Gorjuss Bookmark & Tilda - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
Last night I intended to attempt an early night as I'm half way through a 13 hour shift right now & on call tonight so thought sleep might well be beneficial!
Instead of getting busy scheduling my blog post last I ended up sitting in the dark with my patio curtains open & garden lights switched on so I would be able to see Roger the stay cat as he hadn't visited for his tea! Eventually this cute little black & white face peered in at me through the patio doors at 11.10pm & I was so relieved to see the dear little fella as it's not like him to miss a mealtime. I then sat in the garden in my pj's chatting to him while he had his feast & then he was happy to just sit beside me purring for almost half an hour when it occurred to me that by the time I get my post typed and products linked I would now not get very much sleep, and that I am a complete and utter soft touch lol.

Today I have two cards to share again as I didn't get around to posting a new Magnolia card on my blog at the weekend so am sharing it along with my DT project.

It's Wednesday which means ..........    

& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing 
My Minds Eye
 products on our cards this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

As you can see I have created a bookmark as my DT project this week and used a cute Gorjuss Girl stamp called New Heights.
I've used a Prima tag to create my bookmark as they are the perfect size not only for Prima Dolls but also for this Gorjuss Girlie as she is a large stamp. The butterfly and the corners are also stamped using some accessory stamps from the New Heights stamp set. I have paper pieced the dress which is something I don't do very often for some strange reason!
Apologies for not being able to link my MME pad I have used, I only had it delivered two weeks ago but can't find it in store at the moment.
 The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - C9, C7, C5, tights - C3, C1, C00 / YR01, YR00, YR000, heart -YR24, YR23, YR21, books - W6, W3, W0 / B93, B91, B000, G43, G41, G21 / RV52, RV11, RV10 / E55, E53, E51
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

My second card today features a sweet Tilda from Magnolia's Sakura latest release & she is called Cute Sakura Tilda.
I am so annoyed I missed the deadline for ordering the stamp club this time, I kept an eye out for the Magnolia reminder email but didn't get one this time :(
I've used some Maya Designs papers on this card along with some of Simon's lovely Woodgrain & Sea Glass card.
I've recently discovered another box of stashed embellies containing the Mirabelle brad, Woodware ladybird & lots of lovely other items so have added them to this little card.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes - B41, B24, B21 / C3, C1, C00, flower - R85. R83. R81 / YG95, YG93, G40, flowerpot - E15, E13, E11
 I will add this little card to my Etsy shop asap :)
