Santa Time - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good morning peeps,
Hubby went back to work yesterday afternoon and I did intend heading straight to my craft room to play but I only actually made it in there to give it a clean. Not content with a nice clean craft room I then had the urge to have a cleaning spree and get the house back to how I like it, so I blasted a bit of Robbie Williams out & "sang" along with him & thoroughly enjoyed a good clean without being told off for hoovering, I know I'm strange I've been told many times lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is
so either make a tag or add a tag to your creation.
My lovely teamies and I are showcasing a variety of dies this challenge & as always have some gorgeous inspiration for you.
I have decided to do battle with my least favourite Christmas colours again, it's all the red that I'm not keen on so why oh why do I challenge myself lol.
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a whopping $50 spree in the fabulous Simon Says Stamp superstore

My shopping takes me hours as there is always so many new products and lovely goodies I discover for the first time.
If you don't already follow the STORE BLOG pop over & sign up to see the latest goodies & loads of giveaways
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Creative Craft - free for all, Everybody Art - Christmas card, Papertake - Christmas crackers,  The Cheerful Stamp Pad - who's wearing Santas hat? Hooked On Crafts - something punched, Make It Monday - anything goes, Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes at Christmas, Here Come The Boys - red, white & green, Sketchy Colours - sketch, Stamptacular - boy oh boy!, 2 Sisters - let it sparkle, CES - snowflakes, Crafty Hazelnuts - music, Crafty Catz - snowflakes, Fun With Shapes & More - use something 3 times, Just Magnolia - ribbons

Oh blimey I need to get a shift on and make myself presentable as Jodie has a policeman due round in half an hour to take a witness statement from her and pj's, fluffy socks and mad curly hair isn't my best look, I'll probably scare him lol.
Thanks for stopping by
