A very Pink Birthday!

Hello all and I hope that your weekend has been going well - and that the weather has been kind to you. A bit of a grey start to the day here - but I'm hoping for a relaxing day whatever the weather! We finally got my son packed and off for his exchange week in Lyon in France, and deposited him (together with about 40 odd others!) at the coach pick up point at 6am this morning! They all looked a bit bleary-eyed but excited - so I'm just hoping that he has a good week! As my daughter is away this weekend too, my hubby and I are on our own for the day - which is a very rare occurrence!  Of course, we've still got Tilly the Dog and Grumpy Poppy to torment us.  Tilly's feeling a bit sulky today - partly because son and daughter aren't here (and they always fuss and play with her a lot) and partly because I got her a new 'doggy deodorant' yesterday, so she now smells faintly of baby powder.  Now this is a definite improvement as far as I'm concerned, but for a dog who loves bouncing about in the beck in the field at the back of our house, or gets so excited if she finds some fox poo to roll in, I've a feeling that smelling of baby powder just isn't hitting the mark for her lol! I'm sorely tempted to try it on the cat too, but I've a feeling that I may end up with some nasty scratches rather than just a sulky look!

Anyway, Sunday morning waffle over!  I was asked to make a birthday card for a little girl - and I think this cute LOTV stamp just fitted the bill!


I've coloured the stamp with copics and promarkers and added a little Stickles as well although I'm not sure it shows up on my pics! 

The backing paper is from LOTV and I've embossed some pearly pink card with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The banner die is from LaLaLand and the ticket stamp and die are from Whimsy. The ribbon is from stash with some pearly hearts from WOC. 
A big thank you to all of you for leaving such lovely comments on my blog - they really do mean so much, especially on the days when I'm feeling over-worked and under-appreciated! And it's so nice to browse around everyone's blogs and see what fabulous creations you come up with! 
Back soon,
Kim x 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

  6. A lovely card for a little girl Kim. Love the embossed touch. I had a giggle at the doggy deodorant, Suzy's problem is not what she rolls in but what she eats...she is partial to horse poo, so it's quite a blessing that collies are a bit mean with their kisses!! xx

  17. Ooooh how cute, Kim! Beautiful colours and great colouring.
    Must say I am loving the idea of doggy deodorant! I need some of that for my 3. Fox poo has to be the foulest smell in the world and dogs just love it. They can be so gross sometimes! :)
