A Hint Of Pink! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Apologies for my little unexpected blogging break, I haven't been 100% well for sometime & am keeping my fingers crossed that my latest strong dose of antibiotics does the trick at last!
I have done very little in the way of crafting lately & am itching to get back in my craft room again now which must be a good sign :)

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
A Hint Of Pink

 this week the design team are featuring


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. 

On today's card I have stamped Hero Arts beautiful Fabulous Flourish stamp in Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink. I have literally had this stamp for years but I don't think I've used it before! I find my wood mounted stamps get neglected as they are stored in a large box & I  forget they are there & tend to always reach for my clear & rubber stamps. The pretty butterflies are also wood mounted & I have stamped my favourite butterfly three times, coloured with copics, fussy cut & then sparkled with Hero Arts ultra fine glitter before adding to my card.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Creations - anything goes, Crafting From The Heart - anything goes,  Inspiration Destination - anything goes, Lemon Shortbread - anything goes

I have several new items almost finished for my Etsy shop, including some wall hangings which some customers have been waiting for, so I will add the finishing touches and upload them all asap :)

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