Simon's In Love - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

 Hello peeps,
My baby boy Gareth is house sitting for friends for a month while they are visiting family in Australia and my poor boy is not happy :( It's so cold & their house has no central heating which has come as a massive shock to him, he still comes home for a bath/shower & wraps up as if he's off to the North Pole when he leaves lol. It's surprising what we get used to & take for granted, when I was growing up our house didn't have central heating & I know I would find it so hard now if I wasn't able to just flick the switch or set the timer & have heat, we've all gone soft and been spoilt lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week Simon says - 

My lovely teamies & I are featuring our very own SIMON SAYS STAMPS EXCLUSIVE products on our cards this week :)
I've resisted going all out pretty and girlie & made a card for hubby, I'm sure it would look better with lots of flowers & sparkle on it though lol.
Hubby is a dog lover so Simon In Love is the perfect stamp for his card, it's so cute :)
The copic colours I've used are -
Simon - E29, E27, E25 / W1, W00
Simone - C5, C3, C1, C00 / RV95, RV93, RV91

  2. OOh this is such a cute and sweet one Mandy!!!
    Your poor boy, it's like survival for him!!!!! I grew up with only a stove in the living room and we would all cuddle up just in front of it. Going to bed was a freezing experience whahaaa!!! My 29 year old daughter gives me the look whenever I tell her about my childhood..we're soooooo spoiled and even with a temperature of 21 in the house I'm cold (should be ashamed but am not lol!).

  13. What cute dogs! I love your 'heart of hearts' it's just gorgeous!

    We had no central heating when I were a lass - in winter Jack Frost always left pretty ice patterns on the windows! Brrr!

    I hope your shoulder gets better soon.
