Pretty in Pink!

Morning all...well winter has arrived big time here in Hertfordshire...we experienced thick fog all day yesterday which made driving an absolute nightmare! I'm probably going to make myself unpopular but I do love the cold weather...its perfect for snuggling up indoors with a thick fleece blanket and sipping hot choccy with fluffy marshmallows on top...yum yum!

My friend asked me to make this birthday card for her sister...I couldn't resist using my all time fav digi image...Coco from the Digi Stamp Boutique...gotta love Coco...he's gorge! I thoroughly enjoyed colouring him in and ayone who knows me well...knows that colouring I do not enjoy...not unless its in one of Sophie's colouring books anyway lol!

Donna, this is gorgeous - love the papers and the ribbon - wow, that really is nice - the double layers work wonders with that great texture on the first layer. The little brads are so cute and I love the way you colored Coco. You don't like coloring? Well, honey chile, you sure do an outstanding job because your images always look magnificent! Oh, look how cute the pearls around the ribbon on the sentiment - very clever, Donna!
