Winter Birthday - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
The sun is shining & it's really mild here today & I'm keeping my fingers crossed we don't get the snow we are forecast tomorrow! That's a sure sign I'm getting old as I used to love the snow lol.

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Winter Birthday
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

Lawn Fawn logo

 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.

I've used some Lawn Fawn stamps & dies on today's card, the cute Winter Sparrows stamp & dies set, Hugs die & the presents are from the Home For The Holiday's stamp & dies set.
I've also used Simon Says Stamps Falling Snow stencil to make it more obvious my card is for a Winter birthday. Again my card is very simple this week due to being unwell & as simple as it is this took me days to create due to only being able to sit at my desk for short periods as I ache so much. Thankfully my antibiotics must be working as I am feeling a little better today, fingers crossed it lasts!

The copic colours I've used are -
Sparrows - E44, E43, E41 / C3, C1, C00 / R12, R01, R000, presents - G43, G21, G40 / Y23, Y21, Y000 / R12, R01, R000 / C3, C1, C00.

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

    Also, I recently saw you comment on a mutual friend's FB post (we have 17!)... lovely Becky, I believe. I am going to send you a request so I can sprinkle you with sunshine and be available if you ever need me! I typically only use it for crafty love and prayerful support, but I love any chance to deliver a wee bit of happiness. :) Have a wonderful night, dear friend.
