Busy week!

What a busy and fun week this week has been, firstly my sis Gillian and her husband Steve came to stay for a few days and we were quite active - yummy family lunch with my other sis Karen and her family, visiting Mum, shopping, visiting Lynsey in her new flat, more shopping, going to the pub, lunch in Ikea, walk along the prom at Portobello (Neil's old stomping ground). It was lovely to have them here and we enjoyed our few days. Then it was back to work and, on Friday, an interview for my old job at the library, a bit wierd as I was working on Friday and spent most of the day trying to suss out all the other candidates while they waited for their interviews, quite nervewracking! However I got the job so it was a big relief and a reason for a small celebration (couple of glasses of wine) on Friday night!

Today's card is a just for fun card, Gillian had brought a couple of new stamps from LOTV with her and let me stamp a few images for myself, thanks Gill, so I was dying to colour one up and make a card. I used my Promarkers to colour the image to work with the great backing papers which I had received in the post from my teamie at Creative Inspirations Corry who had a wee challenge recently and sent the participants something for taking part - thanks so much Cor it was a lovely surprise (will pay it forward too)! I made the roses myself by cutting circles of paper into spirals, glueing them into rose shapes then spritzing them with Tattered Angels mist, scrunching them then waiting for them to dry before opening them up. The sentiment is a rub down from Papermania.

Had a great time too wish it could have been longer! Love the card especially the flowers, I have been meaning to try that with paper instead of felt, they look great!
