Snowflakes, Snowflakes & More Snowflakes - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
This card seems a bit strange to me!!! Puzzled, I know I am lol. This was my DT card that I had almost finished for last weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge post but due to being in so much pain I couldn't put the finishing touches to it so didn't join my lovely teamies for last weeks challenge, and I think this is why it seems strange as I haven't actually made a whole card for today's challenge I've just adapted it a bit if you know what I mean, and if you haven't a clue what I mean, just give up lol.

This weeks challenge is at
is

This week my lovely teamies and I are showcasing BRADS, and I'm kind of still showcasing MY FAVOURITE THINGS from last week showcase special too lol.

This is my 3rd Christmas card this month so I am entering Hjertbodens Christmas Challenge to make 3 cards a month, my others can be found HERE & HERE
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Flowers - Prima & Stash
Pearls - Hero Arts
Sentiment - Magnolia
Pin - homemade

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a mahoosive $50 in store spending spree to one lucky winner.
Don't forget to keep an eye on the SIMON SAYS STAMP STORE BLOG too and see what lovely new products are arriving in store and the generous candy giveaways

I can't remember which sketch I had originally started following but luckily I hadn't attached the image so I adapted it and popped a panel in so it fits a current sketch.
I really must try and catch up with some challenges, I'm just struggling to spend long periods of time on my laptop I keep having to get up and shuffling around or it feels like my back is seizing up, but a big thank you to all the lovely peeps who've taken the time to alert me to some challenge wins
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sketch Saturday - fab sketch, Inky Impressions - punches or dies, Penny's Paper Crafty - anything goes, Make It Monday - anything goes linky party, Ooh La La - punches & dies, Stamps & Fun = Creativity - anything goes, Corrosive - punches &/or dies, Lollipop Crafts - anything goes, Sparkles Forum - sparkle

I'm on day 15 of no hoovering, it's killing me girls but rest assured as soon as my my back pain lets me I'll be making the most of it & even hoovering the ceilings lol.
Jodie attempted to hoover the other day as hubby was going to work & had left her instructions to do it to keep me happy, I couldn't cope with watching & she was shocked to discover upstairs needed hoovering as well !!!! When she'd finished she flopped in the chair and said "why the hell do you do that every day mum, I'm knackered" lol.
Thanks for stopping by
