I *heart* Teddy Bo!!

Evening Everyone. I know it probably sounds like I'm always making excuses at the moment but to be honest with you, I've got some personal problems going on right now and I'm so worried and stressed out about it all that it's all that I can think about and whereas usually when I get any time to myself, I spend it crafting, at the moment, I just spend it with thoughts whirling around in my head. I'm sorry I can't be any more specific than that but it's to do with my son, Sam and so I don't think it would be fair to talk about it here. I hope that you will all bear with me until I come out the other side because all the friends that I've met in blogland really do mean the world to me and I appreciate each and every one of you, and it would mean even more to know that you'll still be here in the weeks to come.
Anyway, enough of the depressing stuff! Here's a card that my friend asked me to make for her to send to her mum from her new baby, Teddy:
I thought Teddy Bo would be perfect - for obvious reasons!! And this image is my absolute favourite! I've coloured him with prismacolour pencils, blended with sansodor and used chalk in the background. I've used October Afternoon papers and letter stickers and added a heart doily that I got from Joanna Sheen. I've also added a Craftwork Cards sentiment, flowers from WOC and some pearls from my stash.
I'm going to enter it into the following challenges:
I really hope you like my card and I'd love to hear from you, as always. Hope you've all had good weekends and are all ready for the week ahead (or the Bank Holiday for those of you in the UK!). It's the half term holiday here, so Sam's got a week off (as well as lots of my friends - who are almost all teachers!) We were meant to be going away but things keep getting in the way, so I'm still not sure exactly what we're doing yet! Bye for now............xx
