Team Teddy

Hi,

Well the last couple of days have been a little hectic !! On Saturday H and his best friend Chloe met the author & illustrator of childrens books Nick Sharratt and H won the snap competition and for his prize Nick drew him a picture of all his favourite things (that he picked out of a book) and they included an Elvis outfit, jelly and a pet dragon !! Yesterday we went to a steam festival, which turned into a bit of a disaster as Whisper wanted to come with us and then hated every minute of it !!! and today H has done 2 hours of golf, followed by a bike ride round the park in Horsham.

I would just like to say 'Thank You So Much' i was so taken aback by all the wonderful comments on my last card, it meant a lot to me.

For todays card i've used a stamp, that i've had for a while and not used yet and it's a 7" x 7" card, which is unusal for me, as CES Challenge is 'Mix and Match' - where you have to use papers from at least 2 manufacturers - i managed 3 and  PB Saturday Friends  where the challenge is 'Touchy Feely', so it fitted in well, also there were a couple of Happy Birthday Challenges too.
