Lovely Cuppa Tea!!

Hi Everyone,
Well what a week at work that was!! Not a good week at all sadly with numerous redundancies and uncertainty over our future. Although I have been told my job is safe, not sure for how long though! So much stress and upset but I guess what will be will be and we'll find out in time. Maybe time to polish up the CV though...
Something that has put a smile on my face and let me drift away from all the negativity is my card, thanks goodness for crafting, lol!! That's why I love it so much, it's such a good stress reliever for me and really helps to calm the mind. This one I've made for my sort of cousin (!), let me explain! Louise is my cousin Deby's cousin on the other side of the family, does that make sense, ha ha ha probably not!! Anyway, Lou and I are really good friends, she's always there when I need her and we have such fun together! Daemo and Paul (Hubby and Lou's Hubby) are also best of friends too so we love spending time with them. We're going over to see them tonight for a curry and good chin wag, can't wait! So this is the birthday card I've made her as it's her birthday next week. What do you think?...

Lou does love a cup of tea, hope she loves her card!!
The backing papers are Doodlebug's Pink Lemonade and Cupcake Dot, and Wild Rose Studios Candy Floss Paper Stack layered onto Core d'inations Sugar N Spice card, the gems are Papermania, the flowers are Prima E-Line with Wild Rose Studios polka dot brads, the sentiment is Craftwork Cards and I've used my MS Doily Lace punch and Woodware Corner Punch and added Glamour Dust for extra bling!
I'm going to enter this card into two challenges this week:
Better go and get ready for our night out now so catch you later chicks!
