2 Tilda's Today! - Simon Says Stamp & Addicted To Stamp DT Cards

 Hello lovely peeps,
 I have been one unhappy bunny the past few days as I haven't been able to come on line :(
My flipping pink laptop was working fine, I enjoyed a lovely blogging session for over 4 hours hopping around & suddenly I couldn't connect to the Internet. The stupid pink thing kept telling me it had no network driver installed!!! I was so mad after several phone calls to the technical help people and having to perform three destructive recovery's which totally wipes everything off your computer & then having to keep installing the programs I use that my patience finally ran out so the flipping thing is boxed up awaiting collection for repair or replacement as it's only 9 months old, so I am going to attempt to see if I can get my old laptop to work as it's horrible being without one.

Apologies peeps I have a double post today due to not being able to get on line & post my
DT card, this fortnights challenge is 
The Copic colours I've used are -

PAPER PIECING
My lovely teamies are featuring Lily Bee Design products on their cards, mine unfortunately have gone astray so I can't feature them today but the papers I did intend featuring are called Victoria Park & they look lovely.
I am trying to be good and instead of reaching for one of my new Magnolia's I've been rummaging through my collection and I'm using a little Tilda called Shy Tilda which was one of the first I bought but never actually got around to using.
The Copic Colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, dress - R85, R83, R81 & paper pieced, socks - C3, C1, C00, roses - R85, R83, R81 / YG97, YG95, YG93

I'm in a very snowy Somerset today :) We had a few inches of snow yesterday & overnight just as last weeks snowfall was disappearing and it's still coming down thick and fast now. Depending on which way the wind is blowing we keep having to brush snow off the satellite dish so we can watch TV & use the Internet but everywhere looks so lovely under a blanket of snow. I'm off to go out and play in it again with Jester (puppy) as he absolutely loves the snow which is just as well as those mean children of mine won't come out & play in it with me anymore lol.
That's me done for today peeps, wish me luck for getting my old laptop working as I won't get a look in with using hubby's as he has 3 days off when he finishes work in the morning.
