Have A Heart - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my previous post, after today's long shift at work & my on call tonight has ended I am off work for eight lovely days so will be able to catch up with you all.

I noticed I have lost over 150 blog followers & I  know lots of other blogging friends have lost followers also!
 For those who are unaware why, don't worry people haven't got bored & gone off your blog. Blogger has removed the ability of Twitter, Orkut & other Open id in other non blogger accounts!!! In other words blogger has literally wiped off all followers unless they are following us through their Google account which seems very unfair to me!!!

It's Wednesday which means .........
 at
& this week our challenge is
HAVE A HEART

As the past few weeks have been a whirlwind for me I hadn't got around to ordering my products to feature in this challenge so I have used a few lovely own brand goodies from Simon Says Stamp.

I've created a nice easy card this week using mainly Simon Says Stamp own brand goodies, & I wanted this card to be masculine, but couldn't help sneaking just the one pretty flower on it.
The large "Love You" & "Heart Rainfall" dies are both by Simon Says Stamp, as is all the card stock except for the corrugated card.

Anything Goes & Fiona Loves Flowers - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
Apologies for my sudden absence from blogland, my world has sadly once again been turned upside down!

On New Years Eve my lovely step-dad Tony collapsed and spent a week in intensive care in Southmead Hospital in Bristol, & sadly he lost his fight to stay with us. My sisters & I can't believe we have lost Tony less than eight months after losing our beautiful mum. Tony has been our rock these past few months, especially as we lost our dad almost 21 years ago & we are absolutely heartbroken having now lost all our parents.

On a brighter note I have packed this post with two cards as I am rejoining my fabulous friends at Simon Says Stamp this week & I also have a commissioned card to share which I created a couple of months ago & hadn't got around to blogging!

 own brand goodies. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.
This is the first card I have created since before Christmas so thought I'd ease myself back in gently with a nice simple card!
The cute images are from Simon's Winter Warmth stamp set & I've used some of my favourite Simon dies, Bundle Of Stitched Shapes, Merry Christmas & the Stitched Snowflakes.
I've used the snowflakes to create some faux embossing on my white card and the patterned paper is from Kaiser's pretty Silver Bells paper pad.

The copic colours I've used on this card are -
B24, B21,B000 / C3. C1. C00
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
A Snowflakes Promise - Winter, Christmas At Sweet Stampin' - bows, Crafting For All Seasons - ribbons & pearls, Creative Moments - anything goes (let it snow), Fab "n" Funky - Christmas, Stampavie & More - Winter
