Dressed to the Nines

Well, hope everyone has had a good day, it's late here and it's another cold night. I still have my daughter's two dogs as well as our two - she said she might be late coming to get them, but I think maybe they will be staying the night. If only they wouldn't eat their bed! My laundry looks like it has had a fall of snow because they chew a hole and pull out the stuffing!!! YEAH, she's just arrived, so hopefully there will be no bed eating!
Anyway, I got stamps in the mail today, a set called "Party Girls" by Creative Expressions, another E-bay find!
Hope you like this one Shirley as this is the set I got for you.
I've stamped her on a light apricot/peach colour and coloured her in two different browns. I added the backing paper and a fancy die cut and the sentiment from SU on a piece punched with the wide oval, I used white so I've sponged with Close to Cocoa to blend in, I also thought it was a bit bare in the LH corner, I tried pearls, then a flower but didn't look right so opted for a birthday greeting, Not sure if it is quite right but it is done now!
Well thanks to all of you that left wonderful comments for me on my last post, was the most comments I've had to date, they are much appreciated,
So keep well and will be back to post tomorrow night, I'm entering this one into the Make It Monday Linky Party
