Terrible Two's - Addicted To Stamps DT Card & Surprise Candy Winner

Hello peeps,
I was up nice & early but have got absolutely nothing done, I'm far too chilled out to be bothered lol. I fed all my fur babies about 7am & it was so cold & foggy outside, my Daisy Mae is a fair weather girl so she was soon back inside to cuddle up & I snuggled on the sofa with a cup of coffee & Daisy Mae who was purring away & just dozed on & off, I kept half opening my eyes every now & again for about 2 hours which is most unlike me, but I decided it was really nice to just chill out in that half asleep, half awake state & must do that more often as I never usually sit and do nothing. If I'm sitting down I'm usually either making a card, colouring, using my laptop, making pins etc or having a coffee & a chat so "lazy time" was a real novelty for me & it was lovely lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& for the next 2 weeks we have a fabulous sketch challenge for you
I do love a nice sketch to play with it I always find making cards so much quicker when I know what I'm doing lol.
My card today is one I made for my scummy great nephew Ollie as he was a whole 2 years old last weekend, I can't believe our little man is 2 already! As he is now officially in the "terrible two's" I thought I'd use Mo's super cute image just to be sure his mummy & daddy know how lucky they are to have such a little angel lol.
 Copic colours used -
skin - E00, E000, E11, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, top - B95, B93, B91, dungarees - W4, W2, W1, W00, socks - C1, C00, B91, B41, BG70
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges - 
Inspire Me Friday - anything goes, 2 Sisters - anything goes,
 I was so annoyed last night when I was doing the draw for my surprise candy winner as this flipping pink thing crashed & I wasn't sure if I'd managed to save the image of the winning number or not but thankfully there it was all saved phew lol.
The winner number as picked by Random.Org is -
 number 1 = DAISYCHAIN

I have some new candy all ready to be photographed but what with having my lazy day I haven't got around to photographing it yet so I will post it another day :)
