Whatever The Weather! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!

I've had to take a couple of weeks break from my DT due to tendinitis & trigger thumb which is incredibly painful & the splint I need to wear is really restrictive so I've not been able to do anything creative. I can't even take the caps off my copics myself at the moment which is really frustrating.

I couldn't make my card with my hand and thumb in the splint so I got creative with surgical tape & emery boards & made a smaller splint which I am regretting now as the pain is really not nice, but the plus side is I did manage to finish this card.


This week our challenge is
Whatever The Weather!

The design team are featuring

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

This week I am featuring Sunny Studio's Cable Knit Embossing Folder on my card which wasn't what I had intended to feature but it was the easiest option as I had to improvise due to my hand.

My image is Simon's beautiful Blossoming Clear Stamp from the new Fresh Bloom release, and the sentiment is from Simon's Friendship Messages stamp set  
I kept the embellishments simple and just added some of Simon's Flickering Butterflies & Simply White Crystal Drops.
