Happy for You

A few weeks ago, I was going through a bucket of images that I have previously stamped off, looking for something that would inspire me to colour! I was particularly looking for an image for one of our young contractors at work.  She is taking time off work to travel to Australia for a year - and she is traveling alone.  I don't think I would be that brave to venture afar alone! Well, I came across this image that was already coloured (bonus).  I believe I coloured this a few years back and just never made it to a card.  Well, now that I was ahead of the game, I proceeded to finish the card.

The image is from Stamping Bella, I believe this has been discontinued.  All papers are from one of the MME paper packs.  I did some layering and some stitching.  I found a sentiment that worked perfectly for the occasion.

Added some ribbon and sequins to finish off.

Wishing everyone a great weekend! See you again real soon.

Oh, Pauline, what a feast for my eyes! I love this happy, happy gal, and you've colored it beautifully! What perfect DP you've used with a lovely layout! I really love how you've used the ribbon to match her hair! What a brave girl she is to go to Australia for a year alone! But she is going to love this card, and I do too! Hugs, and have a beautiful weekend! xoxo

OMG, it's perfect and so dang cute!! I certainly don't come across such already colored cuteness in my stash. It couldn't be a more happy card. Once you've got something like this made up you could think of a million reasons to use it. If I had it made up I'd send it to my friend after a day of shopping just to tell her how much I enjoyed our day. I tell you, I send lots of cards, but I hardly ever have spares in my stash. What fun to come across this! Your coloring always makes me smile!

Hi Pauline,

One lucky lady who receives this card. Really lovely.
Just out of interest - this is the exercise I do 20 times every morning!!!! not.

Much love,
