Happy Birthday Kerri

Today is Kerri's 39th birthday, I've known Kerri a long time - 27 years to be exact, she was also my bridesmaid 13 years ago. Happily, our friendship lasted a lot longer than my marriage :)
Kerri is also the lovely lady I made the Home Sweet Home gift for that I showed off the other day.
Anyway, because she was at Rockness the other week, this image reminded me of hippies and festivals and so I thought it would be quite cool for her birthday card.
And what a stroke of luck that Letraset sent me their ultra-fine nibs just in time for me to colour this image properly! Scroll down to the day-before-yesterday's post to see the ultra-fine nibs review.

Image: Boho Chic from Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers and cut out with Labels 10 nesties
the brown base card is from The Papeterie, the larger cogs are cut with Donna Salazar Sprightly Sprockets from Spellbinders and the smaller ones are laser cut chipboard from Make it Crafty. the greeting is PI stamped onto the waste from a Bigz XL ornate box die, the clocks paper is from my stash and the black pearls are Prima e line.

I'd like to enter her into
The Sugar Bowl - sketch
 Promarkers  - anything goes
Passion for Promarkers - park life (clearly she's walking in the park)
Papertake Weekly - Here comes the sun
Stamptacular Sunday - Fun in the Sun

The browns & kraft work so beautifully with the green of the grass & your blue spotted background. The various sizes of brads pick up the circular holes in that cog under the image plus her eyes & your dotty background too. There's so much in this. My Cuttlebug died last week so keep noticing Sizzix items with view to saving for a replacement.Trying to work on a Copics & ProMarker equivalents chart as my Blending sets arrived last week but migraine control has broken down so finding myself out of action more than I like.
Hope you catch up with yourself -sounds as if you have your hands full at present.
