Zooming Along


Well i had a lovely Saturday afternoon at The Glitter Pot, where i met up with my lovely friend Louise and we did a class using the Tim Holtz on the edge sewing die, in devine colours.  On Sunday we went to Dunsfold Park (where they film Top Gear / where a charity event was on) for Alan's Father's Day present, where he was lucky enough to be a passenger in the latest McLaren MP4 - 12C and apparently at one point they hit 170mph - eeek, thank goodness i wasn't the passenger !!!

As there are quite a few Men related themes around i thought it was about time i coloured this sweetie and practice colouring teddy bears :-),  the papers are ages old from 'Creating Keepsake', sentiment are LOTV - 'Tags', buttons from 'Papermania', punched edge 'Stampin Up scallop punch'.  - OMG i must also be in a blue and brown phase at the moment - note to self different colour combo for next card !!!
