Angel Of Peace, It's Cold Outside Tilda & Candy Winner - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
Are you all ready for Christmas? I have at last written & posted all my Christmas cards & bought all the presents, I now have bags & bags of presents needing wrapping, anyone know where I can hire an Elf lol.
 I kind of feel I cheated a bit with my Christmas cards this year as I created lots of flat, CAS cards to post as it was a case of needs must! I just haven't had the time to create lots of my usual style cards since hubby's stroke, let alone make a box for every card I send. I knew I could make about 20 CAS cards in the time it takes me to make one of my usual very embellished cards, let alone the hours I've saved not making a huge stack of boxes, so apologies to everyone who will open a Christmas card from me and think "where the heck are the flowers" lol.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........

& this week our challenge is
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring
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.

 Today's card features one of my favourite Penny Black stamps called Angel Of Peace.
 I have made good use of my everyday papers again rather than Christmas papers as I wanted a nice soft coloured card for this image. I've used some different Stickles glitter on this card & it isn't as fine as I usually use but I think I like it!
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E44, E43, E41, dress - C3, C1, C00, wings - C1, C00, V000, BV000, B0000, branch - E43, E41, E40 / G93, YG63, YG61, Dove - T3, T1, T0

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

Simon Says Stamp

 Craft-Dee-Bowz - anything goes with a hand tied bow,  Crafty Hazelnuts - anything goes Christmas, Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper Challenge - anything goes
