Die Crazy! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
I've had a crazy week at work & I am so pleased I have two days off to recharge my batteries!
It's my baby girls birthday tomorrow and I am yet to finish her birthday card so I really am a woman on a mission trying to get it finished as it's a proper Mandy style card with lots of pretty embellishments on :)

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our last weeks special challenge & blog hop, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

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

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I decided to do some faux embossing on this card so I die cut several of Wplus9's Seasonal Sentiments and adhered them to my card & then ran the card through by cuttlebug. I kept this card nice and simple as I didn't want to detract from the background so just added my favourite SSS Snowflake and a few gems. The sentiment is also by Wplus9 & is called Pretty Patchworks Stamps.
Sometimes wishing someone a "Happy Christmas" seems to be the wrong thing to say when you know their heart is breaking & they are overwhelmed with grief which I why I chose to add the sentiment wishing them "Hope".
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
