Girl holding small heart

Wow, it was a scorcher today. I went off to craft this morning and they had the overhead fans on and the flick of light they create gives me a headache and makes me feel a bit off, so I kept my head down and just got on with making that box up for the lady in my Wednesday class. I've decided she must have made the drawers using the wrong measurements but her card was fairly flimsy and when I pulled the drawers out it took too much card off and I had to start from scratch. Anyway, it's done and I think she will be happy to just decorate it now.
I also went to the shops this afternoon and tried on about 6 dresses. Two fit and it was hot work putting them on and off. I am sort of in between the smallest dresses in the bigger fittings and the largest or second largest dresses in the smaller fittings, so the ones I really liked the most were too small. I'm still working on it, I've lost about 26 - 27 kg now.
It is my future DIL's hen's night tomorrow and I've been invited out with them. I will probably go to the meal and see what they are up to after that! I'm not really a drinker so if they are going to pub crawl I will probably head home.
I also went off to the third concert in the park tonight with my friend, Fran. Still very warm but we got there early and set up in the shade. Latin music tonight.
Well here is the card I would like to share with you tonight.
The basecard is SU Real Red, a layer of white next and then a piece of SU Basic Black which I embossed with stipes. I used a Nestie to cut the Real Red and also the White diecut for this cute image. A freebie from Scrapper's Delights Papercrafts
I printed her onto the white card and coloured her with Copic Markers. The sentiment is from SU Petite Pairs and the one on the inside is a Penny Black Stamp called ...every day. I inked them both with SU Basic Black ink. I cut the front one with an oval punch and ran the edge around on a SU Real Red inkpad.
The inside has a black piece with a white nestie diecut with the sentiment stamped on it.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Scrapper's Delights Papercrafts challenge -Challenge (12th-25th) - LOVE

4 Crafty Chicks - #78 Inspiration Challenge. I used the red, black, white and the texture of the ceiling and the silver of the mirror.

Make It Monday #77 - Anything Goes

It was again good to "see" those of you who popped in and thanks so much for the lovely comments.
The scan is a bit blurry may try again in a minute to fix it. I scanned it again and this one is a bit better, still a bit blurry - the red gem is fairly big so the card won't sit flat.
Have a great weekend,
Take Care,
