Simon Says - Sweet Days

Hi my friends, it's the 1st day of February already, the month of love and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I'm sharing a card I made using Simon Says February Sweet Days card kit, perfect to send to sweet treat loving friends just to let them know how much they mean to you. At time of writing, the card kit is still available to purchase or if you wish, you can also buy the individual items in the kit HERE.

I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4" and applied Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink through the Simon Says 6" x 6" Hearts and Stars Stencil included in the kit using a mini round blending tool.
I inked the images from Simon Says Sweet Days stamp set with Simon Says Intense Black ink, stamped on to scraps of Distress Watercolor card, coloured with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Watercolor pencils and a Distress Detailer Brush and fussy cut.
I coloured a scrap of Distress Watercolor card with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide and die-cut the shadow layer using Simon Says Fancy Love die. I die-cut the word 4 times from Distress Watercolor card and layered to create dimension.
I fixed the do-nuts in place with Distress Collage Medium, added Love and the heart circle popped up on Simon Says Foam Squares and added sentiments trimmed from Simon Says Reverse Best Friends Sentiment Strips.
To finish I matted the panel on to Simon Says Doll Pink cardstock, included in the kit, trimmed to A2 and fixed to an A2 white card blank.

I'm currently swopping my craft hat for the DIY Project Manager hard hat and starting out on a huge make-over nightmare, one of those "have I bitten off more than I can chew" tasks. I'd been thinking for some time that my bedroom was in need of a spruce up but that idea was accelerated when the ensuite shower sprung a leak sending water running down the walls of the room below. The plumber arrived and the only way to gain access was to smash one of the big floor tiles in the en-suite leaving a huge gaping hole in the floor. My favourite joiner is coming this week to discuss options but realistically what are the chances of lifting all the floor tiles without damaging the wall tiles so I'm bracing myself for the "ripping everything out and starting again" option, but, that's life and in the big scheme of things, it's just another " pull up my big girl panties" catastrophe to deal with. If ever the time was right for treating myself to a big box of sweet sugary Donuts, it's NOW.
Happy Days
