Tilda With "Snow" Heart - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

 Good morning peeps,
I'm going to keep my waffle to a minimum for a change as a long drive & hours of blogging has set the pins & needles off in my arm & hand which is soooooo annoying grrrrr.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a mahoosive $50 in store spending spree

My fabulous teamies & I are showcasing BASIC GREY products this week

Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
I have added lots of lovely sparkle to the large snowflake using Twinklets Diamond Dust, and to pretty much everything else I've added some gorgeous sparkly Donna Salazar Sugar Shimmer Fairy Dust glitter.
 Jodie asked what Tilda was holding as the difference between the pale pink gloves & white heart wasn't very obvious apparently so out came the Copics again & Tilda's heart is no longer made of snow on my card lol.

I've die cut a super cute snowman / woman using a Basic Grey Sizzix Sizzlits Die and popped a wooden button from my stash on his /her tummy. I'm not sure which brand the button is as I buy them and pop them in a jar but there's a gorgeous selection in store here.

To decorate the inside of my book card I have used the adorable Magnolia Mini Magnolia Sparkling Tilda, and my longed for Magnolia Christmas sentiment stamp.  I've die cut the Magnolia Doo Hickey Vintage Tag and popped it inside the pocket, and punched the last layer of the accordion with my favourite Martha Stewart Aspen PATP, and finished off with Simplicity trim lace & an MS Arctic snowflake in each corner.
The back is decorated with the same Basic Grey papers and I've die cut the Magnolia Doo Hickey Mini Doily to sit my personalised stamp in.
I'm entering my book card in the following challenges -
Everybody Art - book cards, Make It Monday - anything goes, Stamp With Fun - buttons, The Pink Elephant - distressing, Ladybug Crafts - non traditional & / or distressed Christmas, Bah Humbug - die cuts, Just Magnolia - Christmas, Totally Papercrafts - glitter it, Basic Grey - anything goes, Sweet Stampin' - anything goes, Pile It On - keep warm, Simply Magnolia - buttons & lace, Bunny Zoe's - lace it up, Papertake - anything goes

I will be back with my Octobers candy winner asap, I need to check for double entries before I whirr up Random.Org.

  29. Mandy I have a question for you... I know you used the Mini Doily from Doohickey, but have you ever used the regular one? My question is, it looks like only 1/2 a die, so how would that work when I put it into my BigKick? I haven't ordered it yet because I am just so unsure of how to use it... if it is only half the die! I am so gonna be pennyless if I keep coming to your site! hehehe! Thanks Hon!
