Baby Edwin - Simon Says Stamp DT Card & Whopping MAGNOLIA SALE!

 Good afternoon lovely peeps,
I hope you weather is as beautiful as ours, it's hot, it's sunny, there's a gentle breeze it's just perfect :) 
 Last challenge at Simon Says Stamp was anything goes & it was so popular we all got to see some beautiful entries but I have to say a big round of applause to my lovely teamies as my goodness you guys kept us busy with hours of commenting, I think we all have seized up fingers now lol.

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

My lovely teamies & I are featuring Tim Holtz 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 :) 

This card took me hours to make, I just wasn't feeling crafty and kept getting distracted by the state of my craft room & wanting to tidy and reorganise it, so I kept sitting there day dreaming about how I could reorganise it lol.
I'm one of those people who can't relax in an untidy environment so my plan is I have Thursday & Friday off which will be spent attempting another ruthless sort out in my craft room so I am happy in there again :)
You can tell it's bad as hubby is the untidiest person I have ever know & even he has threatened to evict me if I don't sort it out as he's fed up with trying to fight his way to the freezer past all the boxes, baskets and piles / mountains of stash lol. This threat is coming from the man who can trash a house within minutes of coming home so I still don't think it's quite as bad as he says, after all it's stash not mess lol.
I rarely make Father's Day cards as it's the one challenge I like even less that CAS as I still miss my lovely dad like crazy & wish I was lucky enough to have him with me to spoil him. I usually make a card for hubbs but as he was in Portugal last year on his Harley club holiday & didn't have his Fathers Day card he can have last years, ssh don't tell him lol.
As you can see I have had a rummage around in my stamps and used some neglected cuties that I've not inked before & have gone with the Masculine theme & made a baby boy card which will be popped in my Etsy Shop later.
The Copic colours I've used are -
Baby Edwin - skin - E11, E00, E000, E00, R12, hair - E43, E41, E40, clothes & crown - B23, B21, B41, boots - W4, W2, W1, W00, dummy / soother - B00, B0000
