Here I am again!

Hi everyone, I'm back with another card today, well fancy that!
This little cutie is one of a new batch of 'Teddy Bos' that recently pleaded with me to buy them. As if Teddy Bea isn't adorable enough on her own, just look at that little puppy she's cuddling (oh how I wish I could colour animals decently!)
I happened to have a quick peek at my bloglist this morning and caught sight of this week's Teddy Bo challenge, and... well, I thought it would be rude not to join in. I found a few other challenges that I think this card fits too.

Teddy Bo - Duck Egg Blue and Brown
Charisma Cardz - Four Legged Friends
Try it on Tuesday - Inspired by a song (Puppy Love)
Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush

I used a mixture of coloured pencils with Sansador for blending and Promarkers to colour this image. The sentiments are digis from Crafty Sentiments, the circle sentiment frame is my new Marianne die, this is the first time I've used one of their dies and it was so difficult trying to get it out that it made me curse!

Card Details:
* Image - Teddy Bea 'Puppy Love'
* Sentiment - Crafty Sentiments Designs 'Birthday Celebrations'
* Colouring medium - Coloured pencils and Promarkers
* Punch - MS Doily Lace
* Mats - Nestabilities and Marianne 'Circles'
* Everything else from my stash

On the moving front, the property should go onto the internet on Monday and into our local paper for the first time next Friday.
I've submitted some bits and pieces to a specialised auction house and we have a general auction house to go to next week with more stuff. We're planning on doing a boot sale with everything that's left after that and hopefully by then we should have got rid of all the things we stashed in the loft five years ago!

I'm hoping to do some blog hopping and commenting tomorrow to catch up with my favourite blogs, so you may hear from me again then.
