no yellow but a touch of orange instead...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fab weekend?...we had a lovely day yesterday, we had a little mooch in Town, met up with our beautiful Daughter and her other half and did a bit of shopping then home to make dinner for everyone including my Dad who came later...I love family days like that even if the men did moan a bit at our Daughter spending 35 minuets choosing a face makeup...you would think they would be used to her by now wouldn't you, shes at the age when 2 hours is normal to get ready, isn't it strange the older we get the shorter time we need to get ready...you would think it would take longer the older you get wouldn't it or maybe its all the training we had when we were younger lol...anyway onto my card for today which is using this fabulous TeddyBea image, isn't she brilliant I love how you could use her for any sentiment or occasion, even Christmas you could make the circle a bauble couldn't you, I coloured her with distress inks and used some of the stunning Kaisercraft-Homemade 6x6 paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, lush colours aren't they, the sentiment tag at the bottom is from the same pad too...I finished with a stunning wide checked ribbon bow and a few pearls...the sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge ...I haven't a clue what I'm up to today but I'm still hoping for the Lady Grey tea afternoon I was planning on Saturday, you never know do you...whatever your up to today I hope you manage to have a relaxing one
