I'm back !!!


I'm sure you will all be pleased to hear that, at last, I am starting to feel a little more like myself. 
Pneumonia is nasty and I have spent a lot of time doing nothing!!!!  I want to thank you all for your lovely "Get Well" messages, it has been a great help knowing that so many people have been thinking of me.

I see Simon has been keeping you up to date - I think he has enjoyed making mischief on my blog!!!  I have now put him back in his box, so he shouldn't be bothering you again LOL !!!!

I am still feeling pretty weak and it doesn't take much to exhaust me, however I have at least managed to make a card.

I used a free Digi Image from Beccy's Place, he is called Prayer Bear and you can find him HERE.

I coloured the image with Promarkers.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges: 

Teddy Stampers - Colour Challenge - Brown, Pink & White
2 Sisters Challenge - Teddy Bears Picnic


Image: Prayer Bear Digi from Beccy's Place
Colouring Medium: Promarkers
Paper: Stampin' Up
Flowers: From my stash
Ribbon & Brad: From my stash 
Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm not sure when I will be making another card, but hopefully it won't be too long, I've really missed crafting!!!

Welcome back Penni, good to see you posting again and I'm pleased that you are getting over the Pneumonia, I know it's a horrible illness but thankfully you are now getting over it. Your other half has been keeping us in check whilst you've been away, and a good job he's done too!
The card is lovely Penni, what a lovely sweet image coloured beautifully.
Take care of yourself
Hugs Jacee

Hi Penni, I'm so glad to see you back - not that we minded Simon popping on now and again but after what he did to your desk I think his box is the best place for him!

Your card is so sweet, the colours are lovely.

I hope you get back into the throws of manic everyday life real soon!

Sorry to hear you've not been feeling well Penni. Love your bear card though, the flowers and backing papers are beautiful and I love the little brad you've used to bunch the ribbon, really good idea. You've coloured your bear beautifully too, he's a real cutie. Annette (2 Sisters DT)
