Pretty in Pink

I've tried to keep today's post short as lots to do and I'm also working tomorrow so between housework and ironing I blogging too...multi tasking at its best!I have several cards that I've not had the time to post yet, not helped by my slow typing and even worse spelling !..everything takes me forever and then I need to correct all the mistakes I make...I could go on but you get the general picture and dont need or want to know about my my poor typing skills!.. My daughter is now all unpacked and settling in and its lovely having her back not sure hubby feels the same yet! ...I'm sure we will get there.This card was made using the free Annabelle Wild Rose Studio Stamp that came with a magazine,I really enjoyed colouring it... isn't she sweet; I went for a multi layered look and there is a lot of die cuts..,. I  haven't held back !... hope you like the finished result as much as I do.
