Christmas! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
I've been busy with some card orders the past few days as well as battling with a nightmare headache which fingers crossed has at last lifted. I am so annoyed with myself as I packaged up a card order for a large card for a Silver Wedding Anniversary & I sent hubs off to deliver it & then realised I forgot to take photos! So I did all that work & have nothing to show for it now, well except money of course & there's not much point photographing that to share with you lol.

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

& this week our challenge is
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. 
On today's card I have featured a cute MFT's In The Woods stencil & MFT's Fishtail Flags dies.
As always there are a few lovely Simon Says Stamp own brand goodies on my card. The sentiment is from SSS So Very Merry Stamp Set, the tag is from Simon's Large Tag die set, beneath the image I have trimmed & added the Snowflake Banner, & the cute little snowflakes are Simon's Stitched Snowflakes. I've used the die cut from the Stitched Snowflakes to add some little snowflakes on my tag using distress inks. 

Everything I have used you will find in the link up at the end of my post. I have had messages asking me where to buy products so if you aren't familiar with the Inlinkz just click on the photo of the goodies & the wonder of technology will take you straight there :)

The copic colours I've used are -
Bear - E37, E33, E31, E30, Holly - G94, G43, G40 / R59, hat - E44, E43, E41 / C3, C1, C00, balloons - W4, W2, W00 / E55, E51, E50 / Y28, Y26, Y21 & white gel pen, present - W4, W2, W0 / Y28, Y26, Y21 / C3, C1, C00,  Poinsettia - E84, E81, E40

 Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned Paper - anything goes, The Sisters Of Craft - anything goes, Stampavie & More - snowflakes

After the sad & sickening news from Paris week I woke up this morning & learnt the shocking news that a rugby legend had passed away much too soon.
As some of you know I love rugby and this man was an absolute phenomenal player & my son's hero since he was a little boy. Some children have batman, the hulk etc as their superhero, but Jonah was Gareth's.
Sweet dreams Jonah x
