I Don't do Cards!!!

So which part of 'I don't do Cards' did I not fully understand !!!!!!

There is a reason for this digression. Happy Birthday FLUFF.
I saw this stamp 'Retail Therapy' by Papermania and imediately thought Faye would appreciate this.
Now I don't own a single Promarker or Copics pen (I have seen your desks ladden with the little blighters in every tint and colour under the sun at a cost ) but what I have bought is a packet of 24 water colour pencils (by Docrafts for £8.99) and dug out an ancient bottle of baby oil (does baby oil go out of date? Well it smelt ok) and I was away. I stamped the image with Stazon (I do listen to what Faye tells me) and coloured in with the pens. A dab/dash of baby oil rubbed in and hey presto a not half bad attempt at a card. The flowers are some I made earlier in true Blue Peter Fashion. I added the sentiment 'Shop till you drop'.

Ever since Faye clapped eyes on the scarf that 'Sis' made me she has been trying to snaffle it off me. Not any more cos I have made Fluff her very own version. (Now I can pinch it back to wear)
Have a Happy day.

That's a cracker, Mrs A. Hope Faye has a good birthday, and that SweetCheeks lets her have a little retail therapy.

What do you mean "not a half bad attempt?"
