Wrap It Up - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps!
It's a cold & wet day here in the South West but I don't really care about the weather as I am on holiday :)
The last few days I have been busy in my craft room, catching up with more sweet blogging friends & getting ready to re-stock my Etsy shop.
While I have been busy creating hubs has got into his colouring therapy book & at last he has found something he is happy to do when he's having a bad day & not up to doing very much. He has now also discovered how easy it is to lose track of time while happily creating lol.

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

& this week our challenge is
You can make a gift wrapping, a tag, a card with some ribbon or twine wrapped around it, or maybe you have another idea of your own! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
We are showcasing
 products on our cards this week.

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. 

I use May Arts twine on most of my creations so this was a really easy challenge for me & today I have used it differently by wrapping it many times around my sentiment.
I have used an older sweet Tilda on today's card & I still think she is adorable. The pretty lace flower I have cut from some lovely Prima lace & I have used some gorgeous new Bo Bunny papers (all linked at the end).

The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E44, E43, E41, clothes & shoes - B23, B21, B00 / C3, C1, C00, flowers - RV93, RV91, RV10 / G43, G40, G14
