seeing spots and checks...

Good morning everyone well I'm not here but I am if you know what I mean...I'm away but hopefully Mr Blogger technology will do my proud this week...you should have seen us struggling to stuff a three seater sofa into the car yesterday...a couple of shoe horns or three burly men might have helped lol, at the finish we gave up and didnt take it...my card for today is for our new monthly challenge at The Pretty Little Ribbon shop challenge and this month the choice is mine and I chose Monochrome so I hope your all going to join in so I can see your gorgeous creations...I chose lilac and this stunning Teddybea image called Teddybea_139 isnt she so sweet, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her gorgeous little dress, I used a mixture of lilac papers from Craft Creations, a beautiful lavender sheer polka dot ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon shop, a Prima flower and a silver charm...I used the gorgeous sketch from the Pink Ink sketch challenge and I'm also entering it for the Cardmadfairy Digi days challenge and the Stamp Something September digi day challenge too...have a wonderful day everyone and if you have time pop on over to The Pretty Little Ribbon shop blog to see what the rest of our amazing team made

How pretty! Love the glittery balloon, boots and ribbon. Would have loved to have seen you trying to shoehorn a 3 seater sofa into the car. Bet that was funny...although probably not at the time! Hope everything else is going well.
