Relax! It's your Birthday!

Hi Everyone,

Where has this week gone it's Friday already?
I've had my head down, crafting away for most of the week. I've had some DT work to do then I was kindly asked to do a guest DT spot - more about that in a day or two - also this month and next is the busiest time in my family for birthdays and anniversaries so I have been beavering away making cards for friends and family. Probably why the week has gone by so fast.
Here is my card for today...

It's another image from Ladybug Crafts - Slobbing Nikki - I prefer the word 'relaxing' but that's what it's called.

I love these images they are so easy to colour and this one suited my friend, whose birthday it was, she likes nothing better than to curl up on the sofa in her dressing gown in the evening.
 
Hope you have a fun weekend!

Oh Lorraine...I got such a chuckle out of this one! She is really relaxing isn't she...love the box of bonbons beside her too!

Great colouring and a wonderful card!

I hope I will be relaxing in my new house too. We move Jan 23 and have 3 full days to move as the lady who bought ours gets posession here on Jan 26. Gives us time to get settled and get this one cleaned for her too.

We usually blitz the unpacking and picture hanging etc as we do like to make it feel like home as fast as possible.
DH wants to get the counters changed to granite like we have here now, and I would like to have dark hardwood floors, rather than that laminate that they have at the mo. But I want to do it next year as I have lived through a reno before and it is exhausting. Just want to move in this year and get the back garden and patios done this spring!

She certainly is relaxed Lorraine lol, wish that was me!! You asked about my pink colours, I generally use carmine, salmon pink, cocktail pink and baby pink. Usually three of those in combination, depending if I want it mostly light or dark. Hope that helps :) Have a great weekend.

I too wonder where the week has gone, I'm sure somebody steals a few days from me midweek, either that or I just don't have as many hours in a day! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Lisa x
