Ooops nearly forgot this one!!

Hello there everyone, hope you are all well.   What a strange day its been today weatherwise, Don had an appointment at a hospital near Leek today.  It was beautiful when we left home this morning, we had a nice pub lunch before going to the appointment and as we left the hospital the sun was still beating down.  As we headed towards home we could see really heavy dark clouds ahead of us, looked in my rear view mirror and all I could see was sun and blue sky!  As we got nearer to home the sky was getting darker and darker, then the heavens opened, torrential rain and hailstones, then forked lightning and thunder.  We reached home and had to sit in the car for about 20 minutes, we couldnt get out of the car, we would have been soaked to the skin!  As I am sat here now though, the sun is shining again with a cloudless blue sky!  I know we needed some rain but I think this is a case of be careful what you wish for!!

Anyway, enough waffling from me, onto this card which I made weeks ago and forgot all about it!  I think I made it for a challenge but I missed the deadline..... duh!! so it was put on one side and abandoned.  Not for long though as it was granddaughter Jessica's birthday in April and this card was ideal for her.

The image is of course one of the fab Teddy Bea digi stamps and as a change from Promarkers I used Prisma pencils to colour her.  I just adore these little bears, there are oodles to choose from and they are a dream to colour.  The papers are Eline's Huis Roses are Red and the lovely postcard, which has been distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, is from Lili of the Valley new Additions stamp collection.  The sentiment I did on PC.

Well that's it for me for today, enjoy the rest of your evening and thanks for dropping by!

Hi Barbara, beautiful card! Funny, a little place in our neighbourhood (?) is also named Leek. But that is in the north of the Netherlands.

Have a nice evening,

Hi Barbara, I think we've had your Monday's weather today, sun, rain, big dark clouds, thunder storms, sun again - very confusing!!!
Your card is gorgeous, fabulous colours, papers and how can you not love Teddy Bea. The LOTV 'addition' stamps are the perfect accompaniment.

A really cute card, the teddy digi is super sweet and love the postcard. Great idea to put the name in the centre of the greeting - must remember that. I used to live in the Peak District and worked in Macclesfield, as did my husband before he retired and we often went to Leek too. Elizabeth x
