Two bits of news!

So my first bit of news is that it's my birthday today - happy birthday to me!  We are going out to an amazing restaurant for dinner tonight and then tomorrow spending the day at a live music festival with my family.  It's gonna be fun!  I'm afraid that I won't be doing my usual weekend blog rounds but I'll be back in the swing of it on Monday!

Okay, my second bit of news is that this is the last of my July/August guest designer inspirational makes for Inky Impressions.  I've had a fab time designing with the gorgeous stamps so a big thank you to Inky Impressions for having me on board!  So for my finale I decided to use the gorgeous Shy Little Nickie with some flat backed pearls..



 
I used My Mind's Eye Darling Dear papers and my Grand Nestabilities Scallop Circle dies.  I used my trusty old EK Success flower punches and a Pink Petticoat sentiment.  Well, I hope you like her and once again a big thanks to Inky Impressions for having me!



I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Hello Mary.
You have made a beautiful card for your farewell to Inky Impressions; little Nickie is adorable and putting her on a circle card compliments your design perfectly.
They will miss your inspirational work.
It is one lovely card.
