Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp!

Hello lovely peeps!
I've had a busy week off work & my craft room is now looking so pretty :)
We've been decorating & I have also had my first play at using chalk paint to paint a Welsh Dresser which used to be my dad's & & I also painted some shelves with it & love the result. I've told Jodie she can't move back home again as her old bedroom is now my perfect, pretty craft room lol.

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

& this week our challenge is
Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing 
 products on our cards this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
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've used an adorable Penny Black stamp set called "Make A Wish" & I'm so happy that at last I've made a "proper" card again lol.

The copic colours I've used are -
mice - E35, E33, E31, E30 / RV10, RV000
leaves YG67, YG63, YG61
berries - N9, N7, N4 / R89, R85, R83
 flowers - C3, C1, C00 / YR24, YR23, YR20 / RV95, RV93, RV91 / R83, R81, RV000
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Die Cuttin Divas - the great outdoors, Fan-Tastic Tuesday - anything goes, feminine, Top Tip Tuesday - bingo (bottom row, twine / punch / stitching), Tuesday Throwdown - Summer fun
I finally gave in and bought a new laptop at last so hopefully blogging will become enjoyable again rather than the challenge it has been! As for that ruddy pink laptop, I am so going to enjoy taking a hammer to it lol.
Thanks for stopping by
