Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp

Hello lovely peeps!
Oh my goodness where has Summer gone? I said to hubs at the weekend "I went to bed in August & have woken up in October" what the hell is going on lol.

I've spent a lovely few days catching up with my sister & niece, we've laughed & cried, & we've even chatted to some of our cousins in Leeds who we've not seen since we were children. My sisters and I are trying to sort out a date when we can all take time off work & us three can take a trip back home to Essex to visit our family. We all feel kind of "lost" since our mum passed away in May & having lost our dad 20 years ago makes seeing our aunts & uncles even more special & important to us now. We have a huge family, I am so looking forward to seeing them all again :)


It's Wednesday which means ..........    

 at
& this week our challenge is
ANYTHING GOES
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing 
Hero Arts
 products on our cards this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 
On today's card I have used a cute Stamping Bella image which I absolutely loved colouring, & also some Hero Arts butterflies which I coloured & fussy cut before popping them on my card. 
I love Simon Says Stamps "email me when back in stock" option especially as I read my email & whizzed over and snagged all of the Stamping Bella stamps that I had wanted for ages but was never quick enough to snap them up when they were in stock :)

 The copic colours I've used are -
Fiona - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, top - C3, C1, C00, 
Flowers - / G43, G40, YG93 / E53, E51, E50 / R12, R01, R000 / V04, VO1, V000
Butterflies - E53, E51, E50 / YR07, YR04, YR000 / YR24, YR21, YR20
