Sweet lottie

Happy Sunday everyone,

Well so much for me keeping up with my regular posting like I promised!! Shortly after my last post I came down with a terrible viral infection and proceeded to pass it onto my girls - all 3 of them, so it's been a horrible few weeks in my house.
I'm pleased to say we're all feeling better now and I've had the teeniest amount of time to make a quick(ish) card.
This card started off life as one single sheet "card companion" printed from my Humphrey's corner CD about a year ago.  
Now the idea of card companions is to make one entire card from the sheet without the need to use anything else..did that happen...NO!
I've since learned that no matter how hard I try I cannot do "CAS" or Quick and easy!

Any way, this little card is for a lovely friend of mine at work who is moving onto a new section and I wanted to let her know she will be missed (hello Jill if you are reading this).

I decided to go with quite bright colours for this card for a change, I used co-ordinations card in lovely bright yellow for the borders (MS punch) and corners (whimsy).
The DP is from another CDrom all printed yonks ago.
I decided to embellish with buttons and pearls for a change from flowers and the lovely ribbon was a freebie I think.
The little sentiment is craft work cards.

I have decorated the inside to compliment the front.

Finally a close up of the adorable Lottie dancing with her little friend.

I'm off now to make a start on Sunday lunch.

Thank you for any comments you may leave, they really do brighten my day.
