I'm back.....

...from a few relaxing days down in Northumberland, near Hadrian's Wall. Strolling through little market towns, scones and lattes and a wee cheeky red with my dinner, bliss! Although it does mean the crafty 'work' has backed up a bit.

I'm glad to see my scheduled post for my guest spot over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge published OK (see post below). Thanks for the invite ladies.

And, as it's Tuesday, nowadays that means only one thing, it's Teddy Bo Tuesday! New bears and a brand new challenge...pastels. Find out all about the challenge here.

For my card I used Teddy Bea 163 and coloured with copics and prisma pencils. Some embossing, twine and a little sentiment keep it nice and simple. And that's good 'cos I'm entering my creation into this week's Less is More....stars.

Our new member of the family arrives tomorrow and I'm soo excited. Will share some pics of the handsome Boyd (rescued greyhound) as soon as he settles in.

OK then, that's all my news. Off now to catch up on some DT commenting duties, maybe make a start on my next magazine commission and have a nosey at what you have all been up to. Oh, and don't forget to enter my gorgeous Fizzy Moon giveaway here.

Your beautifully coloured image looks great against the embossed background Liz. I've just come back from the North East and couldn't believe how warm it was!
