Thank you all

I'm definitely having a teddy bear today. This beautiful Lili of the Valley stamp, which I have been longing to use, was a Christmas pressy from my good friend Lynsey. It is coloured with PMs and I added some silver glitter to some of the flower middles. I spent ages trying to decide which flowers to use, too much choice, so many Prima jars and bottles or should I punch some flowers. I tried all sorts but I am happy with my final choice. I used an old X cut corner punch and a rounded punch for a change along with my MSBP. Lynsey also bought me some lovely ribbon, which I resisted opening as I already had this stripey ribbon started and it fitted the colour scheme perfectly.

This card is a thank you to all for you for your lovely comments and encouragement. I received this award from Despoina and would like you all to have it.

What a cheerful picture on such a gloomy day. The wintry showers are back again. Right on to the challenges.
