Sarah Kay Vintage card and catch-up

It's been a while....again, but have found time to post a blog at last.  Still getting over a busy but fab weekend.  Went out Friday night to see a friend's brother in a Madness tribute band as they were playing at the OWMC just round the corner. Despite promising to one another that we wouldn't drink too much we were both hammered!  (£1.50 for a Bacardi and coke is practically giving it away don't you think???!)  Worst thing was, had to get up on Saturday morning for a day's craft shopping at the ICHF show at the NEC!  Shouldn't really have driven the way I felt but started to feel better about lunch time when the serious spending started.  Had a really good day with my crafting buddy L and bought lots of  lovely goodies.

Spent last night making this card for one of the nursey staff at YD's nursery who left today :(

She's been there for both of my girls and is a very special person.  Am so sad she's leaving and won't be there' til YD goes to school, but on the positive side we'll now be able to be 'friends' rather than parent/employee.
The image is a Sarah Kay design which I just looooove; the detail is amazing!  Coloured it with distress ink and a watercolour brush and love the effect.  Also used a new Magnolia stamp for the background - it's called Valentine letter- and a new Tim Holtz texture fades embossing folder, you like?!

Have fun playing with all those new craft show goodies!! :)

P.S. I did try to leave a comment a while ago to say thanks for the mention a few posts back but seems like it didn't post- blogger being awkward again, I guess :S I love the card you made, though, and it looks so pretty in pastel shades- think I'll have to have another go sometime!! :)
