I am a donkey!!!

Evening All. Hope you've had a nice, relaxing Sunday and a good weekend on the whole? We went to my Aunt's summer party at the sheltered accommodation facility where she lives, yesterday - which was a really nice day. Luckily the weather was lovely (and has been all weekend!), and it was nice to catch up with my cousin's - who I don't always see as often as I'd like. Today, I've not been up to much, just did a quick sprint round Sainsburys for a bit of shopping! I'm here tonight to share my DT card for Sunday Sketch and Stamp, which should've been posted earlier but I fell asleep last night before I managed to finish it off, so I'm sorry I'm a bit late. Here it is:
Image - Hanglar watercoloured with distress inks.
Papers and Die Cuts - MME Lost and Found.
Flowers - Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts.
Brads - Papermania.
Sentiment - Whimsy.
Other - Cuttlebug and embossing folder, Baker's Twine from stash.

I'm also entering it into the following challenges:
OK - now to the part of the post where I own to being a complete and utter donkey!!!! The week before last, it was my turn to design the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and I did the post over on the challenge blog all fine but then when it came to the post on my own blog, I somehow managed to post it in 2010!!!! The only excuse I can give is that I wasn't feeling very well at the time and had a head full of cotton wool!! It only occurred to me to go looking for it cos I realised that I'd had no comments on it at all - and I didn't think it was that bad!! Here's the card in question:

Image - Teddy Bea coloured with prismacolour pencils blended with sansodor (and a bit o' stickles!)
Papers - First Edition.
Flowers and Seam Binding - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Charm and String - Crafty Emma's.
Button - QVC.
Other - Doily and Border die from MFT.

I'm entering this card into the Teddy Bo Challenge #14, which is to use Teddy Bea only!

Right, I think that's about it from me for now! Have a good week ahead - and I'll be back soon...........x
