Midweek rush! (WOYWW)

I am in a real rush this week as I am somewhat behind with preparing my post for WOYWW.  My excuse is I have had a stinking cold all week, have a hacking cough and no voice which seems to have somewhat slowed me down in all ways for some reason.  I did manage to craft with Alex yesterday so he could make this card for his girlfriend though!
This is the state of my desk as it was yesterday (Tuesday) evening in the midst of making a new baby card for one of my oldest friends.  As you can see there are promarkers, flowers and distress inks everywhere and I have to confess it doesn't look much better now. Notable by its absence is my large mug of tea...for some reason I forgot to get a top up - I must be ill!  The situation is rectified as I type this though...there is a large mug sat near me (but not too near the laptop in case of accidents!).
Here is the finished card which followed the sketch from CCCB, and used an image from Stitchy Bear digital stamps which I coloured with promarkers. I cut the central panel with a nestie and distressed round the edge with teabag and worn lipstick distress inks (I did the same round the edge of the card).  I am entering this card into SSSS 'anything goes', Pollycraft 'pink, white, cream and red', DYSU 'use a flower', Delightful challenges 'distressing', Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 'alphabet challenge ' (D: distressing, doily and die) and OLL 'ribbon'.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
Love,
Caro
