Bug and Roo - Marcie (no... I'm not swearing!! hehe)

Hi best blogging buddies

Well just a quickie from me tonight as I'm poorly sick, as someone (no names mentioned but she blames her hubbie), gave me a cough/cold last weekend at the Harrogate show.... and I can't shake it!  Nor can I sleep....  which wasn't helped by my OH being called out by work at 2.45 a.m. as one of the alarms had been set off!  When he arrived back, I just de-camped to the settee and watched Desperate Housewives till the sun came up...

It/s another little mini circular one from me again... I just love doing these...  and the image is from Lori Boyd Designs - she's called Bug and Roo - Marcie - and isn't she just soooo cute??

The rest of the card is self explanatory I think... apart from the dotty paper and the sentiment which are both from Pink Petticoat.  The paper is actually a more minky colour than it looks on here... nice with the pink.  The little flowers are punched with a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch..  and I've put Pearl Makers in the centre of each.  There is a bit of daisy trimmiong from my stash... and yes....  there's glitter on this little lady.....  there just had to be or it wouldn't have been me colouring her, now would it?  Don't think it did my cough any good tho!

I thought I'd show you the back of this one too...  I normally just print this logo on all my cards, as I sell quite a few.. but I can't print on the circular ones obviously.  I just thought this was the best solution..

By the way, I still haven't unpacked my Harrogate stuff..... so will make sure I 'show and tell' on my next post as long as my other half isn't looking!!  Ok, I'm off to take some Lemsip (other cold remedies are, of course, available.....LOL!)  Uh oh, it's getting to my head now!! hehe

Big hugs to all and thank you for your lovely comments... hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Gorgeous card Christine..I particularly love round cards, and the colours are so pretty.

Oh Dear! I am soooo very sorry to hear that some nasty bugger tried to give you their cold *cough, cough* didn't work completely as we're still coughing and spluttering here!
