Totally Resistible! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
We are on that downwards slope towards the Winter, I even had to scrape the ice off my car before I could drive to work yesterday. Thanks goodness we have Christmas to look forward to during those cold, bleak months, & on the subject of Christmas (again) I have a Christmas card to share with you today.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Totally Resistible! 
There are so many resist techniques that we can use! We will be looking forward to seeing what you use to resist!
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. 

My fabulous teamies & I are featuring
 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 Impression Obsession adorable Snow Couple & French Background stamps. 
I stamped the French Background with a Versamark Watermark ink pad & sprinkled white embossing powder over it and then heat embossed it. I also created another emboss resist panel by randomly stamping some of Simon's pretty snowflakes and heat embossing these also. I lightly inked over the heat embossing with distressed inks for a soft watercolour effect as I also used some lovely pastel paper from MFT's Watercolour wash paper pad to stamp my sentiment on.
The copic colours I've used are -
C3, C1, C00, B0000 / E47, E37, E34 / W4, W2 / B23, B21 / RV95, RV93, RV91

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

 I only have to work a long day tomorrow & then I am on much needed annual leave for 12 days :)
I'm so looking forward to relaxing & spending some time in my favourite room as it's been pretty hard to find any craft time lately & I have soooooo many new craft supplies that I can't wait to play with.
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
