A Snowman, A Whale & A Tilda - Addicted To Stamps & Simon Says Stamp Artist Group DT Cards

Hello peeps & Happy Easter :)
It's been a beautiful day here today, I actually enjoyed taking the dogs out for a run & not shivering for a change & my little weather sensor in the garden told me it's a whole 5 degrees centigrade, I never knew 5 degrees could feel so warm lol
I haven't had much time for my little blog the past couple of weeks due to hubby having had what seems like most of March off of work & we've had so much going on at home with decorating, catching up with friends, having little Ollie (great nephew) to stay & Gareth's bands gigs etc. It hasn't helped that this crazy woman thought it would be a good idea to reorganise my craft room which has taken hours and hours, and guess what! I can't find a flipping thing & wish I'd left it alone lol.
Today I need a catch up so I have some DT cards to share & two of them are featuring some more lovely Simon Says Stamp new Spring exclusives. These little cards have been sat in my craft room for over a week waiting to be photographed & blogged so apologies for a long post today, there will be no more silly reorganising ideas from me for a while & I'll be giving blogging more time :)
My first card is my DT card for our new challenge at 
& our new challenge is 
only the image can be coloured & if you add a sentiment you can stamp your sentiment in any colour.
As always my lovely teamies have some gorgeous inspiration for you, hop over and take a peek :)
 I had no idea what to make for this challenge, my mojo had completely abandoned me, so after much sighing & looking around my craft room & achieving nothing I even tried bribing my teamies by offering them Easter Eggs in return for some mojo lol. Eventually I started looking through my ArtBin full of dies & I discovered some dies I'd not yet used & the mojo our lovely NicoleTeresa kindly whooshed over to me arrived & then this little card just sort of happened lol.
It's a shame all the sparkle isn't showing up in my photo as this card is a real sparkler lol. The house and two Christmas trees at the front are Dee's Distinctively dies & the adorable snowman is a Magnolia stamp.
The copic colours I've used are -
Body - C3, C1, C00, B0000, R12, hat, scarf & gloves - B23, B21, B0000 / C1, C0, C00, buttons & nose - N9, N7, N5
 My next card features some super cute Simon Says Stamp exclusives & you may look at it & think it looks a bit "young" for a 30 year old but I wanted it to be a clean looking fun card as it is for a dear little fella I used to key work who has severe learning disabilities & challenge behaviours.
The whale, anchor & stars stamps are new exclusive products designed for Simon Says Stamp by Kelly Purkey. I have stamped and then heat embossed the cute whale with clear embossing powder & I've added some lovely sparkle to the embossed dots in the background.

Last but not least I have used some more Simon Says Stamp exclusive products along with some very neglected Magnolia stamps that I bought when the Prince & Princesses Collection was released & I can't believe I haven't inked them up before now!
I've already used the new release full card Bubbles die a couple of times before & I love it, & I've also used Simon's Harrington Scroll Vine which seems to appear on most cards I make so you can tell that's a hit with me lol.
The pins are handmade and all being well I will open my Etsy shop tomorrow & have some of my pins for sale in it along with this little card if anyone is interested :)
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes & bath cap - B95, B91, B00000 bath - C5, C3, C1, C00, bubbles - BG000, V000, RV000
Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday & of course your Easter Eggs :)
