Anything Goes At Simon Says Stamp!

Hello lovely peeps!
I've had a busy week off work & my craft room is now looking so pretty :)
We've been decorating & I have also had my first play at using chalk paint to paint a Welsh Dresser which used to be my dad's & & I also painted some shelves with it & love the result. I've told Jodie she can't move back home again as her old bedroom is now my perfect, pretty craft room lol.

Sparkle & Shine & Sneaky Tilda! - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello lovely peeps!
I am stuck in a rut at the moment with my crafting :(
I can't seem to get motivated these past few weeks so I have been looking through Pinterest, my blog & visiting friends blogs trying to find some motivation to play.
Maybe I tried making myself get back into it too soon after losing my beautiful mum, or am just too emotionally & physically exhausted to be bothered with anything! I am taking a much needed holiday from work as I haven't even enjoyed my job like I usually do, so hopefully a break from working long hours & being on call at night, & just being able to spend some time at home will do the trick.

 Due to having no mojo at the moment I opted to make a quick and easy card which I really don't like but as I wasted so much time sat in my craft room sighing & grumpy I had no time to make what I call a proper card lol.
I built up the layers on this quick & simple card & then die cut and adhered Simon's "Season's Greetings" & then placed one of Simon's Bokeh Lights stencils on my card and glued sequins on the centre of each circle.
As this card took all of about five minutes I also made another really quick and easy card just using some more of Simon's lovely dies, sequins & glitter cardstock.

As my card making efforts are so poor at the moment I was browsing through my blog last night trying to find some inspiration and realised I had not blogged a card I created for my great-niece Casey, so at least I do have one decent card to share with you lol.
The papers I've used are old ones by Magnolia,& I stamped Casey's name on the mini tiles using Avery Elle's Lovely Letters as I wanted her name to look more "swirly" than was printed on the little tiles.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - C9, C7, C5, clothes - RV55, RV52, RV00 / C3, C1, C00, boots - W3, W1, W0
That's me finished for today peeps, I'm going to have a lovely hop around more gorgeous blogs seeking the kick start to my motivation that I need :)
Whatever you are doing I hope you have a lovely day.
