Spring Pinterest Inspiration - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello peeps!
I hope you mummy's out there had a lovely Mother's Day. I worked a 14 hour shift on Mother's Day but my babies treated me with gorgeous cards & gifts :)
I haven't achieved much crafting wise this week as I've been trying to do a bit of Spring cleaning & I do tend to get a little carried away when I'm in a cleaning mood! Hubs long standing joke when I'm in a cleaning mood is telling the "kids" and fur babies to keep moving before I cover them in Bees Wax or tidy them away, & to be honest he may have a point lol.

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

& this week our challenge is
Spring Pinterest Inspiration

I have made this mood board for us to use, choose one or more pins from this board for your inspiration ! Spring has arrived in some areas and is on the way in others (at least on half the planet), and Easter is on the way, as well! There are many places to find inspiration!
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
 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.

Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I am guilty of having ahem, let's just say quite a lot of Magnolia stamps that are very neglected, especially the accessory stamps so I am going to make more effort to use them again.
I couldn't find the lamb I used to link to so I have linked to another from the same collection, the fancy corner is made with Martha Stewarts Crafters Clay & I've altered a little Prima nest again to make it smaller.

The copic colours I've used are -
Tilda - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E43, E41, E40,hat - E53, E51, E50 / Y32, Y21, Y000, top - RV63, RV00, RV000, dungarees - B23, B21, B0000, boots - W3, W1, W0
Rabbit & Lamb - C3, C1, C00, RV00
Magnolia Tree - W6, W3, W0 /G43, G40, G21 / R85, R83, R81

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