Snowflake Kisses - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
I'm still coughing, wheezing and feeling wiped out but I do feel so much better than I did last week thankfully. All the things I wanted to get done while "resting" didn't quite happen as all I wanted to do was sleep & I didn't have the energy to fight tired eyes so sleep is what I did.

Gareth & his girlfriend came back from holiday in Menorca on Monday, & Jodie is off the the TT Races in the Isle Of Man tomorrow, so just as I get on top of one lot of holiday washing another will appear, fabulous lol. Hubby was going to go to the TT Races as well but he's not up to a few days camping yet so he'll be staying home watching it on TV instead this year which he is disappointed about but it's another goal for him to work towards on his road to recovery.

On to today's card -
& this week our challenge is
My lovely teamies and I are featuring Lil' Inker  &/or Newton's Nook 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.

My eye was immediately drawn to this little cutie when browsing in store for a stamp to use on my card & it's called "Snow Mouse" by Lil' Inker.
I like to make different style cards from time to time & must have been in a "distressing" kind of mood when I created this card as I got a little carried away with my scissors & gesso lol.
The copic colours I've used are -
W4, W2, W0 / R83, R81, RV10 / C3, C1, C00 /RV93, RV91
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

ABC Christmas - K is for Kiss,
It's raining here today which is nice as that means no need to water the garden & no need to feel I ought to go out and do some gardening as I don't think I've even been out of the back door for a week. There is always a bright side, you just need to find it lol.
That's me finished for today peeps,
