Baby It's Cold Outside! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
I'm feeling quite pleased with myself as I bought another two Christmas presents yesterday :) I need to step up the rate of making Christmas cards now and hopefully I will actually be organised this year and ready for whatever evil Christmas throws at me, as the last two have been a disaster!

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

& this week our challenge is
Food &/or Drink
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing
Simon Says Stamp's
 fabulous own brand goodies 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 stamped and masked the images together and then coloured them with my copics. I was annoyed with myself as I totally forgot I had the dies that go with these cute stamps & only spotted them sitting beside my Cuttlebug ready to open & use when I was tidying away after finishing my card!

The copic colours I've used are - 
E43, E41, E40 / E74, E71, E70 / E55, E53, E50 / E34, E31, E30 / C3, C1, C00

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