Animal Antics - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I am loving all the beautiful sunshine we are enjoying, despite the sunshine I am always cold at the moment! I have seen so many people wearing t-shirts, flip flops & even shorts & here is me still wearing my Winter boots, cardigans & thick socks & still have the central heating on twice a day, yes I'm a softy Southerner lol.

My Magnolia stamp club has been sat here waiting for an inking for the past week & I have some gorgeous pencils to play with but no time as yet to play. Roll on 8.45pm on Friday as I will have seven whole wonderful days off to play, play, play & have a rest which I am so looking forward to as I feel like I'm running on empty & actually need some time to relax, think I might even try getting some sleep for a change lol. Those who really know me know that "relaxing" & me just don't go together. I am a fidget & always on the go but I think it's time I at least tried & I have all good intentions to relax so by my reckoning I'm half way there lol.

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring some fabulous Stampendous products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
I was annoyed with myself after making this card, not because I was unhappy with it but because I totally forgot I intended using a House Mouse image & lots of lovely Stampendous frantage for this challenge to showcase Stampendous goodies, but me being me my first thought is "I have the perfect Tilda" & need I say more lol.
I have used Stampendous Flourish Frames around my image & have stamped them using one of Simon's own brand lovely ink pads, & the cute little paw prints are also from Simon's exclusive stamp range. 

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - W4, W2, W0 / C3, C1, C00 / B23, B21, B000, Wiola (dog) - C3, C1, C00, bouquet - RV10, RV00, RV0000 /R85 / B23 / YG06, YG63, YG61 + white gel pen, bricks - E37, E34, E31, E30, window - V25, V22, V20 / C1, CO, RV95, RV93, RV91 / R85, R83, R81,
