Special Delivery

Pretty sure I've got myself a gardening job,I went there yesterday,it's a big Victorian house and about 2.5 acres of land,with streams and a large pond. There is a lot of work to be done but I like a challenge. The lady of the house is very nice,quite young with 2 small children and a Lancashire lass like me. I feel quite excited at the prospect,much better than working in a boring shop and hours to suit me.
I'm feeling a lot better,tummy and back wise though not 100%,the new tablets and a rest have helped. Tests on Monday.
My card features a new stamp called special delivery (you get the sentiment to) from Lili of the valley. I've coloured with copics.
The gingham paper is wildrose studios and the yellow check we r memory keepers .
The star bottons (just love em ) where bought at Happy stampers craft fair , £1 per bag, wish I'd bought more now!
The blue ruffles ,from the ribbon box are as rare as hens teeth ,so I'll be eeking out these pretties.

challenges entered:

Hope the gardening job works out for you and it's not too much for you. That's a hell of a big garden - will you have to cut the grass too?
Super card - love a bit of gingham and that's a nice tiny one. The ruffled ribbon is gorgeous and the image is lovely - beautifully coloured.

This is a lovely card - I have this stamp too and use it a LOT! I like the idea of colouring the scale to match the baby too, so will be "borrowing" that ;)
