A Sparkly Hug - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I was a VERY, VERY, VERY good girl yesterday I showed strengths I never knew I was capable of, I dug deep, found inner strength &  resisted the urge to ink up my Magnolia Stamp club until I'd finished my Paper Play DT card for tomorrow, are you impressed because you should be it was flipping torture, as bad as, if not worse than not being able hoover lol. They are all sooooooooooo gorgeous, I can't wait to make a card with them on but it won't be today as I'm having a day resting my back so I'll colour in an image or two maybe.

Today is new challenge day at
and we did it again peeps, thanks to all your fabulous entries we reached our 1000 entries target again, woo hoo, thanks so much.
Of course the trouble is now our Lols is going to be on a mission for 2000 entries before we know it and we won't even have time to sleep we'll be far too busy doing our DT commenting lol.

Our new challenge is
This week my lovely teamies & I are showcasing Stampabilities so I've picked a cute little House Mouse stamp for my card today.
 I am so out of my comfort zone colouring animals as it's not something I do often but I do like showcasing different brands as it is good to get out of the comfort zone now and again.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers -  My Minds Eye
Flowers - Magnolia & Prima
Lace - Kaiser
Bling - Kaiser

Our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge as always with a mahoosive $50 in store spending spree in the fabby
