Retirement card

Good morning my lovely friends (can you tell I’ve got a week off from work lol!) I am here to share another card that I made for my mother to give to her friend.  Again I’ve actually hand-stamped my image as my printer is still on the blink (it will be going through the window soon :(

The colours look a little “washed out” here but IRL they are a little more vibrant – another example of my useless photography skills lol!  I used another cutie PB image (forgot how many I have) and coloured him with my promarkers.

I can enter my card into the following challenges:

Just cute bears challenge – open theme

Quirky crafts challenge – ribbon

Sentimental Sundays challenge – encouragement & support (hope this counts)

Alphabet challenge – I for icy colours

Fun with shapes and more challenge – distressing (I inked all my edges with a chalk ink pad)

Craftalicious challenge – monotone

Paper garden projects challenge – anything cool (colours and teddy looks cool enjoying his drink)

Simple doodles challenge – fun in the sun (teddy enjoying the sun in his hammock)

Paper cutz challenge – use circles, stars or squares (I used lots of little squares in my background)

Penny black challenge – paper patch

A spoonfull of sugar challenge – animal crackers

Crafty cardmakers challenge – inky fingers (I inked all the edges)

Creative cottage challenge – summer surprise (anything summery)

I hope you have a wonderful day today, the weather is still lovely here, although it is supposed to change tomorrow.  It was sooooo warm in bed last night I actually slept on top of the covers :)  Thanks for stopping by today.
