Girls just wanna have fun!

Good morning! Hope the sun is shining wherever you are - and thankfully it is here today! It's amazing what a difference a bit of blue sky and sunshine can have on your feelings towards the day - I actually feel as though I have some energy and need to get lots of jobs done (especially before it rains again lol!). So before I head off to do some of the never-ending housework (yuck!) I thought I'd share this card with you - a perhaps appropriate one for a sunny day!

Don't those ladies just look fab! It's an Art Impressions stamp called 'Girlfriends' - and I think it's such a fun image. I'm not suggesting that they look like me & my friends, but..... lol!
 I've coloured the stamp with promarkers and added a few mini gems & pearls (well, they would be wearing a bit of bling wouldn't they??)

As it's quite a large stamp, I wanted to keep the embellishments fairly minimal. The backing paper is K&Co and I added a length of plaited sheer ribbons - although used a few choice words under my breath as it kept unravelling on me and was perhaps a better idea than actually worked!  The die cut flower is from a Marianne Creatables. 

But I think that great sentiment stamp (from the Whimsy ticket range) says it all! 

Hope the card has made you smile today!  It made me smile when I was colouring it in! 
And thanks for the comments about the dentist! - thanks, it did go ok!

    Thank you for your kind concern. I'm continuing on with pre-scheduled posts - they are staggered as I can only post them when given the go ahead. My wrists are easing nicely so hopefully I'll be able to get back to my 'normal' routine soon, whatever that is!! :)
