A Little Stamper & An Ice Skater - Simon Says Stamp & Totally Tila DT Cards

Hello lovely peeps,
 My poor little blog has sat neglected for the past week & it's so good to be back here :)
My cold has developed into a chest infection which often happens especially for asthmatics & it has aggravated my asthma so I've had lots of blasts on the nebuliser, steroids & antibiotics & touch wood apart from the usual shakes & feeling wobbly caused by the nebuliser & steroids I am starting to feel sooooooo much better, I just need to cure the severe withdrawal symptoms from missing my craft room lol.

My post today is going to be a bit longer than usual as I've missed posting a DT card, & I really need to catch up with DT comments so thought a double post would be quicker.

Today is new challenge day at
