Teddy Bea

Hello, hope you are all well and enjoying the weather, sunny again, it's got to rain at some point hasn't it but for now I'm not complaining.  I have another card for you today, I made this one yesterday for my mum in law and thought I would share it.  I have used a Teddy Bea image, I love these images and they are a delight to colour and are all so sweet.  I have finished it off with lots of yummy flowers and the inside was decorated too.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Crafty Catz Challenge #93 - Christmas In July - DT

Hello!  Hope everyone has had a lovely Friday, the weather has been great again today and is looking good for the weekend so all is well.  Today saw the start of another new challenge at Crafty Catz and this week it was my turn to choose the theme so I have gone for ' Christmas '.  I am always last minute with my Christmas cards so I thought this would be the perfect chance to get a head start and get in the mood, although I have to admit it was very strange making this card when it was glorious sunshine outside and the kids were running around the garden chasing bubbles and eating ice-cream lol!  The lovely images on all the DT cards this week were kindly supplied by our sponsor, The Stamping Boutique and I hope you can join us and I look forward to seeing all your creations and maybe getting some inspiration from them to continue with my Christmas cards.

Crafty Catz Challenge #92 - No Pink or Blue - DT

Good morning, hope you are all having a good weekend, it is actually sunny here today so fingers crossed things are looking up weather wise, the school hols started this week and I could do with Mr Sunshine showing his face.  This week's challenge over at Crafty Catz has been set by the lovely Aunty Sue and she wants to see cards with no blue or pink on.  Now I looked at this challenge when she first set it and thought what on earth would I do and when I came to start my card all my pink papers and promarkers were calling to me but I was strong and resisted and I am so glad with the outcome so much so I am going to buy some papers that aren't pink for once lol!  The image I have used was kindly provided by our sponsor The Stamping Boutique and I adore it, check out the other girls cards for more sponsor images they are all gorgeous.  Well I hope to visit you this week, trying to turn over a new leaf and become a better blogger but with the kids at home anything could happen.  Oh and for those of you who read my last post, Ben had a great time with his football, he has been again and is loving it and it is so great to see him with other children like himself, they are all lovely kids and it has been a pleasure meeting them all and their families.
Have a great weekend!

Crafty Catz Challenge #90 - Vintage - DT

Hello, hope you are all well and thank you for visiting me today.  I have finally managed to find time to make a card, I am still being a terrible blogger at the moment but things are busy with the kids and end of term, they finish a week today for 7 weeks, deep breaths needed at that thought and with meetings and assemblys and one thing and another I seem to spend more time at the school than at home.  Anyway my card is for the current challenge over at Crafty Catz and this week Dianne has chosen the theme of ' Vintage'.  I love this look and have distressed the edges of the papers with some distressing ink and used one of the new images from Lili of the Valley, I love them and have a couple more I need to ink up and use.  I hope you like my card and can join us this week and I will try and visit you all very soon.  Ben starts football tonight, he is very excited, Manchester United have started a Down's Syndrome team for 6-16 year olds so it should be a fun evening and it will be nice to see Ben interact with other children like himself, I will let you all know how he went on very soon.
