Oh What a Beautiful Morning!

Morning all, what a beautiful morning here in Bath, shame I have too much to do to enjoy it! We have a new challenge over at Di's digi designs and this week we are thinking about beautiful borders. When I saw Di's little Sunflower bear, I just had to use him to make a card for my Mum's birthday yesterday. My Poor Mum has been through the mill a bit these last few weeks, two operations and a severe nosebleed, so bad that she had to be hospitalised, but I'm so pleased that she's now like a new woman! The operations were a success, as she underwent pioneering treatment at our local hospital and the op was filmed to be used as training. It made my Mum laugh that her veins will be famous for years to come!
Anyway, I digress, my gorgeous image is Sunflower bear and I dug out my promarkers to colour this cutie, a couple of dies and a wee bit of stitching and it's job done!

I am entering this card in to the following challenges.
Allsorts - In the Garden
I love Promarkers - All stitched up.
Cupcake Craft challenges - Summer Scene
Papertake weekly - Anything goes

I love your card, gorgeous as always.

Pencil practice

It takes ages to colour with  pencils and this one is no exception. It took a good few hours to get all of these layers down on the image....
