Instant Human: Just Add Coffee!

I swear, I am in serious danger of ending up in casualty?
How do you get a decent photo in this dark, autumn light?

I have placed my card atop a jenga-style, tower of odd boxes and packages,
hung myself halfway out a 1st floor window,
and  balanced precariously on random pieces of furniture!!
All to no avail - I end up with a photo no better than the one I started with!
At least I have amused the dog!!

Just a quick and simple, girly card here. 
I used my new 'Latte' stamp, that I chose as part of a Quixotic Paperie prize.

I'd like to enter the following challenges - 
My Mum's Craft Shop - Remind You of a Song. I love these challenges. I like to see what songs people have chosen, they are so clever.
When I looked at my card the Billy Joel song, Uptown Girl, popped into my head!
Tuesday Throwdown - Think Pink
Crafter's Companion - Pink & Green to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mum is a breast cancer survivor, so this is a theme that's close to my heart.
Link Up For Pink - Thanks Yolie, for pointing me in the direction of your fab linky party - supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.

Stamp - Elisabeth Bell for SCACD 'Latte', coloured with Copics.
DP - First Edition Bird Song.
Happy Birthday Stamp Personal Impressions.
Martha Steart Border Punch. Ribbon and gems from my stash.

Right, I'm off to practice my photography skills - 
and if you here a CRASH,
that's me falling off the back of the sofa!! ;-)
