Busy doing nothing....I wish!

Hello there and thank you for stopping by, hope your week is going well so far. So my plan to do a lot more blogging this year isn't going quite as well as planned.....I was fine last week when my hubby was away in Scotland but since he came home, he has been under my feet, so things have gone to pot a bit....but I will try!
I do have a card to share with you anyway. So a few days ago I was doing some colouring and in the background was playing an Olly Murs song about being busy doing nothing, and I kind of thought it suited this image and from that thought, this sentiment evolved! 
The stamp is a proper oldie from Art Impressions (had it for ages, so I thought it deserved a run out!), have coloured this with the promarkers. The DP is a Zoe Pearn freebie and I changed the colour tone, using serif page plus. The gorgeous die cut is Fairytale Flower border from memory box, with a little addition of liquid pearls. This was cut from a gorgeous ivory pearlescent card from Payper box which matched the card candi really well. The sentiment is my own creation!

I would like to enter this into these challenges:
aud sentiments - any sentiment
moving along with the times - girly cards
word art wednesday - anything goes (must be uplifting)
crafty sentiments - anything goes

So glad that its Friday tomorrow.....will catch up with you all over the weekend xx
