A better day already..

I can't believe how bad yesterday was...ok, nobody died or anything thank goodness but it was almost like someone or something was stopping me getting things done. I even had to phone my friend Sally back after she called to apologize for being so out of sorts!!

Anywho...that was yesterday and this!!

My neighbor asked me last week if I would make a 1st birthday card for her Granddaughter Darcey and could she have the card for the 5th. No problem...until she reminded me yesterday about her card!!! So I got to work last night and I must say for the first time I 'done good under' pressure lol! I know I shouldn't praise my own work but I should tell you that it's not often I do that...I'm always finding fault in something but this time I love it! I've had these Penny Black stamps for a couple of years and they haven't seen much ink in that

time...oh the shame. But for some reason I went straight to them and this was the result. I hope my neighbor will be happy with it. Main cs are Bazzill and SU!, ribbon SU!, pp Doodlebug. I've had the alphabet stamps for about 5 years and I don't know why I don't use them more as I love the font and they're super easy to use, they're PSX Love Letters Alphabet Set, all lower case.

Here's a close up of the bears..they're so cute! I coloured them with my Prisma pencils and Sansador. While I was typing this up my neighbor arrived for the card and she loved it! AND the colours match Darcey's room which was a total coincidence...job done ; )

I'm off now to play with a new toy I received in the mail this morning. All to be revealed tomorrow!! Have a great day.

Catch ya later x
