Think Pink! Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I am thoroughly enjoying being on annual leave for work & I have found my mojo!
The last few weeks I've felt as if my heart hasn't been in creating, I have just been going through the motions creating my DT cards & creating custom orders, but not feeling as if I have been giving my best, or really enjoyed & appreciated spending time in my craft room. The last few days I have relaxed, slept, been a whirlwind of creativity & I have even enjoyed some blogging time again :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Think Pink! 
As you know October is breast cancer awareness month. Apart from using some pink on our creations we all need to have a good feel of our breasts and if we notice anything unusual then we need to get them checked by a Doctor. If you are due for a Mammogram, make sure to make the appointment!

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. 

My fabulous teamies & I are featuring
Pink & Main
 goodies on our cards this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we'd love to see them.

On today's card I have featured some lovely stamps from the adorable Coco Cafe stamp set. I've paper pieced the mittens from Simon's Winter Warmth stamp set using MFT's Watercolor Wash paper pad and then fussy cut & glittered the mittens up. The pretty pink doily background paper is from Kaisercrafts new Christmas Wishes paper pad & all the dies I have used are Simon Says Stamp exclusive own brand dies.

The copic colours I've used are -
E11, E00, E000, R30 / E44, E43, E41 / C3, C1, C00 / RV95, RV93, RV91 / R85, R83, R81 / W4, W2, W0 / R89, R59, R39/
