Pirate Luka - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
 It's another beautiful but cold day here today, I am so looking forward to the weather warming up again.
Hopefully I will not be ranting about the pink thing anymore as we are bonding! Fingers crossed I have sorted the problem woo hoo, I am so stubborn it was not going to beat me no matter how annoyed it made me lol. At long last I can now get back to blogging properly & get to grips with Windows 7. It's been so annoying just being able to peer at cards from my dashboard but not visit blogs unless I've borrowed Jode's little netbook to do my DT comms, Jode is pleased too as she needs her netbook a lot at the moment finishing off college assignments, whatever happened to pens & paper lol.

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

My fabulous teamies & I are showcasing La La Land & Lawn Fawn stamps this week so if you have them we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory.
Normally I would have a right panic about CAS cards but I am o.k with this one, it was so quick & easy to make which was perfect as I've been enjoying being busy in the garden so the hours I've saved making my DT card was time well spent painting fences.

Sentiment - Magnolia
Medium - Copics
Paper - Magnolia
Twine - Hemptique
Pearls - Hero Arts
