Girly Birthday

Sorry about the poor pic quality - am getting worse I think taking pics!
A quick post from me - card made in a hurry for a little one's birthday with one of the cute LOTV girly images. This is a pre coloured image (needs must when it's wanted in a minute!!)but I over coloured it with some watercolour pastels as I never think these pre coloured images are bold enough.

Once coloured cut out with a nestie then popped onto another die cut scalloped edge circle. Pus some glamour dust onto the balloon.
The gingham paper was another one languishing about in my stash and I cut out some corners from the pink base card.
Finished it with some lace and a pink organza bow and carried the theme into the inside.

Have been out and about again last couple of weekends - weekend before last it was Hereford and Cornwall and this last weekend it's been Warwickshire (Edgbaston) and Worcester.  And this weekend it's Carlisle then Kent!

Enjoying it though but am really looking forward to week commencing 26th when I have nothing for 6 whole days!

Got to make lots of thank you cards (for all the places I'm going to) as I've used up what I had in my stash, desperate to make a start on my Christmas cards and simply have to catch up with my DT stuff!!!

Challenges -
Fab n Funky (Square), Creative Card Crew (Ribbon), Cutie Pie (Pink), OLLCB (Pretty in Pink), Use your Stuff (Ribbon)

Thanks for visiting. Off for a trawl through blogland and a catch up with you all. x

Good morning Viv, have you ever totted up your mileage in any one year?
This is a gorgeous card, and you don't need to worry about photograph quality, it is just a record of something you made, not like taking photographs of scenes aor anything like that! :o)
