Just a quick post - as always am running round like a headless chicken - have stripped and re made bed, flicked a duster round, had a cursory run through with the hoover and ironed some of the pile..... (did you hear that Teresa???? Ironed... yes I did say IRONED - LOL)

Have an evening function some two hours drive away, (best frock at the ready!) - so it's a stay overnight followed by a visit to BarjanB tomorrow to meet up with Maureen.
Hope the weather improves for this afternoon's journey - it's currently bucketing down here and the M6 is not my favourite piece of road at the best of times!
Onto the card - a LOTV image, coloured with promarkers and then cut out with a nestie and placed onto another die cut frame. I added a die cut corner in the same dark pink.
The papers I have had in my stash for ages and as I am determined to try and make a dent in the paper pile the ones at the bottom got pulled out and used!

The sentiment is a freebie from TLC.  Dark pink grossgrain ribbon, ribbon roses and a few pearls to embellish.... and the same colour schme and papers carried on to the inside.
