How Adorable is this image!!

Hello my Lovelies,  Wow have I struggled to post today !!! why!!! well it's my Birthday and we had planned to have a wee tea party for my sweet Grandchildren after school today but !!!! this morning my Daughter phoned to say the twins were not at school as they had been up most of the night with the dreaded runs and sickness.  So out the window go my plans!!.   I went on to do the "normal" things such as housework!! making breakfast etc,  I was feeling very low around mid morning.  So my dear Hubby decided I needed to take my mind off the wee ones and took me out for a lovely long lunch, which was wonderful.  Then we went shopping and I bought some new bedding (we were going to re-decorate in a few months anyway)  oh it's gorgeous, I plumped for Jade Green, Ivory and duck egg blue.  So I'm looking forward to choosing the wallpaper and curtains to match.

Oh I'm going on too much aren't I,  anyway to cut a long story short when we got back I was made (forcibly) to sit and choose some new crafting stash - Say no more, I can't wait for the Postie to deliver my new Sugar Nellie and Tilda stamps.   In saying that I bought this beautiful download from Funky Kits.  She is one of the new Simply Adorable images called Joy Sitting from Sugar Nellie and what a joy she was to colour,. She is shaded in all the right places to make colouring a total dream.

I've made this card for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl,  this fortnight it was Kiki's turn to pick the theme and she chose Birthdays and she also produced the wonderful sketch,

Hopefully my dear Daughter and Grandson's will come visit me as soon as they are well enough, which I hope won't be too long.

Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you are having a lovely evening.

Hugs to you all   Suzi xox

Absolutely sensational card, Suzi! She is absolutely precious and looks like she was a breeze to color - great work by the artist! Your card is wonderful - love the girly shabby feel to it! Sorry to hear the birthday party was a bust, but it seems like everything turned out well in the end. Happy Birthday and many happy returns!
