Tickled pink!

Not in a great mood.  Back to work tomorrow, hmmph.  Been thinking about packing the day job and trying to make enough money making cards - but the sums just don't add up!  So back to work tomorrow, lol!!

Tonight's card is a birthday card for a little lady and I think those sweet Cherrie images are perfect for any girl  under the age of 14 - or older in fact!  I used the Tickled Pink Stamp monthly challenge sketch and here is my card...

That's it for today!  Back tomorrow for Totally Ladybug Tuesday so see ya then!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Imaginisce birthday papers
Stamps: Cupcake Cherrie digi stamp, My Favorite Things sentiments 
Mediums: Copics and ProMarkers, Diamond Glaze (on balloons)
Accents: buttons from stash, Bazzill white floss
Tools: Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilities label die (inside card)

Hi Mary, I'm feeling exactly the same as you :-(. And I've tried to do the math as well and it seems I can't give up work either! I need to find a lovely rich man! If you know any......! The card is just lovely. I like the purples and beiges together and love the cute buttons. Pami x

Oooh Mary J I lOOOVE it. It is perfect in all is purply goodness.

Such a shame about the numbers not stacking up. I keep telling hubby that I will make a living out of card making yet, and he just nods his head, right after he has finished rolling his eyes at me, lol.
