Let's Celebrate

Another day has flown past. A mild summer's day here in Adelaide. I went off to teach class today and we were supposed to be finishing the secret boxes we started last week. The lady that didn't finish cutting and measuring last Wednesday actually sat for most of the class and right at the end after putting the box together and sticking the little drawers in she tried to close it and it just was impossible. I am not sure what she did. Maybe cut the box short or made the drawers too big. She is fairly stressed at the moment - her hubby has health problems and has all of a sudden put their house on the market and she is having to sell furniture and get rid of things and at this stage they haven't even planned where they will end up. Poor thing didn't really get a choice about the whole issue. So I have brought her box home and I think I will have to start from scratch for her and then she can just decorate the outside of it.
Did a little bit of grocery shopping today and then had a quiet evening home. I've sorted out another of my boxes and I can actually see the end of the lounge and more of the floor space. The recycling bin is getting fuller and luckily it doesn't get picked up till Monday morning so still gives me a few more days to go through things.
Well here is my card to share tonight.
The basecard is SU Early Espresso and then a layer of SU Pink Pirouette - another layer of the brown and then SU Whisper White. I stamped the image from Fizzy Moon called "Let's Celebrate" with SU Close to Cocoa ink and then coloured with Copic Markers using a new technique colouring the bottle that involves picking up ink with the blender pen. I stamped the little hearts in the pink squares with SU Real Red and the sentiment in Close to Cocoa and then trimmed around it and mounted it with foam dots. I added little dots on the pink card as well as a few around the image.
The inside is Pink Pirouette and I stamped hearts along the edge and then onto pink card and made a few of them 3D.
