Pippi Longsocks

Well I'm a bit late today aren't I?  It's nearly tomorrow!  I've had a lovely day but have hardly stopped... had my hair done (all cut off in a very short bob!), went clothes shopping with hubby (and actually bought stuff this time), to the cinema to see Spiderman (much better than I expected, really enjoyed it), and finally got in the craft room to make this card...




I mentioned yesterday that Morgan had been through my box to find a card for his 'girlfriend' Katie... there are lots of girly cards in my box, but the little darling (ahem...) rejected them all!  He had a look at my stamps and chose this one - the rather fabulous Pippi Longsocks from Sugar Nellie.  She's coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers with lots of glamour dust on her wings, and Viva pearl dots around her.  The papers are Making Memories, with dark brown cardstock from Papermill Direct.  The corner is a Whimsy die, flower buttons and pearl are from my stash and the sentiment is LOTV - very appropriate because Katie's actually having two parties and Morgan's going to both of them :o)

I've followed Fi's fab sketch at The Sugar Bowl again, and also made it for this week's challenge on the Sugar Nellie facebook page, which is to use your favourite colour combo.  A tricky one for me, because I don't really have a favourite - I just like colour in general... but I've used pink, yellow and orange that I do love using.

I suppose I'd better start thinking about going to bed now lol... hope you've had a lovely day, I'll catch up with you all tomorrow :o)

Gorgeous card and of course he wanted his mum to make a special one just for her and particularly fabulous it is to. I am just surprised he didn't want her name on it lol. Sounds like an exciting day, and how spooky but I am off to have my hair cut, shopping (craft stuff though not clothes) and have a movie night planned. Hugs, Amanda x
