Sugar Nellie Lilac Monochrome Little Girls Birthday Card

Good afternoon to you all, and to my new followers and to those of you who are mobile blogging whilst on their holidays - and you know who you are :)
Today I finished a very special commission for a work colleague, which had become for me  a labor of love, dedication and commitment. It will now allow me to get to the garden a little. Yesterday we went to B & Q and purchased some stepping stones, to allow me to move around the raised bed more easily, can't wait to get in and clear it, but today the wind is a little to nippy for my liking and we have just had a heavy rainfall.  Maybe tomorrow will be better, or we hope it will be as DH Matt is going fishing. Which as you all know leaves little old me alone with my "Beach Hut" yep that lovely quiet place where I can go play with all my stash. Whoop whoop.

Today in between the gloss drying on the commission I made a birthday card for a colleagues friend and I took my inspiration from the Totally Papercrafts Sketch, which just jumped out off the page and said "I am fab..... use me"  

So before I go finish the Sunday Dinner which has very nicely been roasting along in the oven to itself beside the steamer which also steams the vegetables on its own, here is today's little something.

This is the sketch from Sketch Saturday

The challenges that it also fits so perfectly into

Totally Papercrafts - their sketch 
Daring Card Makers - An easel Card

Charisma Cardz -Girly Card with Flowers

The Pixie Cottage - Lots of Flowers

and reliably informed

Lots To Do Challenge - Faces

The card itself would help (I know I will get there eventually)
I used some lilac card, the purple (think it is called "Heather") Capsule Mono collection paper.  My new purchase from the Hobby House (see where I shop) my round the page double loop punch by MS.  Some glitter, pearls, a little purple charm, some ribbon (from stash) and my justrite stamps for the sentiment.  The inner sentiment is MSE. Large Flower from Hobby Craft and I am sorry cannot remember where the little flowers are from but the leaves are from Running with Scissors. I did leave the ribbon deliberately peeping out at the ends :)

The close up of the image from Sugar Nellie "Demure" I think.
and I think that is about it for now, although I have some new bits and bobs from the Hobby House yesterday, so need to go play. I also helped the step mother in law to spend a large amount of money there too :) it was nice spending someone else's money and it was on plastic too.

Don't forget my blog candy is running still see here 

Thank you for all your lovely recent comments, I do love reading them all, and I do apologise if I have not got around to visiting you all recently but will try do better this week

Hugs Kate xx
