Simon Says ....Let's Get Krafty & Tilda With Angel The Horse

Hello peeps,
I had an amazing day in London on Monday with the very lovely Heidi and Steph from Simon Says Stamp and some of my fabulous Simon Says Stamp teamies. We enjoyed chatting and getting to know each other properly "in real life" over lunch so much so that lunch took us all afternoon lol.
A massive thank you to Lols for organising such an amazing day for us all, and sweet Heidi for treating us all to a fabulous slap up meal, the memories will keep me smiling until next time!

I have two cards to share today as work has pretty much taken over my life of late and I have lots catching up to do! Crafting & blogging has had to be put on the back burner, even hubby said this morning he feels like he hasn't seen me in ages! It's time I thought of me & made time to enjoy doing the things I love, all work and no play makes Mandy a dull girl, and we all need some sparkle in our lives lol.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........
& this week our challenge is
Get Crafty - Use Kraft
My lovely teamies and I are featuring Hero Arts products on our cards. If you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to join in our challenge.
On today's DT card I have featured the beautiful Winter Scene stamp and Kraft paper by Hero Arts. As always a few Simon Says Stamp exclusive goodies have snuck onto my card including some Poinsettia flowers made with one of Simon's new dies, & I have at last found a white ink pad that I love! I have bought a few different white ink pads over the years but never discovered one I really like until now, and better still it's a Simon exclusive :)
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. 

My next card today is one I created especially for Simon's STAMPtember®  Store Blog feature so it's about time I shared it on my blog :)
 The copic colours I've used are -
Tilda - skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E27, E31, E50, clothes - C9, C7, C5 / C3, C1, C00 / E53, E51, E50
Angel The Horse - E33, E31, E30 / E53, E51, E50 / E59, E57, E55 / C1, C0, C00
This little card will be in my Etsy shop later
I am going to leave you with one of the photos I took on Monday.
As well as meeting up with lovely friends in London I really hoped there would be time to go and see the Poppies at the Tower Of London as did my teamies JoCaryn, so that was where we headed after a very long delicious lunch.
We certainly weren't disappointed it was such an incredible sight to see & were even lucky enough to see and hear a lone soldier walk in amongst the Poppies and play The Last Post. A truly beautiful moment :)

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