Places to go....

Good morning all and I hope that your weekend has been relaxing and enjoyable! It's a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK so I'm hoping that the weekend will carry on for another day yet lol!  We had lovely warm sunshine yesterday and although it's a bit cloudy this morning I'm hoping that the sun will break through again. Mind you, after watching the awful consequences of the tornado in Oklahoma this week I said I wouldn't complain about our weather again, whatever we get!
And thank you for all your lovely comments - I just want you to know that they are all read with pleasure and appreciated SO much!
I've promised a BBQ today if the weather is ok - so we'll no doubt end up with the usual 'cast of thousands' as my hubby puts it! My daughter's boyfriend has now finished his finals at Uni so is back with us again (he's been very busy revising, a very studious boy!) and my daughter only has a couple of exams left. My son has finished school for half term and should also be doing some revising as he has exams in a fortnight. He did tell me last night that he was revising his Latin with his mate on Skype - but I don't think it lasted long because then I heard his guitar strumming again! Sigh.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this card with you using Stella from Bugaboo digi stamps!  She's great! I just love her attitude (in fact, I think I'm probably Stella in real life!)

I've coloured the image with promarkers and flexmarkers 

The backing papers are from First Edition, with some sheer ribbon from Joanna Sheen and eyelets and gems from stash. 
Hope you enjoy what's left of your weekend! 
Back soon,
Kim x

  3. I love Stella too and think she's a fab, 'who the heck cares' kind of chick! This card is so cute and makes me grin when I look at it. I like that green car which is shaded so perfectly and those are very nice papers and a great layout. Have a good weekend.
