Happy Birthday Boss Lady

Evening guys!! Thank you for stopping by tonight.
I'ma make this a reaaaaaal quick one, as I'm a sleepy little sausage tonight.

It was my bosses birthday today, and because I know she truly appreciates and loves the cards I make, I thought I'd create something a little extra special for her.

My boss is always in her black UGG boots and I remember her telling me that she wanted a way to wear a hat in the colder weather without spending the rest of the day with hat hair.. (to which my answer was.. pretty much impossible) - so when I seen this image, I knew it'd be perfect for her birthday cad.

I coloured the image up using my ProMarkers - to which I am becoming more and more attached to with each passing day. I see many people heading over to the dark side (Copics) and I'm afraid they will never return!! Never fear, I will continue to fly the flag for the under dogs!! 

I used papers from an older Echo Park pack which I had been struggling to use, I wasn't really feeling the colours or patterns, but this time when I got it out - everything just seemed to fall together. 

Just a little FYI - you may be seeing more swirly kraft die cuts arranged underneath flowers and it's you, Donna Mosley, I have you to thank for that *hearts* - LOVE that woman's work!! I always spend waaaay longer than I actually have time for just staring at her work. I know I don't always leave a comment, but I hope she knows I appreciate what she does. :)

I think I'll wrap this up here and head back over to my bottle fo Jacques before bed time. I cannot wait for a decent enough hour to face plant that pillow of mine.

Peace. xo
