I've had a fab day today. Most of it was spent in the Trafford Centre (Tim would argue that this is NOT the best way to spend a day), we met up with our friends Ruth & Adrian and met their gorgeous new daughter Florence. After that we did a bit of Christmas shopping, then had a late lunch - with no pudding! I then went and spoiled that by making cupcakes when we got home, as I'm off to a work friends house for lunch tomorrow. This is her first week of maternity leave so a few of us are descending on her to keep her company for a bit! She doesn't like chocolate (mad, I know) so I've made very scrummy (we obv tested them to be sure) strawberry jam cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing - yum!

Here is my card to celebrate Florence's arrival...
I'm entering it into the Totally Gorjuss and Sketch Saturday challenges.
The challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is to use any cute girly type image (but if you use a Gorjuss girl you get a double entry).
And the sketch at Sketch Saturday this week is:
I've rotated it, and as the sentiment is part of the image, I've left that part out. The leaves on my flower are another flower with some of the petals cut off, though you can't see it too well in these pics.

Supplies used: Image - Pink Petticoat "
Sweet Cheeks", coloured with ProMarkers (Satin, Plum, Aubergine, Lavender, Lilac, Carnation Pink) and glittered with shimmer chalks and Diamond Stickles, Papers - Pink Petticoat, Flowers - Prima (glittered with Diamond Stickles), Dew Drops, Ribbon from stash.
