A day to Relax!!!

Good morning to you my lovely blog chums, I hope that wherever you are, you are keeping warm and safe this weekend. After a couple of light dustings, during the week, I thought we had got away with not having any significant snow in my part of Kent.....however, from late afternoon yesterday and throughout the evening it came down. Fortunately it doesn't appear to be to any great depth, but enough to cause disruption and difficulties getting out and, I think it might be a weekend of hibernation for me. I have some wedding invitation samples to work on, and also a clay face mask, that I treated myself to in the Boots sale, that needs trying out!!

I have set myself a challenge this year, to reacquaint myself with some of the amazing digi stamps that I have acquired over the years, you forget how many you have stashed away in folders on the laptop.....already my trawls through have been met with squeals of delight. This week I have been looking through my "Pink Petticoat" folder,  as a particular image had come to mind when I was thinking about another blog challenge. The current theme at Passion for ProMarkers is, Inspired by the movies, and I recently watched "Pretty Woman"  for the first time in years, and this digi in particular, put me in mind of the scene when Julia Roberts is in the bath, negotiating her "fee" with Richard Gere.....So that's how this card came about, lol

  • Pink Petticoat Lola Rose image
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Dotty card from Limetree
  • Dienamics mini scallop border die
  • ribbon and card candi from stash
I would like to enter these challenges:
as you like it - favourite shape/fold - I favour a 6x6 square card, I like the  symmetry and even-ness of a square card

Have a great day, whatever you get up to!
