You're too Cute

Hi again, a lovely day here in Adelaide, a bit cool to start with but warmed up nicely. Did a bit of phone chasing today re paperwork to sort out some of the issues that have come up because of Adrian's accident. Have to get details of his injuries and recovery prognosis but the hospital doesn't work very fast and it could take 2 weeks so that means organising insurance payments that cover his wages won't happen yet either, need the medical details for that!
Laurie has just rung from Cambodia and things aren't going very smoothly with the bikes they bought, everyone is having to fork out money for repairs. He had fuel problems and found that there was salt in his fuel tank. Also the foot peg broke and he had to have that fixed. The guy that organised the trip has just had a piston break and will have to rebuild the engine. They may find themselves not doing that much touring if they are stuck waiting for repairs!!
I've managed to find a bit more time tonight and have my card finished and ready to share.
The basecard is SU Peach Parfait card and I've used left over bits and pieces on the rest of it. A piece of brown cardstock and I used a border punch on two edges. A scrap of orange and white striped DP. I cut 2 shapes using a Nestie circle die and a Nellie Snellen die out of scrap pieces of card and I had a small piece of this spotty DP and I cut a large circle out of it. The image was stamped onto white card with SU Basic Grey ink and coloured with Copic Markers. The little girl and sentiment are from My Favourite Things and is called "Enjoy Every Moment". I stamped the sentiment onto white card with SU Rose Pink ink and then cut it into separate words and mounted onto scraps of the Peach Parfait and then the brown. To finish off I added a tiny little clear bling on the heart of the little girl's dress.
