COLOR COORDINATES - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself today due to feeling pretty rubbish with a cold. Several of my colleagues have been poorly with it for the past few weeks and there was me thinking I'd been spared looking like Rudolph, but it's finally got me.
This cold HAS to be gone by the weekend as I'm off to London on Monday to meet up with some fabulous ladies, some will be taking a very long flight to come to England and I can't wait to meet them IRL :)

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
 
 at
& this week our challenge is
COLOR COORDINATES 
 
We have a special challenge this week ! As you may know Simon’s Creative Director Shari Carroll has a Color Coordinates monthly feature on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and this week we are joining in with Shari’s color scheme AND Shari is joining us as a Special Guest here too !!
This is the gorgeous Coordinates Inspiration Board, featuring several of Simon’s Colored Cardstock, for us to use.
 
 
I have dusted off my Magnolia Halloween stamps as well as Simon's super cute own brand Happy Halloween stamp set.
 
Halloween cards are so popular in blog land and I love making them yet I personally have never sent or received one! Halloween isn't as popular in England as it is in the USA, so this little card will no doubt end up pinned up on one of the beams in my attic craft room.
The Copic colours I've used are -
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - N9, N7, N5,boots - N5, N3, N1, N0, socks C3, C1, C00
Witch Tilda - dress G94, G43, G40 / C1, C00, hat - BV08, BV11, BV00, BV000  Pumpkins - YR27, YR15, YR12
Tilda With Broom - dress - BV08, BV11, BV01, BV00, broomstick - W4, W2, W0

The Little Gingerbread House - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
The weather has certainly turned Autumnal here, the central heating has been switched on and it won't be long until Christmas. Blog counters are telling me it's only 78 sleeps until the big day, should I start to panic lol.
Last year Christmas was pretty awful for us with hubs in hospital having just suffered a stroke, & the poor kids had to suffer me trying to cook the most disgusting Christmas lunch ever before dashing back to the hospital. I do not cook, and should not cook, EVER, those are the perks of marrying a chef lol. Lunch was bad, really bad, even the dogs weren't interested in all the leftovers and there was a lot leftover lol.
This year I am really hoping that it's a happy & relaxing day, pretty much everything that last year wasn't, so I am getting cracking on the Christmas cards and they are one of my all time favourite cards to make.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
 
 at
& this week our challenge is
WATERCOLOUR
 
 Back in the days when copics were these nice looking but scary markers to use I water coloured with distress inks all the time but now the roles have totally reversed.
Instead of reaching for my distress inks or watercolour pencils I thought I would be totally insane and challenge myself to watercolour with Gelato's!
I've been busy making some new pins & this time they are especially for Christmas. Some of the pins have little angel wings on and others have little Christmas charms of the end. I will be popping some in my Etsy shop soon.
