Shabby Chic & Love - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
Blogger has not been my friend on & off this week & I even fell out with Inlinz on Monday as my pictures wouldn't display properly, thankfully Inlinz was fine again last night & today so Blogger best be behaving too lol.

I've had a busy morning rushing around taking hubs for a hospital appointment and then running errands & going out for luch in town so this afternoon is feet up and "me time" that is if I don't just fall asleep lol.

On to today's card -
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are featuring MAMA ELEPHANT on our creations this week, if you have any we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge :)
As you can see with today's card I went a little Shabby Chic as I like to mix it up and alternate styles from time to time but as usual there is just a little bit of sparkle :)
The copic colours I've used are -
RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91 / YR14, YR00

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 
Simon Says Stamp
Don't forget to visit the new SIMON SAYS STAMP STORE BLOG  for lots of fabulous inspiration, candy, and lots of  lovely new or featured products.

 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes, Scrap Creations - fav embellishment (pearls)

I have another card to share which blogger wouldn't let me post on Monday and I've used some products from Simon Says Stamps beautiful new Valentine release.
 I have used a gorgeous drawn hearts background stamp & the letters from Simon's All About Love stamp set and stamped them with Simon's new Sea Glass ink. I absolutely love this colour, and there is even matching cardstock available :)
These stamps are so versatile which makes this card not only perfect for Valentine's but also for an engagement, Wedding or Anniversary.
There are many more colours in the range, take a peek at Inlinz below there is a link to all the colours as well as the goodies I've used in there.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Everybody Art - heart, Cuttlebug Mania - show us some love, Sweet Stamps - lace & hearts
It's time I went and put a warmer top on and cranked the heating up a bit me thinks, coffee would definitely help warm me up too lol.
Thanks for stopping by
