Dipping in to my reserves and oh my what a palava....

Good morning from a bleary eyed me :D
First off i need to apologise for not visiting anyones blogs yesterday or for answering any emails but me and my poor mum each ended up working a 13 hour day yesterday.
To cut a long story short, new card reading machines were meant to be installed and an half hour job turned into a 7 hour job as one of our tills decided to die.
So we ended up staying late as our shop order had to go through by last night :(, soooooooooooo i`m back in this morning for an hour or so but i`m getting tonight off as i have a lot of overtime next week :S
Todays card is therefore one of the ones i made a few weeks ago for an order and kept as backups, good job eh :D
So no challenges but just something for you to look
As you can see i made this using one of the fabulous Hobbyhouse toppers.
I have also used;
White card
WRS papers
Dovcraft ribbon
Dovecraft sentiment stamp 
Distress tool
Red Pearls

a clse up of the sweet image.

and a sideways vew.
Thanks so much for popping by, its means a lot :D
I hope to catch up with some blogging later.
Hugs Nic.xx
