Time for a siesta

 Well hello everyone

This was a last minute make.  I was happily making a Halloween card after work yesterday, which I hope to finish today. I then I get a phone call from a colleague at work, who doesn't even work in my office. and asked me to make a 60th birthday card for a male colleague, who isn't even in either of our offices, and to get it to her by Saturday!!!!!! We are all in the mental health forum which we jointly help run for those of us who suffer Mental health in our goverment department. Anyhow I digress, I had no idea what I was going to make and when I did it took me 7 attempts to get it right!!!!! Time was running out and it took 4 hours to create it but at least it was done and dusted

For this I used Cardio stamp sets Bugs and insects, Summer serenity, Summer siesta, Rural retreat, 

Unknown brand leaf stencil

Elements inks Olive, Lime punch, Sahara. Della Blue and Graphite

Versafine clair Nocturne, Pincone and chianti

Blue versacolor

Black and grey pastel pencils

Black fineliner and sharpie

5x7 card blank

phewwwww all done

Thank you for visiting, really appreciate it
