A Bit O Green - Simon Says Stamp DT Card & Divine Tilda

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
OMG the weather here is horrible today. It's been pouring with rain & we have gale force winds giving my fences & everything else in the garden a battering. Roll on Spring sunshine & warmth :)

Apologies for being a little late today, air head here hadn't realised my post was only saved in draft & not scheduled.

Today I have my DT card to share & also a long overdue Tilda card as well.
It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
A Bit O Green
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
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. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring 
Clearly Besotted
  goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

 Today I have created a really simple baby card which I had a nightmare photographing as the light was so bad & my daylight lamp has broken! Hopefully after retaking my photos today they will look better on my blog than the one featured on the challenge blog, as I didn't dare change the photo on there for fear of killing the Inlinz after the post was scheduled lol.

There is absolutely no stamping on this card which is really weird for me! After die cutting the stars & train I popped them in the lovely Swiss Dots embossing folder & whizzed them through my cuttlebug before highlighting some of the embossed dots with a white gel pen.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp

I've had two Magnolia cards sat on my desk for weeks just needing embellishing but time & energy have been so short of late that they have just sat there neglected for far too long, so this morning I was up early & finished them both :)
I wondered how long it had been since I actually created a Magnolia card so looked back on my blog & saw that this is the first I have created in 3 months!!! I still adore sweet Tilda but with working long hours & sorting my mum & Tony's house out on my days off I've just not had the time to enjoy creating my usual style of cards. After this week I should be able to indulge in more crafting time, I have missed creating cards like this.

 The copic colours I've used are -
skin E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E44, E43, E41, clothes & boots - C3, C1, C00 / R59

I've had some lovely Etsy customers email me asking if I'm going to start selling cards & pins again & the answer to that is "yes, soon" :)
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
