The one that was made specially for a crafty buddy!

Hi all, hope you're all having a good day. If im honest today has been a bit pants! Cameron is off on a school geography trip to Chedder Gorge, I had to take him to school at 6.15am and it was cold, wet and miserable! When I got to work and found out that our company auditor was in do to his 6mnthly audit, it was clear that the day wasnt gonna get any better. I was hoping to get away half an hour earlier to make up for some overtime I did earlier in the week, but thanks to some "missing" invoices I ended up leaving an hour later.  Left work with a thumping head, so took Nippy for a run in the park for some fresh air, only to get caught in the rain again!!! Apologies for my moaning, I know, I know worse things happen at sea (as my granny used to say)
So, onto todays card and this is a birthday card I've made for a lovely Docraft and blog friend Carol, who as you can see is celebrating a bit of a spesh birthday.
This super cute H&S image is coloured with the pro's, I think the papers are from The Paper Cellar, the Ivy die is from Poppy Stamps, doily from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, the pearls and the ribbon slider are from Meiflower (at bluewater show) and the sentiment tickets are my own work. The l/o was based on

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
seems a little sketchy #23
happy campers - pink & brown
crafts and me - my sentiments exactly
the sisterhood of crafters - happy birthday
crafty sentiments - happy birthday
a gem of a challenge - for the girls
So, thats about all from me for now, but as I've got a busy day ahead tomorrow and dont think im going to get on here at all, I would just like to wish you all and happy and creative.......
