Hedgehogs & Bottles! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello peeps!
 It's fair to say I'm not feeling the best at the moment!
My asthma has gone haywire due to a cold so I am back on the nebuliser trying to relax and avoid taking steroids, taking it easy and hopefully getting myself well again. It's feet up, blogging and colouring for me which is all hubs says I'm allowed to do, and for once I'm not arguing lol.

 It's Wednesday which means ..........  
& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
 My lovely teamies and I are featuring
products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with :) 
 As I wasn't feeling much like crafting I have created a quick and easy card using up a few scraps of card & paper, and cut the shape using nesties which is something I haven't done in a long time. I thought a smaller card than usual would be perfect for those little Hedgehogs.
The copic colours I've used are -
W4, W2, W0, R12 / E44, E43. E41 
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Stampavie & More - butterflies, City Crafter - use it up, Cuttin' & Stamping - anything goes, PDE Linky Party - animals, Get Creative - embossing, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - anything goes, ABC - D is for die cuts
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp
I also have a little something else to share which is a little different for me!
I popped downstairs to make coffee to take up to my craft room last week and starting having a potter in my teeny little old craft room when I noticed an empty bottle I'd salvaged from the pub Jodie works in. Jodie did think I was weird when I grabbed an empty bottle but when I said I was going to decorate it she rolled her eyes and said "she might have known" lol.
 The card I was in the process of creating got pushed to one side and I started playing.
I affixed my papers and lace around the bottle and die cut Simon's Clustered Leaves die and embossed the leaves down the centre to add some dimension. Many embellishments, paint and glitter later the bottle which was originally heading for recycle looked like this.
That's me finished for today peeps, thanks for stopping by

Waiting For Spring!

Hello lovely peeps :)
Today I have a card to share that I created using a Saturated Canary image. I don't know what it is about this image but I absolutely love it and will definitely be colouring this one up again using different colours.
This card was one of those cards that just kind of happened! By that I mean I was happily playing and it seemed like in no time had passed and this little card was finished! I guess I must have just been relaxed and caught up in creativity :)
 The sentiment stamp is by Cats Life Press and the small resin frame is by Melissa Frances.
This cute card will be available in my Etsy shop soon :)
 The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hat & tights - W4, W2, W0 / B41, BG10, BG0000, W0 / E33, E31, E30, dress - E87, E84, E81 / E53, E51, E50, Tulips - C3, C1, C00 / YG95, YG93, YG91, boots - E44, E43, E41, E40

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
