New Somethings ..... Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps & a very Happy New Year to all.
Yes I am back at last, I'm so sorry my poor little blog has been idle for so long. I have been a very poorly girlie the past few weeks and many antibiotics, steroids, painkillers and nebulisers later I am feeling a bit better but I can't ever remember feeling quite poorly for so long, or being so exhausted! I've pretty much spent the lead up to and all of Christmas & New Year in my PJ's snuggled on the sofa or in bed so you'd think I'd be full of energy by now but I still feel I could sleep for England, and win a gold medal at it lol.
A big thank you to everyone who has emailed, text or Facebook messaged me asking if I'm ok, it's so lovely to know I was missed :)
 
 I have lots of catching up to do and I have 3 cards to share today!
 
 It's Wednesday which means ..........
 
 
 at

 My card today features many of Simon's lovely products as I have created my papers using some Simon stamp sets and Simon's Surf Blue ink pad.

We have something very minor here, but it just won't let us go, and all I want to do is sleep, too! Let's hope the New Year chases away all the nasty germs hovering around out there.... LOVE your sweet baby card today, what a dear image that is!

  17. Wow! What a stunning trio of cards! They really show your versatility as an artist and I loved how each one was so totally unique. Good thing I don't have to pick a favorite because I liked them all and enjoyed seeing them so much. The colors and texture and elegance of the first card are so striking and you interpreted our old/new theme beautifully! On the second card, I was really impressed by how energetic and striking you made the color white feel. On the last card, I thought it was brilliant to use traditional Christmas elements like ornaments with a totally unexpected color palette. Well done, well done!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
