Little Angel & Black Beauty - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I've scheduled my post today as when it publishes I will no doubt be yawning my head off day dreaming of Kit Kats & coffee while I am attending an epilepsy training refresher course, & I've a feeling it's going to be a long seven hours. I just hope the trainer has a nice voice that keeps us interested and not one that just drones on or I really will switch off & be day dreaming of chocolate lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies & I are featuring Authentique & / OR Bottle Cap Inc products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge :)
Can you believe your eyes I've created another Christmas card! The reason is I couldn't decide which Tilda I liked best & wanted to colour so I coloured them both :)
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, E00, R12, hair - E43, E41, E40, headband - YG95, YG93, YG91 & white gel pen, dress - W4, W2, W0 banner - C3, C1, C00
The gorgeous resin tree is by Melissa Frances and I picked it ages ago in a DT spend & put it in a safe place, so safe that it has taken me months to find lol.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a fabby $50 is store spending spree

Don't forget to visit the SIMON SAYS STAMP STORE BLOG  peeps for inspiration, candy and lots of  lovely new or featured products.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges - 
Make It Monday - anything goes

I also have a card to share which I made last week & forgot I hadn't blogged until I discovered the photo's on my camera earlier. I've used some of Simon Says Stamps gorgeous new exclusive products on this card & I made it Colm for the young man hubby keyworks who gives me strict instructions exactly what he wants on his card each year lol. 
I confess it was made in a bit of hurry as hubs didn't tell me he wanted it early as Colm had an early birthday party last weekend with his family & unfortunately I only snapped a couple of piccy's so hubby could whisk it away, I guess two is better than none :)
The new Simon Says Stamp products on this card are the lovely clouds and the happy birthday sentiment stamps. Colm's name & age have also been stamped using other exclusive stamps, all goodies can be found linked at the end of my post.
My craft room is driving me mad at the moment as I need to be more ruthless in sorting out & selling on some stash. I like neat and tidy & in such a tiny room I am now even running out of floor space & I'm not relaxing in there as I can't stand the clutter so drastic action must be taken or I won't even be able to get in there soon lol. Seriously it's lovely having my own little space even if it is only 7ftx7ft & I share with a three and a half foot chest freezer but the strip of carpet that isn't covered in furniture or storage boxes & baskets  is getting narrower & narrower I'm going to have to learn how to levitate to reach my desk before long lol.
That's me finished for now peeps, thanks for stopping by
