Furry Friends - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
Apologies peeps I am running a bit behind today!
You could say it's been one of those days / weeks & I am counting down to my holiday. I'm not going away I am just so looking forward to being able to do as I please & have no long shifts to work or nights on call. I will have two whole lovely weeks off and I feel as if I've never needed a break more than I do right now.

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

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing some lovely
Newton's Nook
 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 have at last had a little play with my copics again! I haven't coloured an image in weeks & it was strange but nice to get colouring again. I'm on a mission now to colour a Tilda or two over the next couple of days I'm sure that will kick start my missing mojo......hopefully!

The copic colours I've used are -
N5, N3, N1, N0 / RV95, RV93, RV91 / R85, R83, R81
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says Stamp has a flash sale on Simon brand goodies so here's your chance to snag some gorgeous goodies at a bargain price!

 It has been an incredibly stressful morning as our dear old dog Dude needed an operation this morning & as he's 16 years old we were even more worried than we usually are when one of our fur babies needs an operation.
Thankfully Dude is now home, well & fast asleep, & he continues to amaze us & our vet by how strong & fit our old boy is.
That's me finished for today peeps, whatever you are doing I hope you have a lovely day.
