We have a great Stampin Up prize on offer too!!

I couldn't resist using this Sheriff Bear image from The Clipart fairy, isn't he cute!!

This is an 8" x 8" card so there was room to add a string lasso!!

Tessie Turtle

Morning Folks!

It's time for another challenge over at Lexi's Creations and this time we'd like to see you create something using the following recipe:

1 image
2 flowers &
3 papers

I've used the adorable Tessie Turtle from Lexi's shop Fairy Dust crafts, if you are our lucky winner this time you could win some of Lexi's digis too! She was so fun to colour with the trusty promarkers, of course!! The papers are a combination of MME and Imaginesce too!

Now I have to admit that I've only just realised that technically there are more than 2 flowers on my card - I was only counting the embellishment not the image and the extras on the paper too - whooops!!

Hope you can find time to visit the rest of the design team to see their fantastic creations !!
I'm trusting blogger to post this for me while I am away for a few days so I hope he behaves himself!! Thanks for looking today,

Check out the main blog for all the details and don't forget to sign up for our fantastic Cricut prize too!!

For my card I have dug out a trusty old Penny Black stamp, this image just makes me smile everytime I see it and it is a dream to colour!!

The papers are a mixture from my scrap box, I'm not totally sure but I think the striped background is MME and the others are by Daisy Bucket.
Hope you all have a great rest of the weekend and that you are actually able to read this, I'm trusting Mr Blogger to do the honourable thing while I'm visiting my family!!

I've used a favourite old Penny Black stamp for my card this week which incidentally is going to be for my husband a bit later this month - we are celebrating 16 years together!!

The cute dog is coloured with promarkers and cut out with nesties labels dies and I've added a little heart shaped brad to his letter. The papers are more scraps from my box, Forever Friends if I remember correctly!!
