Let It Snow - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
My Christmas trees are up and twinkling at last, I have even made a decent effort at Christmas shopping, hopefully I will get it all finished by the weekend or is that just wishful thinking lol.

On to today's card -
& this week our challenge is

I so nearly went for the quick option and made a CAS card but I was missing my Magnolia's too much so out came a couple of oldie's for an inking.
The copic colours I've used are -
 body - C3, C1, C00, BV000, B0000 / YG15, YG13 / RV00,  hat, gloves & scarf - C3, C1, C00 / RV95, 9V93, RV91

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 
Simon Says Stamp
Don't forget to visit the new SIMON SAYS STAMP STORE BLOG  for lots of fabulous inspiration, candy, and lots of  lovely new or featured products.
 I'm entering my card in the following challenge-
Make It Monday - anything goes

My lovely friends at Simon sent me a gorgeous selection of Washi Tapes to play with and I couldn't resist squeezing in a little more play time and came up with a CAS card and gift envelope.
 After hearing stories ages ago of untrustworthy posties slitting envelopes & giving them a shake to see if money etc falls out whenever I send a gift voucher or even cash / cheque in a card I always make a mini envelope to pop it in and attach it to the front inside flap of the card & that way it's not obvious there is anything of any value inside the card.
Simon's cute little envelope dies are perfect for this and I simply ran some washi tape along the inside edges and a matching strip down the front before popping an Eliza snowflake on to pretty it up. Easy peasy and so quick to make :)
If you missed my previous post with mini candy in & want to win some of these -
keep on scrolling.
I just had a horrible thought! I am working today and both my posts are scheduled so if the mini candy post is missing don't worry, you aren't blind & I haven't gone totally mad lol, I will sort it out when I get home from work :)
Thanks for stopping by
