lovey dovey happy birthday

I would like to share with you the card that has nearly made me hang up my pokey tool! Version one of this card was started last night....stitching disaster. Version two shortly after that....a second stitching disaster - has my 30 year old machine finally given up on me? In between I did practice on a piece of scrap and it was fine.

So tonight I was determined. With the stitching done I picked up my image to attach to the card and....tomato soup! Don't ask. Anyway this time all was not lost, a carefully placed sentiment saved the day.

The image is a Teddy BoBea and I coloured with promarkers/copics. The papers are 'bubblegum hills' by Kaisercraft and the gorgeous felt that I used to make the flowers is from Sew Sweet.

I am entering three challenges....

TeddyBo....love is in the air

Cupcake....a fabby sketch

A Spoon Full of Sugar...happy birthday
