a laid back teddy...

Good morning everyone...firstly a deep apology I have been so busy I didn't get around to a fraction of you wonderful people that I wanted too, I love to look at your blogs and leave comments but I just ran out of time...soz everyone...so when I get back there will be a Bunny Zoe's monthly Candy and then a little candy from me to show I appreciate every single one of my commenter's and people who visit me....well all being well we should be packing to go to the farmhouse now and I have even persuaded my wonderful Phil to take a detour to Belfast and hit Ikea and BHS to buy a mattress and look at lighting...oh and you never know he may even take me out for lunch...although knowing Phil it will probably be a a hot dog at Ikea lol...how gorgeous is this fabulous Teddybo image called Bo's Bubbly Smiles, its a set of three so loads more for me to play with...I coloured him with distress inks and yes even managed to use the dreaded red on him...this lush lush paper is just a half sheet of Jillibean Soup paper, its from the New England Chowder range and is called Fresh Thyme...I wish I had bought more of this lush range when I got it...I finished with a ribbon and sentiment from my stash...now how daft am I as I based all my cards for posting on challenge and I'm not here to enter the cards for the challenges am I...well duh Mina...although one of you kind ladies could always pop my cards onto the challenge if you have time...this sketch is from the Inspiration Card Sketches challenge...right I'm off to finish gathering things to take with us so have a wonderful week everyone and don't forget to pop by as there will be something new every day as usual...a friend said to me I'm like Disneyworld...only closed Christmas Day, do you think she was being sarcastic lol
