Geekin' It (and a January Sale)

Today's card is another one made with someone special in mind, although to be honest it's probably more my style than hers, and I'm not entirely sure she likes pink as much as I do.  Whoops!

The theme is a bit book-worm-ish, although they're meant to relate to the recipient's job (she's an accountant) rather than paperbacks.  I was trying really hard to get the colouring right, and was doing ok until I got to her boots, where I seem to have changed the light source from the front, to then coming from both the left and right at the same time.  Shhh, don't tell anyone and I'm sure they won't notice!

The stamp was a gift from my lovely friend Samantha, but I know she won't like that I've tarnished it with all this pink!  ;0)  Thank you Samantha, she's lovely.

Also don't forget there's still a massive SALE at the Stamp Basket.  Lots of new discounts have been applied yesterday, so pop over there to stock up while the prices are slashed.  It'll keep your craft stash topped up so you can keep busy in the dark and dingy months!  :0)
