There's a rocket in my pocket!

Have you every heard that poem?  I was in a kid's book I used to love as a child and I have never forgotten it (even though it is completely irrelevant to me since I am not American)...  It goes something like this...

There's a rocket in my pocket
I cannot stop to play
Away it goes
I've burn't my toes
It's Independence Day!

Anyway, that's how I feel at the moment... a little bit stressed, a little bit behind and like I just don't have time to thnk!  

So yesterday was Karber Digital day and I have a card, but I wanted to fix the photograph as I accidentally took it on the wrong resolution setting and it looked bad.

For today's card I decided to use Coffee Leslie.  I think Leslie is one of my favourite Karber characters.










































































The papers I used are from October Afternoon and Crate Paper and the journalling tag is from Maya Road.  The flower I crocheted.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and I inked the edges of the pic with Distress Inks in Walnut.  I added Glossy Accents to her glasses.  I do so love my Glossy Accents!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Kaboodle Doodles #85: Lots of Layers
Incy Wincy Designs #112: Distressing
Get Hippity with Ippity: Buttons, bows, or bling

Here's a close-up of Leslie:

























And these are the copics I used:





















Happy Tuesday!  I'm just about to get my make-up on and head off to the boss's house to cater for a dinner party they are having.

Ciao!
