Simon Says Stamp DT, Lili Of The Valley GDT & Last Chance To Enter Candy

Hello lovely peeps,
I hope all our friends across the pond are safe after the awful hurricane Sandy, the pictures on the news are horrendous I just can't image how terrifying it must be to be in the path of a hurricane.
The days just seem to be whizzing by here & I've decided I absolutely love the internet as I've bought several Christmas presents all from the comfort of my sofa, coffee in hand, no crowds, nice and snug indoors, now that's my ideal kind of shopping lol.
I've also been spending a lot of time with Jodie at the moment, she's really struggling with coming to terms with the loss of her friend Jake, and sadly another friend Dave was repatriated yesterday so she's not having a good time at the moment.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is a
GET IN SHAPE
so no square cards this week peeps.

I was looking through the shapes of my nesties and trying to decide what to make and came up with a bauble shaped card.
  Ingredients -
are all listed at the bottom of my post.......hopefully as it's my first time using inlinz!
I've tried using soft colours on this card, more of a distressed ink look & the Copic Colours I've used are -
skin - E21, E00, E000, R20, E93, hair - E40, E41, 43, clothes - V0000, RV93, RV91 / C1, C00, Rudolph - W2, W1, W00, RV52 / E53, E51, E50
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a fabby $50 is store spending spree

Make It Monday - anything goes, Magnolia Down Under - birthstone (April = Diamond, no wonder I love my sparkle lol), Midweek Magnolia's - anything goes, Tilda's Town - Merry Christmas, Creative Craft - special occasion but not birthday
----------------------------------------
As it's taken me ages to suss out inlinz, inlinz itself was easy I just went a bit wrong when I couldn't find a couple of products that were already in the Simon Says Stamp products listed section so I'm going to combine my post, & next up is my last GDT card for Lili Of The Valley which is also shown on the lovely Ideas To Inspire blog. A big thank you to Anne for inviting me to join you ladies this month :)
As it's Halloween today I thought this little chappie would be perfect for share and his name is
