oooohhhh the clouds are back - Teddy Bo challenge 7 + Sweet Stop sketches challenge (oops too late)

Good morning everyone as you can see from my photos the rain clouds came back here yesterday with a vengeance, I knew all that lush sun was too good to last, well I got all my lists done yesterday and sorted out the little piles of clothes and went to start the washing and oopsie no washing liquid...oh well I had a choice get ready and trudge to the shops in the rain or craft...guess which one I chose lol...my card for today is using the fab sketch from the Sweet stop sketches challenge but I did my cows tail impersonation again and was too late for it...oh well its a brill sketch anyway...its also for The Teddy Bo challenge which is punch it out...I'm defo not too late for that though I double checked, this fab Teddybo is called I love you Bunches, isn't he just a cutie and I love all those lush tulips, I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with these lush papers from the Prima Sparkling Spring paper pad, the frame one I cut out and I distressed the edges of the others, the sentiment is from a Kaisercraft sentiment set, when I buy a phrase sentiment set like these I keep them on the sheet they come on but cut each word out too so I can use them separately too...I finished with some scattered punched leaves to finish...please make not there are no buttons or ribbon on this card lol...right I'm off to get to the shops I cant put my washing off anymore, I was going to go to Belfast for the craft show today but changed my mind as I really don't want to drag Phil around with me...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and don't forget your umbrellas

Love the sweet floral you chose to punch your embellishments out of. Perfect compliment to this image. Good for you choosing coloring over laundry. Here it is Sunday night and I am just now drying my last load of laundry. But I did fit some coloring in.
