Sometimes a gal just needs a drink!

Morning everyone :)
Another miserable looking day today and I've woken up feeling all bunged up- lovely! Dontcha just love having to go out in public with the snots?

I made another card last night- I had a little chat with myself and said if I'm gonna spend money on my hobby I need to actually make things with the product I buy as opposed to just letting it all sit in the corner of my bedroom! I can't promise that I will post new cards every day but I am certainly gonna try and take part in more challenges from hereonin.

Anyway, onto the card I made
This lady is me on an almost daily basis LMAO. Seriously though- what mother doesn't feel like that on occasion? My little boy is 4 and much as I adore him he drives me crackers sometimes and I really do feel like turning to drink!

The image is from Mo Manning and its called 'Lizzy in a tizzy'- can you tell I just LOVE her images? She does both the cute and the humorous just perfectly- I am slowly collecting her images LOL.
Backing paper was a MME stack that came free with a magazine (see I'm soooo good finally using my freebies!) and the backing card is Core'dinations. I colored Lizzy with Speccies, cut the borders with my Borderabilities (first time I've used them and I'm now converted) and used some pink gems to finish it off- I don't know why the gems look skew whiff cos they don't look like that in real life???

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:

Bronte & Bella's Challenge- Anything goes as long as you use a Mo Manning image
Creative Card Crew - The theme is humor
Stamp With Fun - Use pink & green

Need to brave myself to go outside into the miserable weather- maybe I should have a vodka to prepare myself???? (Kidding- wayyyyyy too early for me!)

See ya peeps :)
