Girls about town

Im loving the new Girls about town downloads from charmed crafts as mentioned in my earlier post, The card above is one of the images as is the sentiment, ive just changed the format of it in word. ive done this for the inspire me challenge over on dotties world
I decided to take the spot pattern as inspiration.
The image is coloured with promarkers, the papers are My Minds Eye which i just received today from Sarahs cards they were a bargain in their sale at only 20p per sheet, they are double sided card stock weight, i only wish i had ordered more.. I didnt have any ribbon to match so i took a piece of organza fabric that i had, and ruched it up and added 2 buttons in the centre. ive also added lace, rhinestones and a charm.
Im feeling really tired this week as Dylan who i look after during the day is not too well so he's very clingy and whingey (bless him) so it is very draining and tiring so i have been getting a few early nights ready to cope with him the next day. You forget how demanding a 10 month old can be. Still when he is his usual self he is the most cutest gorgeous pleasant little boy so that outweighs the bad times.
