Cozy Mittens - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I can't seem to shake this flu like virus off which is driving me crazy & what is really concerning me is I am being actually having to be quiet for a change as even talking hurts lol.
I haven't had the energy to put my Christmas trees up yet which is so unlike me. I'm one who always has the house decorated for Christmas on the 1st December every year, and what with my lack of Christmas spirit as well at the moment I'm scared I'm turning into The Grinch lol.

On to today's card -
 
for
& this week our challenge is
MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND

My lovely teamies & I are featuring gelli plates &/or stencils this week :)
This week I have used a stamp I'd forgotten I had, I love little surprises like that it's like having new stash all over again without the trauma of paying for it lol.
 I usually use glitter snow when playing with Simon's Christmas stencils, but on this card I thought I'd try painting Gesso on the stencil over Core'Dinations whitewash cardstock and I love the soft & textured look it gives.

The copic colours I've used are -
RV95, RV93, RV91 / C3, C1, C00

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

 I'm entering my card in the following challenge-
Make It Monday - anything goes
I really hope my post makes sense as I'm so tired I can't even think straight and I'm fighting to keep my eyes open, I really need my nice big comfy bed and a bar of chocolate of course lol.
Thanks for stopping by
