012.   Now because the Simon Says gift is open for one day only, I thought I would also offer a little prezzie to one randomly picked entrant to the challenge this week.  You need to leave a comment for me AND join in with the challenge before the closing time and date.  The winner will be announced on next Sunday's post. 




You may have noticed that this post hasn't got many photo's... well, that is because all the pics etc are over on Simon Says Stamp blog for you to pop over and read... all the deets are HERE

All that is left for me to say is... a mahoooosive thank you to the lovely folks at Simon Says Stamp - I love their shop, if you haven't visited before, HERE's a link... seriously, the gorgeousness that they keep in stock... oohlalalaaaa, I could spend a large fortune there!  Thanks for looking... have a fab day!! TTFN
