No Designer Paper - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
The weather is changing far too quickly for my liking & as today is Autumn Equinox it's downhill all the way now until Spring, I'm a happy little soul today aren't I lol.
I've not been feeling great the last few days, I've got a cold & my poor shoulder doesn't like cold or wet weather so I've been dosed up on painkillers and doing lots of colouring and pottering in my craft room. I absolutely love my gorgeous new craft room and have spent pretty much two days in there busy working on some card orders & reorganising my stash.....again lol.

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

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing
Taylored Expressions
 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. 

Today I have inked up sweet little North Pole Tilda along with my Taylored Expressions You've Got Mail Christmas stamp. I've created a nice and simple background using a Taylored Expressions "Sheet Music" embossing folder and a Martha Stewart punched border.
