Back to work tomorrow....

Happy Sunday everybody...well I did intend to get more cards made this week whilst I have been on holiday but you know how it is when the schools are off....Holly had me traipsing all over and spending money. although she got bored and fed up once she had eveything she wanted!! Went shopping to Glasgow one day too....I thought it was bad enough shopping with Holly but my mother and Holly on the same them both dearly but omg!! Holly likes to go to Primark, Repbulic, New Look and then you go to the other extreme...the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, which confused Holly as we were in Glasgow. What did I buy....roasting bags from Lakeland, that was me so I think a little bit of internet shopping may be in order later today.

So for my card I have followed the sketch over at A Gem of a challenge although I have tilted it round, I have used papers from Fancy Pants - Summers End, I have layered each of the papers onto bazill card and distressed the edges, the stamp is from Lili of the Valley which I have coloured with copics. I have cut out some felt flowers with my MFT flower trio die which has to be my most favourite die but then you may know that!! I added a ribbon and a bigger bow than I would normally use but I think it looks ok.

I hope to be back shortly with another creation.

Gorgeous Fi.

I have her stamped out, her face and hair are coloured and she keeps going back to the bottom of the pile again. I must do something with her.

You'll be glad to get back to work for a break lol!!
