peek- a - boo....

Thought I would post this quick card while I am waiting on Michael phoning to say what's happening...i could be up a while. He is heading home early from T in the park as the gigantic wig wam him and his friends took has been wrecked and their sleeping bags are soaked...they are not happy bunnys!! Now as most of you know T in the Park is not really near anywhere and no train station and the nearest one being in Perth and the first train is at 5am to Edinburgh...oh the worries, no wonder I have grey hair!!

So when I say a quick card, I started colouring last night but put it all together tonight!!

The stamp is new from Sugar Nellie and is called Peek a Boo...isn't she purty?? I have coloured her with DI's. The papers used is from Kaisercraft - Utopia and First Edition - Up, Up & Away which I have stitched around. I punched 3 circle out and cut a spiral and rolled them into flowers...I did have a die but it seems to have gone AWOL. I added little pearls to the centres and layered them onto a section of a flourish die cut. I added the message and a little glitter to the pressie and balloons...hope you likey!!

Very nice! I do like those flowers so much, thanks for showing that you don't need a die to make them look spiffing!!

I hope Michael gets home ok - I recall camping in the rain when I was a kiddy-wink, and once the wet gets inside there really isn't anything to do except go home! I sympathise!

luv, Mags x

This is adorable, Fi! I just love that image.

Too bad they got rained out, hopefully he has a quick and quiet trip home! I think they try to make our hair go grey, just so they can make fun of us ;) We've had a boatload of rain here, time to start building an ark :(

Gorgeous card, Fi. I love the colours, that image is super cute and the flowers beautiful. Had a go at making flowers similar to yours, but didn't work out - maybe my spirals were too thick?!
Hope Michael made it home ok with only limited additional grey hairs for you!
