Another forgotten birthday!!!

Another card I can hear you say, another forgotten birthday more like!! I hate this time of year, the birthdays start at the end of October and go right through to January!! Being a right misery now aren't I!!! Sorry, stressful week hence the number of cards!! Conservatory update - we are up to damp course level, slow but sure but the weather has been atrocious and I have been told that you can't build in the rain so there is just no hope!!! I'm really convinced now that completion date is next Christmas, am so glad that I didn't agree to the storage in the living room!! Well on to todays card, this one is for the Copic Colour Challenge and I have used the sketch from the Sophisticat Challenge

This is one of my new stamps, I have always loved her and have now treated myself.
Sugar Nellie Elizabeth Bells Daisy, she is an absolute joy to colour.
I have used Copic pens as follows:
E00, E11, E21, E31 and E50
YR0000, YR00, YR02 and YR04
YG00, YG03, YG06 and YG11
Y21 and Y28
RV21 and RV23
C-1 and R20
Spica Clear Glitter Pen
Swirl Cuttlebug folder
Martha Stewart Border Punch and leaf punch
Nesties Labels Two (I think)
Not sure of the sentiments that I have used, sorry
Don't know what the paper is, sorry again
The flowers are made out of punches that are sets that emboss too ,but I have thrown the packaging away, sorry again but I got them from Wendy at Stamps and Memories!!
Gems, cards and brads from stash.

Hope you like her, she is my favourite stamp ever!!!

Hugs Jo x

I have now taken another photo in the daylight not perfect as I had to nearly stand on my head to do it, trying to get the light from the kitchen window!!! Excuse the stuff behind it on the worktop. Still when I get my new conservatory ...................................
