Oh Dear..

Just a quick post today cos I'm feeling really rubbish, woke up with the start of a cold and ear ache so am still in bed feeling sorry for myself anyways got to get on cos stuff to get done later, so thought a quick post while still here cos not sure when will have chance to post again.

Anyways this is a Retirement card that my mum wanted for one of the girls in work, very pink - was having withdrawal symptoms cos the last few have been so un-pink lol, in fact don't think there's been a pink one for weeks - I must be ill lol. 

I love these papers they're some of my favourites, I've lost count of the number of scrapbook pages I've used them on so thought I'd use them on some cards quick before they're all gone and my album looks all the same lol

As usual had problems takening pictures of the glitter and sparkle, there's a row of gems down the left side of the front of the card (on the dots of the paper), glitter on the book and cup, and then all over the red flower, and then there's the epoxy dot for a bit of extra sparkle

Supplies: 'Coffee Nikki' and Sentiment Stamps by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Blush' Papers by Basic Grey, Flowers by Petaloo, Epoxy Dot by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Pink Ink Pad, Gems, Copics

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

I cheat and buy double fold cards without the aperture, saves the messing round folding lol.

Love the coffee nikki and slobbing nikki for retirements with the sit back relax and enjoy sentiments, think they work really well.

Get well soon too Mary J
