ROMEO ROMEO..................................

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all well on another miserable, cold day and still no sunshine :o(
Well I'm not gonna ramble about the nasty weather, but my little creation today! This super cute image is from Lili of the Valley and I think he is totally adorable. I have used again some S.W.A.L.K. cdrom papers from Crafters Companion which I'm loving at the mo. Just love the soft colours on this cd and such pretty patterns too, so you will probably see me use these lovely papers a lot over the spring/summer months lol! I have again used one of my fave flower punches from NS and some hat pins from Wild Orchid Crafts. Again a simples card :o)

This handsome bear is going into the following challenges :-
Friday Sketchers # 138 ~ Fab Sketch
The Fuzzy Wuzzy challenge # 5 ~ Anything goes
A Gem of a Challenge # 13 ~ Ribbon & Lace

Teddy Romeo ~ Lili of the Valley

Hi Vicky

I have been looking at all the lovely creations you have made whilst I have been away from blogland .. .. .. and also reading all your sad news regarding not returning back to work.

Not easy when you love your job so much .. .. but you need to get it sorted otherwise you might do yourself even more damage. But then you don't need me to tell you that do you.

Just think .. you will have time to make all of your Christmas cards and put them away for later this year LOL!!! (Somehow I feel that is the last thing you will want to do).

Your Romeo bear is gorgeous. I think he looks well cool in blue!!

Love Jules xx
