Button Up - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
I'm going to whizz through my post today as pins and needles in my arm are driving me crazy, ok crazier lol.
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies and I are featuring some Crafters Companion products on our creations this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to use them to join our challenge.
I decided to create a Spring card, much more CAS than usual but as my arm / shoulder hasn't been playing nice for a few days I admit I took the easy option lol.
 A big thank you to Crafters Companion who very kindly sent my lovely teamies and I some fabby products to play with. In my package were some green Spectrum Noirs as well as the 8x8 embossing folder I've used.
My card has been created using Simon Says Stamps "Green Apple" cardstock & I embossed some vellum to overlay it, and I added twine, pearls and of course a button.
It was nice to play with the Spectrum Noirs for a change but I'll be staying a copic girl as I prefer the soft brush nib that copic markers have where as the Spectrum Noirs have a nib like the original copics & Promarkers have.
 I have coloured the pretty Magnolia stamp with a mix of Spectrum Noirs and Copics as I only had green Spectrum Noirs, & the colours I've used are -
SN's - DG2, CG2, CG1, copics - C1, C00 / Y19, Y15, Y13

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 
Crafters Companion are also sponsoring our challenge with an additional prize so dig out your buttons and come and join us :)

Coco Bear & Tilda In Cotton Dress

Good morning lovely peeps,
I thought it was high time I sorted myself out & properly got back into the swing of blogging & creating as hubby thankfully continues to make good a good recovery after his stroke & is needing only a little care now, so I'm having a bit of a catch up day today, not only with my blog but Splitcoast Stampers & squeezing in a coffee or two with my friend Ali as I can't even remember the last time I managed to find time for a good old girlie catch up :)

Before I share my card please accept my apologies for the rubbish pictures! This little card was a commissioned card & I had to grab it back just as it was about to be whisked off out the door never to be seem by me again & I'd forgotten to photograph it! I didn't even think about lighting it was a case "here is your card", "umm can I have it back please" click, click with the camera and "there you go here is your card again" lol.
 I love making cards for little ones & have inked up & coloured an adorable Magnolia bear called "Coco with present" from the Merry Little Christmas 2012 collection for this card.
The copic colours I've used are -
E55, E53, E51 / C3, C1, C00 / RV63, RV10, RV00
 The papers I've used are from a Forever Friends paper pad, and the lovely XOXOXO border die & the hearts on the inside of the card are from gorgeous Simon Says Stamps 2014 Valentine release.
