Autumn Colours - Paper Play DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I think I over did it a bit yesterday, my quiet day of colouring, blogging and resting my back went all wrong as hubby was home and wanted to go shopping so by the time we'd trundled around the supermarket went home and unpacked all the shopping, I had coffee & a catch up with Ali, then caught up with a bit of housework all I wanted to do was have a hot bath, be plastered in Deep Heat & not even speak to anyone, so not like me I know lol.

Today is new challenge day at
this week we have a new challenge for you which is

Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Sentiment - Cats Life Press
Flowers - Kort & Godt, Prima & Wild Orchid
Lace - a gift from the lovely Elaine (thanks hun x)
Pin - homemade
Tools - Magnolia Doo Hickey swirls, Woodware mini butterfly punch, MS Eyelet Lace PATP, Nesties, Marianne Creatables decorative elegance

I was just thinking did I not sparkle this card and I sure did, I can see it now lol. The sparkle is a mix of crystal glamour dust and Crafters Companion sparkle & spray, spray & sparkle, or it's called something like that anyway, I've had strong painkillers can you tell lol.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Anything Goes - die cuts/punches or both, Top Tip Tuesday - sketch, Kreative Stamp Friends - Autumn colours, iCopic - Fall/Autumn, Make It Monday - anything goes, Marianne Design Divas - bloom & grow, Stamps R Us - Autumn/Fall, Cupcake Inspirations - inspirational piccy, Stamptacular - inspirational piccy, Emerald Fairies - punches/dies

That's me done peep's and I am NOT leaving the house today so I WILL get some blogging & colouring done, I might even just have a bath and pop some more PJ's on, it's cold here today so it's a perfect day for snuggling indoors.
Thanks for stopping by
