Virgo Tilda For Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps,
After a crazy week at work last week where I worked that many hours there didn't seem any point going home lol, I had a very, very long sleep and then decided to shut myself in my craft room for a few hours and it was bliss. I love my little haven in the attic with just Daisy Mae (cat) for company and a few hundred Tilda's of course, and just crafted until hunger got the better of me :) I was a little worried my mojo was off on it's hols but all I actually needed was sleep and peace and quiet to get the mojo up and running again :)

On to today's card -

& this week our challenge is
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring Memory Box products on our cards 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 thought it was high time I inked up the adorable little Virgo Tilda from Magnolia's Zodic collection, gorgeous isn't she?
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E43, E41, E40, dress B24, B21, B0000, flower C3, C1, C00 / YR23, leaves G99, G94, YG63

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 have decided I need to make a few changes to allow me more time for blogging and the first being no more working 70 hour weeks, and the second being gag the husband lol. Seriously since hubby's stroke he hasn't been able to work and I am struggling with finding some "me time" to enjoy visiting my blog friends and I have to figure a way of changing that so I've decided I need to find him a hobby! I will be making suggestions very carefully as this little crafting hobby he discovered for me is very expensive so I won't be making that mistake when suggesting hobbies for hubs lol. I have got him started on Pinterest now so that should keep him occupied for a while lol.
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by
