Thank Goodness its Friday!

Hello there and thank you for popping in for a visit today.......well I for one am very happy that its Friday afternoon! I have one more week at work and then two weeks off.....woohoo, I am so ready for a break!
Not too much planned for the weekend yet, other than shopping, catching up on the housework and hopefully a bit of crafting time.
Todays card had been a work in progress for a few weeks now, as this gorgeous Tilda image fell out of one of my birthday cards and I couldn't wait to colour it.....and then it sat in a box for weeks, then I had the idea of this frame, so I sat with a great deal of concentration one afternoon and glued these wee little ribbon flower thingys onto a die cut frame. It wasn't until last Saturday that I actually got around to putting it all together!
 Tilda is coloured with the promarkers, with a touch of white sakura gel pen to highlight the rolling pin. The Yellow papers is from Dovecraft Garden Party, which I picked up for just £3 in wilkos and all of the papers are delish - really bright and pretty! The other paper is an oldie from my stash. The gorgeous border die is from Cheery Lynn. The ribbon flowers came in a bag of bits and bobs that my Mum gave to me as she wasn't keen on them and they are glued on to a Nellie Snellen doily frame. The sentiment is one of the lovely Netty's freebies. The ribbon, pearls and slider are from the stash.
