Quick Gillian

Hello all, today is a quick post of a quick card I made a couple of days ago. In fact it doesn't come much quicker than this as this cute little digi stamp 'Gillian' was coloured in when she arrived at my computer! The fabulous 'Prairie Fairy' sent her over in all different formats and all I had to do here was colour her shoes and socks in!
I needed a card really quickly as I just found out one of my 8 sister in laws has just gained a 2:1 proving you can teach an old dog new tricks as Vicky turned 50 last year!
Inspired by the fabulous Pinky, who makes the best (and most) personalised cards in blog land I decided to add Vicky's name.
The lush paper is Kaiser Craft and the tassel has been kicking around my craft room forever! The flowers are WOC and I gave her a lovely pair of sparkly diamond earrings! lol

Hope your having a glorious weekend, it's meant to be scorching hot today which means I should be manically busy!!!

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
