Greetings peeps...hope you've had a good week while I've been away :-D I had a lovely time in Tossa de Mar with Sadie but I'll tell you all about that tomorrow and show you some of the pictures. I have one or two stories that might just make you chuckle lol.

I had planned on pre-posting a couple of cards before I went but ran out of time so I downloaded the pictures onto my ipad to do while I was away but for some reason the pictures wouldn't upload ...does anyone else have this problem with their ipads?

I do have a card for you today using another one of the Nikki digi's. This time I've used Slobbing Nikki...I would love a day of slobbing around in my pj's, watching movies, eating popcorn (salted of course) but I can't see that happening any time soon lol. The card is for my niece whose birthday is on Sunday...whaddya thunk?

It's kinda busy huh lol. I had the mojo blues so just kept adding...wish I had faux stitched around the larger floral circle to keep it matching the bunting but hey time. I got a bit carried away with the glitter too...which isn't a bad thing really...the more sparklicious the better ;-D

Why I insist showing closeups with my over the line colouring I don't know ... looks like Nikki smokes 60 a day lol!!!

A little peek at the inside

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
My Grafico Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Use a Banner (I hope bunting counts!)
Totally Stampalicious - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with optional Celebrate (birthday for mine)

There was a little technical hitch with the website while I was away so to make up for it I'm going to extend the sale for another week!!! If you missed out here's your chance to grab a bargain 
or 2 ... why not start your {ahem} Christmas shopping?!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll pop in tomorrow cuz I might just have a little something to tell you ;-D

Catch ya later x

What do you mean you would love a day of slobbing?! You've just returned from a holiday and was kind of assuming it would be a relaxing one. Isn't it funny how we usually need a break AFTER our holidays LOL?
Even though your card is busier than usual, I still like it. Love the sparkle too. I'm sure your niece will also love it.
Don't know about the iPad. I still need to create an account for mine. When I tried to create one after my iPad arrived a few weeks ago, I was tired and not thinking clearly, so instead of my year of birth I actually entered 2012. Duh! So now Apple keeps tellling me I don't meet the age requirement for creating an account!

Whimsey said...

Oooooo I love it - the sparkle around the words - MAGNIFICENT; and her sparkly towel-wrapped head, WHOA, you've got to be about sparkled out. LOL

I had to do a double-take to figure out the smoking know, clean living Mary Poppins, M. Pee...WHATEVER, was a bit clueless there.

Welcome back!

Loving it big time Kerry!!! every little bit is perfect, whether stiched or not, it's a stunner!.x

Kathleen said...

Really love this card, the colours and ppaer choices are brilliant and especially like the way you have done and placed the sentiment.
Must get on with my challenge card tomorrow, I have done one but then discovered that I had a senior moment and put white ribbon on instead of pink, when the line I chose had in it pink ribbon.
Glad you had a great holiday.
