Sweet Wonderful You - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I had such a panic Monday night, Jodie was at work, Gareth was out at a friends & hubby was working a night shift and I opened the back door to let the dogs out in the garden before bedtime and had the shock of my life as my garden was covered in snow & it was snowing really heavy blowing a blizzard! My immediate thought of course should have been would they all get home safe if this bad weather keeps up but I'll be honest it wasn't! I am a bad wife & a bad muma as my initial thoughts were "OMG, OMG nooooooo will I still get my parcel from NEXT in the morning & will the courier deliver my parcel on foot if the roads are too bad to drive" Yes I know, I know hanging my head in shame, in my defense my new goodies did arrive o.k & they are really gorgeous lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is Simon Says -
USE WASHI TAPE

All of the black & white polka dot paper on my card is in fact Queen & Company trendy polka dots Washi tape
I have again reached for some new Magnolia's as I love the new With Love Collection, I am even getting used to little Tilda's naked butt although it still seems wrong everyone looking at her bottom lol.
The Copic Colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, trousers - N7, N5, N3, whites - C3, C1, C00, chocolate cake - E49, E47, E44, cake stand - C3, C1, C0, red hearts - R89, R59, R39, cakes - E53, E51, E50, icing - RV63, RV00, V0000, hearts - E57, E55, E53

We're having a "Soothers" & "4head" party here as hubs & I are both woke up with headaches & sore throats & I find it highly amusing when hubs uses the 4head rub as it always makes his eyes water & he always has a little rant about it, it's the way we have the same little routine every time he uses it that makes me chuckle as I just know what is coming next lol.

Years a go i did make my own until wild orchid crafts came on the scene. Then they went in the draw. I do agree, I was shocked to see tilda's bum out. Funny to see. Get well soon babes. We the same this end. Coughs and colds. Hugs xx

  24. This is so funny, I just made this exact image, both of them in Distressed Inks and put it in my Art Journal. I thought it was so darn cute that I would save it. Now look at how gorgeous your card looks and those checkered pants! I love what you did and all the embellishments are gorgeous too. I need to color another one up! First I will finish my Art Journal so I can show my image of both stamps. lol
