Pretty In Pink

Good Evening,

Phew, we made it to Friday!  It's been a bit of a job trying to adjust my body clock after more or less a fortnight of late nights and lie ins, fortunately Iona has coped with it better than I have and has been a wee star this week.  Other news that deserves a mention is that my husband has been smoke free for a week now - yay!!!  I feel so proud of him and hope he keeps going.  I think he will as he can see the financial as well as health benefits and is eyeing up a new laptop as I type lol!  Luckily he's never been that heavy a smoker and never smokes at home (expect for a few sly ones in the shed!).

My card tonight is one I've made for one of Iona's school friends.  I've used my old faithful Teddy Beau freebie stamp which I love to colour in.

As usual the stamp has been coloured with Promarkers then mounted on scalloped and kraft circles.  I'm afraid I don't know the brand of the papers, they were individual 12x12 sheets and I can't even remember where I got them, which is a shame as I'd rather like to get more of the spotty one!  The sentiment is another old faithful from LOTV.  I've finished off the card with various buttons, ribbon and a glitter number and flower.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
