Travel Light...

Morning all, well its been a busy few days for the boys, they have at last managed to strip the hall and landing and we have the plasterer in today to hopefully get the small room done!

Here are some photos of the small room before we started.  The room was a very pale pink, we have stripped the walls and found the gorgeous floorboards! And some other bits that made me giggle, I love the pull cord above the bed! 


Its getting there, I would hope to have some photos next week of the room nearly finished! even if it is just dried plaster and the switches in the room! I cat wait to get the first room done, especially as it may well be the craft room! Onto the card.... Well while going through the computer yesterday I found a digi of suitcases that i had, it then reminded me of this lovely Sugar Nellie stamp I have, called Travel Lite, I think she is beautiful, if only my hair would look like that! 


I made this card with the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge in mind, the theme this week is pink and grey, The problem I had is that I don't have pink pencils, so I had to improvise and mix up my own pink! I used my cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss half the card, just to add something different, I then added the pink poker-dot ribbon that was in my stash.  I did use my sponges and my Tim Holtz Spun Sugar ink pad to distress half the card! 


Here is is up close.  I coloured her using my pencils all except the skin, I used my normal combination of copics of E02, E00, E000 and R20 for her cheeks.  I added some liquid pearls to her dress but I'm not sure that I like them now! 


The sentiment was printed from my computer.  I have my cousin coming up to see me soon and I can't wait, Im going to send this card to her with all my details in, just so she knows where she is coming! 


Well there you have it! I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Charisma Cardz - Pretty in Pink
Hanna and Friends - Pink and Grey

I hope you like her and if you have time I would love to read what you think! Thanks for taking the time to stop by!
