Blue & Brown...LOVE That Colour Combo

** UPDATE **

Yay! This card WON at Send a Smile 4 Kids

Good Morning blog-buddies, I hope you're all having as good a weekend as I am?! We are at our caravan and my sis and family are staying here in a caravan on the same park too...there are 7 kids aged between 17 and 4 and they're all getting on like a house on fire :D

Onto this week's new challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD. This week we want to see your


creations. Ooooh, I LURVE that colour combo so I couldn't wait to crack into this one. Here's my card:
My adorable image is called Just Ted with Flower, and is one of Debbie's fab images available from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS, and currently on offer at just 59p. The DT have all created with one one of the Ted images,  so make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and take a peek. There are several Ted images available, including some fab ones for Christmas cards; find them ALL in TCP SHOP.

Here's a close up of my 'Posh Pins' which I made myself following the lovely Leesa's tutorial (thanks Leesa!)

A close-up of Ted, coloured with Promarkers...I tried to give him a textured/fluffy look...d'you think it worked? 

My sentiment ticket is also from THE CRAFTY PAD DESIGNS, and coloured with Promarkers.
My DPs are Pink Petticoat and a freebie from My Grafico. Hope you like it!

Gosh, I nearly forgot to tell you about our sponsor this week! We welcome back CRAFTY RIBBONS who are offering up some EXCLUSIVE Xmas ribbons which they've designed themselves!

I will enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for visiting.
