Tag It & Box It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
Apologies for being a little late with my post today, I have been having some very annoying technical problems. I think I'm going to have to admit defeat and buy a new laptop and I will most definately never buy another pink one!
On the bright side it's been a lovely sunny day here today, shame I was working but fingers crossed we get many more of nice days ahead especially for the poor people still suffering from flooding here in the UK & not only that I'm getting very bored of rain & gales lol.

On to today's creation -

& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are featuring
 products 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 :)
I so nearly created a card and added a tag but as tags aren't something I generally create I thought I'd go for it and challenge myself to make what I think is only my second tag! Lazy me lol.
The sky background has been created using distress inks & I've stencilled some cute falling stars over the ink using embossing paste. I have used loads of Simon's fabulous dies on my tag and the sweet Tilda I've used is called Winter Skating Tilda.

The Copic Colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E25, E31, E50, clothes - B97, B95, B91 / C3, C1, C00 / B24, B21, B00.

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 tag in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes

I have another creation to share today which I made for the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog during the "Die-cember" celebrations which I've not yet shared on my own blog. Luckily making the tag jogged my memory about the gift box as I always like to add creations to my blog as a blog is like a diary I always think.
 As I was the lucky girl who got to feature Magnolia's gorgeous Doo Hickey die's I wanted to use as many as I could on this sweet little gift box which I created to pop a bracelet inside for a friend.
I really enjoyed making this little box and to be honest I used some Doo Hickey's that I hadn't used in ages which is one of the things I love about featuring different brands / products for Simon Says Stamp, it's always nice to rediscover lovely stash.
 The copic colours I used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - RV95, RV93, RV91 / C3, C1, C00, basket - W4, W2, W00, flowers - E40, E41, E43

There are only a couple of days left to enter my Martha Stewart candy, so if you haven't already entered and would like to click the piccy in my sidebar.
Have a wonderful evening & thanks for stopping by
