Back to reality

ish... I don't actually go back to work till Wednesday. Got back yesterday at tea time. It was a fairly horrible drive the whole way up - there was a lot of rain for most of the journey and I was feeling pretty rotten but we made it. Craig never even came into the house until his dinner was made - he went straight to his friends house!! It was nice to come back to a Sugar fix :D I'd indulged in the Carnival of Colour launch over at Funky Kits the weekend we went away on holiday and treated myself to stamps and there was also the gingham stamps I'd ordered from Waltzing Mouse waiting for me too. What more could a girl ask for! Anyway, got a wee chance to play today with one of my new stamps. Well, I inked them all up but this one has made it to a card. I had to stop to watch the Apprentice final!!! The image is Luv A Latte from Funky Kits, coloured with promarkers (and thanks to Debbi I bought a burnt orange and coral promarker and I've used these to colour the skin along with sunkissed pink and blush). The paper is my fave Stampin Up DSP - Elegant Soiree. I've made this for the Sugar Nellie Facebook group challenge.

Hugs.
