Lazy Summer Days

Morning , oops, 
Afternoon Folks!!
I'm back from a week away visiting family and looking forward to spending some of the bank holiday weekend in my craft room! The weather is a little brighter today here in Hampshire, let's hope it continues to improve because the new challenge over at Here Come the Boys this fortnight is:

Here's my card, using a Crafter's Companion stamp:

Love these cute bears, they are so fun to colour and doesn't he look relaxed, that's my kind of gardening!!

The papers are a mixture of Forever friends, scraps and card from the paper mill shop. The MB lavish branch die was whizzed through the cuttlebug and the charm and twine are from my stash!!
