Ice Cream & Tilda - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I am so full of cold at the moment I'm told I am stinking the house out with Olbas Oil which I think must make a nice change from my usual White Fig & Patchouli burning oil, obviously I can't be sure of this as I can't smell a flipping thing lol. I can't believe I got through Winter with barely a sneeze & at the start of the lovely weather a heavy cold turns to a chest infection & I get a high temperature & I'm practically glowing lol. Typical, but I may at last get around to colouring some new stamps, updating my Etsy shop, uploading on Splitcoast etc etc, I've got to look on the bright side lol.

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring Studio Calico products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E000, E00, E11, R12, hair - E57, E51, E50, clothes & flip-flops - B23, B21, B000, bucket - R83, R81, RV10 / C3, C1, C00, shells - YR27, YR24, E00, ice-cream stall - W4, W2, W0 / C3, C1, C00 / R83, R81, RV10 / Y32, Y21, Y11.
I love the cute little boats & when I saw they were numbered I decided to use the boat with the number 2 on as part of my sentiment along with some of Simon's fabulous dies.
The gorgeous butterflies are from Simon's Mothers & Fathers 2014 Collection called Butterfly Drift.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -

I am trying to find that organised girl I used to be & I have what seems to be a never ending "to-do-list"! As I'm doing little else but chillin' on the sofa & blogging I am going to tackle the "blogs I'm following list" as I reached my limit a while ago of blogs I could follow & I noticed the other day while having a hop around that some blogs on my list don't exist anymore, or haven't been updated in three years, or even have been assigned to someone else & contain the most bizarre blog posts which I won't say what they are but they are in no way related to any form of crafting lol.
Don't panic if I follow your blog & you're still posting as I will not stop following any active blogs, I come across lovely blogs that are new to me all the time & I want to make room for them to join my reading list :)
That's me finished for today peeps,
