Commision card and going away for a little while

Hi All
This will be a quick post tonight as I am busy busy busy with things in the house and I still have commission cards to finish.  We have decided to go to Cyprus for a week’s break and we leave on Thursday, I know short notice but looking forward to it and the tickets were booked yesterday,  it’s not that I am eager but I do have my suitcase out ready lol.

Brian could do with the rest and we are lucky enough to own a villa there and it's only a 2 1/2 hour flight to get there so Thursday night I will be sat in a tavern having eats and drinks yummy.

Now onto my card which is a commission for a friend, she rang me this morning to see if she could pick it up tomorrow then I remembered I had not even finished it aggggg so much on my mind recently.

I have used a Whiff of Joy Image and coloured it with Copic, for a change I used Lasting Impression paper  and I manage to get the last four pieces of this in the craft shop and have being hanging on to it as I love it.

I inked all the edges with Antique Linen distressing ink, the little butterflies are buttons I got in the UK last year, the bling is Kaban , the flowers W/O and the ribbon is from my stash which I tied in a bow and stuck a button on the top. Sorry it's not a good pic but my daylight bulb has just gone.

I have entered the following challenge

Whiff Of Joy – Bows and Buttons

Die Cut Dreams -  Pink Green Coffee

Cup Cake Craft – Sketch

I shall be holding my little candy with a twist on Wednesday so do pop round to see me as you could win a voucher, more of that on Wednesday.

I shall be round to see you all later after I have got a few things done, I did come round last night to see your creations but on some sites blogger would not let me post, blogger is so fickle sometimes and it drives me nuts lol.

Thanks for popping by to see me I do appreciate it.
