First Kiss

Woohoo weekend at last. It's been a really busy week at work - we had the computer server upgraded a couple of weeks ago & since then it keeps going down (which is not good in a doctors surgery as we can't do anything when it does (issue prescriptions, make appointments, type... & the doctors can't see patients, in fact there is not a lot we can do without the computers lol). As you can imagine we've been getting a few moans & groans from the patients. But I can forget all about that for a couple of days. I had a nice start to the day, talking the grandchildren on the webcam, then we went shopping which wasn't so nice lol but was ok & this afternoon I managed to make a card!

This image is called The First Kiss & is from Karen's Doodles. I coloured the image in with Promarkers, a bit of chalk & Prismacolors (for the grass). The papers are from Designs by Krista & I distressed the edges with a stitch unpicker. The finishing touches were a butterfly, buttons, ribbons, thread & 2 tiny gems. I left the greeting off for now cos I'm not sure what I shall use this card for yet :-)
