Watch out for Teddys in your cup - Friday Sketchers+Simon Says Challenge+Fab N Funky challenge

Good morning everyone, my Dad is still not feeling 100% and we have finally managed to get him to go see the Doc today....men are so stubborn arent they...I needed a bit of therapy yesterday so decided to make Chicken and vegtable soup, its so theraputic to make and takes ages as I cut all the veg into tiny chunks by hand, theres nothing quite like it to clear the mind...my mojo is suffering at the mo too, I know why as my its is constantly on my Dad...well hopefully after the docs today things will settle down...right onto my card for today, the photos have made all the colour go a bit wishywashy but I had to use this fab little Teddybo bear lounging in his teacup, hes so sweet isnt he, the papers are Papermania, Im not sure what collection as they were lying in a pile, I really must have a tidy lol...I coloured the Teddybo with distress inks and paperpieced the cup and saucer...I made a scrunched seam binding flower and added a couple of loops of it to the fab Magnolia sentiment...I finished with a scattering of pearls...the sketch is from Friday sketchers and Im also entering it for the Simon Says stamp and Fab N Funky Make your own challenges...I was going to enter it for the Teddybo challenge but oops too late again...Im like the cows tail some weeks...always behind...have a wonderful day everyone, now Im off to put the finishing touches to my soup as it always tastes better the next day

I've found cat hair in my cup before now, but never a whole teddybear! This is just so adorable Mina, makes me feel warm and fuzzy (well, warmer than I am at home at the moment). Think those PM papers are called Regency or something like that, I have them too and they are gorgeous. Super card. Hope things get better for your dad real soon. Sending hugs, Sxx

Hope your dad is okay tho' and glad you got him to the doc, I have to shoehorn my mum to go - doesn't like to be 'a bother'!That sound you hear is my tearing hair. Love your teacup teddie; all the cuteness and none of the mess of a teacup pig! Take care, Hazel x

Pat said...

Great card, Mina. Thank you for visiting my blog and sending a welcome to the new great granddaughter.

I think we need a mojo slowdown at times, and being able to tend to your Dad's needs is very important and those are the things we all remember later in life. Soup helped you both, I bet!
HUgs, Pat
