Morning peeps and hope all is well xxx

At last I am able to share some news that I have been dying to share. Those lovely peeps over at Simon Says Stamp have asked me to join their DT and of course, I said YES PLEASE - how could I refuse such a wonderful offer :)

And hugest of thanks to them all for having me xxx

But of course, it means you have to put up with me on a Wednesday as well now lol!!

So today is my first DT card for today’s Simon Says Stamp Challenge and our theme this week is

Coffee & Cream,

and the DT have all used Whiff Of Joy images this week.

And check out this prize ……..

which of course you are able to spend right here ….  :)

So using colours which you probably guessed are right out of the old piggy's comfort zone ….

… this is what I did.

I used Melinda Blowing Kisses and coloured her with Copics. Sorry chicks I threw the list away again – doh!!

I’ve been doing so well too!!!

Here’s some deets for you ….

Martha Stewart’s Flower Bed Punch and some layered  Nesties, complete with a button, a bow,  some lace and a bit of twine :)

I layered up  some Hero Arts white and cream flowers and added a glitter sprinkled brad in the centre.

Have EK Success 1/8” circle hole punch, will have lots of 18/” circles to make patterns with :)

It’s recycling as well cos these are the bits you usually chuck out.

And there’s my very first SSS DT card done.

If you get a sec peepsies, nip over and see what the other girlies have done.

And then have the fabbiest of days.

Hugs to all xxx

Gorgeous card Dawn - love the colours and really like the idea of using the tiny hole punchouts to make cheapie embellishments!! (I'll be pinching that idea - if you don't mind). Great news about your new DT offer and can fully understand them recruiting you.
