LOTV #59 & Charisma Cardz #32

Hi girls, it's great to have you calling into my wee corner of the web. I enjoy knowing that you have been here and I hope you like what you find here.
I am ready to give up with this weather - it just can't make it's mind up what it wants to be. Still we don't need the sun to craft indoors so mustn't complain too much.
Now I am taking a risk posting this card. It's for my grandson Jonathan's birthday which is not till tomorrow. I don't think he'll see this early and the photograph doesn't show the surprise inside anyway so all should be well.
I am entering it into two challenges. Firstly Lili of the Valley who provided the wonderful sketch I followed and Charisma Cardz who wanted "Teddy Bears". The images LOTV's "" and is coloured using my Copic Ciaos. The papers were all freebies in the Making Cards magazine. I haven't gone for any fancy embellishments - I didn't think Jonathan would appreciate my fancy flowers Lol.
I hope you like it and that you might have a spare minute to leave me a comment. I appreciate so much knowing who has been here and what you think of my creation. I value your opinions and love reading what you think.
Enjoy your day, stay safe and keep crafting.

Love and Hugs,

  13. Great image Fiona and great male card. Your grandson will love it. I think it can be difficult to make a card without all the little extras we usually add. You've got it just right though.

    Take care,
