Glad it's Friday and I'm feeling better although my elder teenage son is poorly and I had to take half an hour off work this afternoon to go and collect him from Macdonald's, where he works and take him home - can't believe they wanted him to stay at work and sent him to the chemist for something to stop him vomiting, fortunately the chemist had more sense and told him to go home to bed and take paracetamol to bring his temp down. Hope he'll be feeling better soon too.

I made this card a couple of days ago but the light wasn't good enough for a photo either before or after work until this morning. The image is a freebie from a very generous and talented crafter called Anne Bodil who regularly shares her lovely digi stamps. This one was coloured with Promarkers and I added a little glitter with a gel pen and a water brush for a subtle sheen. The flowers are from Petaloo and the sentiment is a rub-down which I've had on my desk for ages. Backing papers are from Making Memories.

Entering this one for:
Digital Tuesday - It's all about the girls
Tuesday Throwdown - Paper pleating
Ai Factory - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything goes
