Rosie by Digistamp Boutique

Hello again!
It's so easy to neglect your blog when life gets busy, isn't it?
My poor wee daughter is only back to school two weeks and is off sick already.
She had a miserable night on Wednesday so I kept her off school on Thursday and Friday as she really wasn't fit to go.
At the beginning of the week she was invited to go to her wee friend's birthday party, which was today and she was adamant that she was going.
'But you're not fit', I said.
'Oh I am mummy', was the reply. 'I'm as fit as a fillet!'
Needless to say, she got going to the party with a pocket full of tissues, and had a whale of a time.
So it's back to school on Monday!
Here's the card I made for her wee friend Rosie.
I know this card is pink, pink, pink!
But I deny all responsiblity for it, lol....Phoebe chose everything and I just coloured the image.
I have no idea what make the papers are, I bought them years ago from Poundstretcher when they used to do scrapbooking kits.
She wanted Rosie from Digistamp Boutique and she wanted her to have blond hair to match her friend :)

 The little crown is a brad from Making Memories and Phoebe has been begging to use it every time we craft, so you can imagine her delight when we were able to put it on Rosie's head!

The number '6' is cut with a Cuttlebug die 'Red tag sale' and I raised it on foam pads. The name 'Rosie' is stamped with Regal Rose SU ink using Elzybells alphabet stamps.
The ribbon is Dovecraft.

That's it for tonight!
I'm off to bed with a hot toddy (Lemsip, honey & whisky)...I think I've caught Phoebe's bug :(

I hope you're all having a relaxing weekend
and thank you for joining me here.
I'm so sorry I haven't got caught up with commenting yet but there just aren't enough hours in the day to fit everything in...
I will catch up with you soon though :)

Take care,
Sarah xx

Oh what a good Mom you are! I had the best time admiring this. Your daughter has exquisite taste in picking out coordinating elements and the image you've colored is gorgoeus. I'm certain her friend was very pleased!
Love that little crown and birthday bow. :)
