Cute & Cuddly At Simon Says Stamp & Miracle Love Tilda

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
I intended posting on Monday but blogger wouldn't allow me to upload photos for some strange reason & it would have been a pretty rubbish post without photos lol!
Anyway I'm here now thankfully, photos and all lol.
It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Cute & Cuddly
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
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. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring 
Simon Says Stamps
  lovely exclusive goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

 I had a bit of brain freeze while making this card & didn't have a plan or clue how I wanted it to be so it just kind of happened after much faffing around!
I opted for pretty Spring pastels as I love pastels, it's always the softer the colours the better for me. I have featured Simon's adorable Circle Friends Stamp Set & again used Simon's Copic Friendly Card Stock to stamp these cute little bears onto.

The copic colours I've used are -
B23, B21, B0000 / RV52, RV000, RV0000 / G43, G40, G21.
As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -

Next up I'm going to share the card I tried to post on Monday!
I've used sweet little Miracle Love Tilda from Magnolia's A Touch Of Love collection & she was lovely to colour. The papers are old Magnolia papers & I've lightly distressed the paper edges with scissors & pumice stone distress ink. The sentiment is an old Cat's Life Press stamp & all of the others are by Magnolia.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E55, E53, E50, dress - C3, C1, C00, wings C3, C00, B0000, hearts - R89, R59
