A Favourite Teddy

Well Easter is just about over and all the family are back from their short holidays.
The neighbours are back home and I have given their key back and won't have to go out calling cats and trying to get them inside. I had no luck with one cat and he had to stay out every night. I still have one extra dog and not sure when they will come and pick her up as my son will go back to work. It is school holidays so maybe my DIL will come down sometime tomorrow. Adrian is going to go back to work tomorrow, I'm not sure how he will go as I don't think he is up to too much physical labour yet and he can't afford to break those ribs a third time! Hopefully they will give him a driving job that doesn't require too much extra work.
It's been quite cold on and off again today. Our youngest daughter came over with an old friend and we went to Harbour Town, a big shopping area near the airport that has a lot of clearance outlets and different shops. My daughter's boyfriend met us there. It was so busy it was really difficult to find a park. I bought a purse for my eldest daughter for her birthday later in the year and tried on a dress that was massively reduced. I liked it except the top was different colours than the rest of the dress and it was dark on one side and a very light colour on the other and I thought the light bit was not quite right on me. Looked at myself in the mirror for a while and decided "No" I tried on another dress that I liked but once on both my daughter and I didn't like the colour on me, so, LOL, no luck in the clothes department. I did get a hint from a shop assistant on an on-line shop which have several lovely lacy dresses that I liked and I might get one to wear for my daughter's wedding in November.
Anyway will get on and share today's card.
I've used SU Chocolate Chip card and made a side folded cardbase. I then used a layer of SU Garden Green card and layered two different DPs from "Totally Girl" by My Mind's Eye. The floral card has quite a distressed look to it, so "No" I didn't drop any ink on the bit on the inside, LOL, that is just how it looks! I cut a deckled oval in pale yellow cardstock from stash and layered it onto a piece of the garden green and trimmed around it. The sentiment was stamped in SU Early Espresso ink and is from SU clear mount set "Friendly Phrases". The bear is from a retired SU set called "Bow Bear" and was stamped in Early Espresso and coloured with Copic Markers. I punched some daisy flowers in two different sizes and sponged with the brown ink and added a small light purple circle in the middle of them. The inside of the card has a piece of the garden green and then a layer of the pale yellow and a small scrap of the brown floral DP to finish it off.

  14. Hi Sandy

    I hate clothes shopping! I see all these lovely clothes and try them on and nothing looks right on me so I end up feeling very disapointed and frustrated.

    I hope that Hubby's returned to work goes smoothly and he doesn't end up hurting himself again.

    Your card is gorgeous, what sweet little teddy. I love how you have decorated the inside of your card as well.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.
