Princess Of The Valley - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
We've actually had some rain at long last, I love listening to the sound of the rain & my garden is going to be so happy, the only trouble is the rain brings more pain in my shoulder so I'm having a nice relaxing day snuggling indoors watching a film & colouring, hubby finished work at 8am & is already snoring in his chair so I'm guessing we'll watch the film later lol.

Today is new challenge day at 
& this week our challenge is

I've picked two favourites as I probably always use both for my cards, Martha Stewart punches & Cuttlebug
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - Melissa Frances, C'est La Vie, love this pad :)
 Pearls - Melissa Frances
Lace - Simplicity
Twine - Hemptique
Charm - Symbolize
Flowers - Prima & stash

The Copic colours I've used are -

Don't forget to keep an eye on the STORE BLOG peeps for lots of lovely giveaways, inspiration & scrummy new products.

On the subject of new products I know lots of UK girls have been desperately trying to buy 
*K&Company PRETTY PINK Smash Folio 30-615113
as the stockists are really limited here, but look no further you can find them HERE. I have one already which I sat and stared at for ages wondering what on earth I was going to do with it & eventually my brain switched on & now I have ideas galore and ended up ordering another 5, naughty girl lol, well they are £8 cheaper than in the UK so it would be rude not to lol.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crazy Amigo Challenge - anything goes, Creative Card Crew - Spring, Deep Ocean - masking/more than 1 stamp, Papertake - anything goes, Twisted Tuesday Challenge - clouds, Bunny Zoe's - shabby chic/vintage, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamp With Fun - not Easter, Tammy's Scrappin' Corner - anything goes, The Crazy Challenge - Spring, The Cutie Pie Challenge - favourite cutie, Let's Ink It Up - distressing, Sweet Stampin' - Spring/Easter, Sunday Sketch & Stamp - sketch 100#, Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes, Just Magnolia - Springtime

 Thanks for stopping by

  30. Hi Mandy, I saw your post on MIM and had to stop for a visit. I just love this sweet image and the sentiment you chose to use is just perfect!!The color combo is perfect for such a darling card. I have had a homemade SMASH book for awhile, before they were too popular and just love it, especially while on vacation. I can clip and paste anything and know where it is. They are so much fun to use!! Have fun with 8 of them! Wasn't aware of the wedding SMASH book???
