Rainbows & Sunshine - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
It's official, I hate shopping! Hubby is on holiday next week so we are going to be decorating Jodie's bedroom as she insists she's never leaving home, & I got soooo fed up with looking at wallpaper, paint, furniture, carpets, curtains, accessories, etc etc, it was all whizzing around in my head & now I can't even remember what style of furniture I ordered after looking at so many so that will be a surprise when it's delivered, hopefully a nice one or I'll be in trouble with Jode lol.

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

My fabulous teamies and I are featuring some gorgeous Bo Bunny & Basic Grey products this week.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Flowers - Prima
Sentiment - Magnolia
Lace - Prima
Pin - homemade
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a mahoosive $50 in store spending spree in the
Don't forget to check out the lovely STORE BLOG peeps for lots of chances to win candy, fabby inspiration and featured products.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sketch & Stash - sketch (the only new item is paper), Anything Goes - anything goes, Crafty Sentiments - Spring in pastels, Die Cuttin Divas - pastels, Deep Ocean - inspired by a song (Drip, drip, dot Little April Showers - Bambi), Everybody Art - Spring, Scrap Creations - Spring, Oldie But A Goodie - April Showers (everything but the papers is from older stash), Papertake - April showers, Sassy Cheryl's - anything goes, Tuesday Throwdown - stick pins, Cupcake Craft - Spring is in the air, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamps & Fun = Creativity - butterflies, Amusing Challenges - Spring, That Craft Place - Spring, CES - swirls & pearls, Just Magnolia - anything goes
My post got a little delayed in finishing as a very nice man bought me a lovely box of goodies from Simon Says Stamp which I ordered last Tuesday night which was delivered quicker than some UK stores so I'm a very happy girlie with lots of new goodies to play with, take a peek
Things went a little down hill after my initial smiles at my new goodies as I had one of those con men on the phone telling me he had detected serious malware in my computer but if I followed his instructions he could help me so he made me swear at him when I not so politely told him to go away lol. I wonder how many times these con artists will ring before they finally get the message & stop calling, it's no wonder I hate the phone when people make me swear lol.
Thanks for stopping by

  8. Oh Mandy hunni, this is adorable. I love the sweet colours you've used and the layout is just perfect. Lucky you with all those goodies. You know - when we get cold callers round Graham always sends me to the door because he knows I will send them away with a flea in their ear.
    Once (several years ago) Graham was in the pub with him mates and a group of Double Glazing salesmen entered the pub - do you know what Graham's reaction was???? "Hey up fellas - look for the one with the limp - Dawn's in on her own tonight!!" Cheek! LOL
    You go for it girl - then send them up my way and I'll give em both barrels too!! LOL

  34. Hi Mandy lovely card as always. I'm struggling a bit with the PATP, yours look so good but the few I've punched all seem to have a glitch somewhere on them, maybe I'm just not taking enough time and care when punching but I'll keep at it.
    We also have con men here in Aussie but I have to say a good ol' swear always makes me feel better! And what the heck, you're never going to see them again.
