I must also just say thank you for the Versatile Blog award that I received this week from the lovely Clare and also the lovely Christine .   I think I am going to have to opt out of passing this on simply because I have tried to pick 15 blogs and it is just so incredibly difficult. I feel that you all deserve to have the award from my blog so feel free to grab it and display.  Thanks ladies for passing it on and picking me as one of your choices. I hope you understand.

Ready Teddy Go Mid month reminder

Sorry I don't seem to have a lot of time for blogging at the moment...
I do want to share a card for the great challenge at Ready Teddy Go called its a wrap and also remind you that you still have two weeks to join us.

It's a Wrap - sounds like something you might hear on a Hollywood film set doesn't it but not this time ... this is a challenge which is inspired by packaging!!!!!

Marketing companies worldwide are paid a small fortune to come up with striking and alluring packaging to make us part with our hard earned cash.

Colour schemes and eye catching logos aren't just thrown together so . . . I would like to challenge folk to take their favourite product colour scheme and use it to make a card, a scrapbook page, a bag or box or indeed anything which also features a bear of course!

I was inspired by Options Mint Hot Chocolate for my card -

I used Busy Baking from Lili of the Valley, coloured with Prisma and Polychromo Pencils.
Paper DCWV
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley

Thanks for popping over today. Hope you have a good day.

Also dont forget to visit the Ladybug Crafts Ink for day 3 reveal of the new teen images.

Easter Egg Hunt Time.........

Here is something to hopefully cheer you up on this wet and dreary Sunday morning.  Mike has gone out so before I go out and do some shopping I just wanted to share this card.
For a few weeks now I have been colouring my images with my Copics and Promarkers but now I have reverted back to using my Prisma and Polychromo pencils for a while.   I do love the soft effect that they create and I do find the shading so muh easier with them.  Shading and shadows is still something that I struggle with to be honest so I think I need to keep on colouring lol!!

The image is Spring Bunny with Eggs from Lili of the Valley
Paper - Me to you Spring Chick
Ribbon from stash
Card Candi
Sentiment - Forever Friends.

I would like to enter the following challenges

Thanks for popping over today.  Hello to my lovely new followers, glad that you could join me.
Have a good day.

So my card was inspired by Kelloggs

The image is from Teddy Bo and is coloured with Prisma Pencils and Polychromos.
Paper is from MME
