Pretty in pink...

Just a simple one today, using one of my favourite little Gorjuss Girls from Sugar Nellie that I haven't used for ages...




I'm still feeling awful, but luckily this one was more or less done so I just had to put it together and that was it... it could maybe have done with some extra 'stuff' but I quite like it how it is.

The image is Bumble Bee, and I paper pieced her dress and used a Prisma pencil to add a bit of shading.  The rest is coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers, with glamour dust for her wings.  The papers are Papermania, the white circle was embossed with the 'swiss dots' folder.  Whimsy pennant stamps and matching dies from The Stamp Basket, pearls and pink Bazzill thread from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Feeling very guilty today - I was supposed to be taking the boys to a birthday party, the first proper invite Dex has had from one of his nursery friends... usually he just gets to go because Morgan's been invited to one.  But of course I've got this horrible chest infection or whatever it is, and woke up this morning sweating, shaking and feeling sick, so we can't go.  Dex is disappointed but he's been good about it really - I did promise he could have his own party for his birthday in January though lol - haven't actually told hubby that bit!  Doctor's appointment tomorrow, so hopefully, fingers crossed, they'll give me some antibiotics without too much begging.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
