Bling It On

Yay yay yay :) can't believe I'm actually smiling (though I've been up since 3.30 this morning so maybe I'm going loopy from lack of sleep) but I've only got one more day in work (how cool is that new job and my first week is only 3 days long - breaking me into it gently lol) and I got home to find that half of my parcels have arrived woop it's like Christmas again (but Christmas with discount lol) and got some other news too but you'll have to wait hehe (it must be contagious everyone seems to have news that they're keeping to themselves lol).

Anyways I'm off to Ian's straight from work tomorrow (hoping that they won't keep us there till 5 on the dot as I think I've only got 15 mins to get from work to the platform then. And then Friday morning we're off to visit some of Ian's friends so we're down there for the weekend be nice to have a break.

Anyways enough waffle, onto the card... this is a card for one of our friend's birthdays, I've used a sketch to get me started, and used 5 papers - not like me to have that many on - but I love this sketch, great for using lots of paper scraps up too. And of course plenty of gems (with an extra couple for her earrings) I love the way it's turned out I have to say lol


Supplies: 'Handbag Nikki' and Sentiment Stamps by Ladybug Crafts Ink, 'Pretty Please' Papers by My Mind's Eye, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Turquoise & Red Ink Pads, Ribbon from Stash, Gems, Promarkers, Copics, Glossy Accents

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






Right I'm off to pack for the weekend, thought I'd been really organised cos I'd already given my bag of clothes to Ian to take for me, but realised this morning that I've forgotten to give him my boots and trainers doh will have to take them to work with me lol - so much for being organised lol

Incase I'm not back on before, have a lovely weekend everyone XOX
