Hi Everyone!

You all sure created some beautiful cards for our Friendship challenge and we loved seeing them all in the group! Thank you for joining us!

Barb announced the winners of that challenge yesterday. You can see that post here: www.flickr.com/groups/simonsaysstamp/discuss/721577059742...

We are so ready for spring here at Simon Says Stamp and I'm sure you all are too! We can't wait for warmer temps, sunshine, flowers, green grass and tress, long walks, bike rides, picnics and more! So challenge 119 is, "Spring Has Sprung!" Let's fill up the group pool with wonderful, springtime creations! Whatever spring means to you will work.

We've got a talented guest designer today, to help get your creative juices flowing! She's made four fabulous, springtime cards and we love each one! Please welcome Holly with a comment below!

For Holly's first card, she used our, Butterflies Stencil and wow! We love the beautiful, spring colors she used! Makes us ache for spring even more! And look at that sparkle!

Her next card is so unique and creative! She used the Butterflies Stencil again but this time, she paired it with our, Clustered Leaves Die and we think it turned out gorgeous!

What says springtime more than flowers? Holly's next two cards are gorgeous! This next one reminds us of a lovely bouquet of pretty flowers! Beautiful coloring too!

And for Holly's final card, she went all out with the springtime vibe! Isn't this beautiful? Those colors! And look closely. That's our, Folk Dance Die, cut out, colored and and pieced back together! So pretty!

Thank you so much, Holly, for guest designing for us! We love your talent and you've inspired us all!

Okay, now it's your turn! Let's warm each other up with cards filled with the feeling of spring! We can't wait to see what you all create!

Here's a reminder of the rules:

--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand image, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon sponsors this group and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's very own products.

--- Please upload cards to your Flickr photostream and tag them with the appropriate tag name. For this week's challenge it will be SSSFlickrchallenge#119 all one word with no spaces. Tagging photos is easy - just find the "add tag" area, below and to the right, when looking at any photo in your photostream, click it, add the tag, then press enter.

--- Please mention in your photo-description, underneath your photo, that your card or project is for the challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS Flickr group.

--- Projects for the challenges must be newly created.

--- Submit as many projects as you like for each challenge.

--- You can add your card or project to no more than three other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for our challenges on your blogs too, please share the inspiration graphic in your post (if there is one) and also please add a link back to this discussion thread.

--- We'd love it if you could take a small amount of time, after uploading your card or project to the group, to comment on a few other group members' photos. We all love to receive encouragement for our creations!

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EDT, March 28, 2019 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

There will be TWO winners, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp online store!

We're on Instagram!

Happy weekend and happy stamping!
