A Bit O' Green! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I have at last got a couple of days off work & I am beyond shattered! 
Tomorrow I'm going to be hibernating in my craft room as any time off I have had off work lately I'm too tired to be bothered with anything after working all these 14 + hour shifts, so I'm determined tomorrow is play day :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
in honour of St Patrick's Day
 this week the design team are featuring some fabulous

Taylored Expressions logo

products on our cards.
If you have them we would love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to enter our challenge.
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. 

Today's card features Taylored Expressions Sheet Music embossing folder which I have used to emboss white card stock & then added a few ink splatters with distress inks.
The lovely sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps latest New Beginnings release & is from the Hand Lettered Encouragement stamp set.
I would have shared a card using these stamps on the New Beginnings release day but  my package didn't arrive in time unfortunately, but you can view the whole collection by clicking HERE.

The copic colours I've used are - 
skin - E11, E00. E000, R30, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - C3, C1. C00. G40 / G94, G43, G40, shoes - N9, N7, N5.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

My little Etsy shop has now been updated :)

I have a new camera & am slightly confused with all the buttons & settings so I am going to try and get to grips with that this week! I'm not very patient with learning new technology but thinking back I almost deleted my blog after a week of not being able to work out how to do everything, so I AM going to persevere!

That's me finished for today, thanks for stopping by
