Teddybo Challenge - Clean & Simple ;0)

Hi Crafty bloggers

Wow this week has flown in for me and finished the 9 days in a row at work so had a lovely lazy day yesterday. I am just having a blast at the moment I won my memories suite on one of my favourite blogs !! and I was playing with it and watching tutorials . It is so much fun and I even made my own blogger header so watch out as I am still practising so might change quite a lot lol.
I have made this crafty creation for my sister in law who is just so thoughtful she gave me a voucher for Slater's in Glasgow and I got a gorgeous Barbour style jacket ( just need the land rover and Labrador to match it now lol ) and the most cosiest scarf ever !! The service was amazing ! and the manager was so cute !! ( allowed to look) lol. So I thought I would make her a thank you card . I found the cutest and perfect image Teddybea_150 called which one ? .

 I just love her slippers and pyjamas !!! Great fun to colour ! I have been trying to get the colouring right on the folds !

I always tend to put so much on my cards as I get carried away lol. So my fella pointed out that this was much better lol ( the expert !!!)  It was so hard had to not even go near my embellishment box lol ! I made this simple  rosette and popped a bow on it.

Here is the inside just to write in it and post it later !

My fella in his wisdom has ordered me a cricut for my Christmas pressie (really sweet and has watched the whole sales pitch twice lol)  but I don't know as I really just wanted dies for my cuttlebug I just not to sure about the cartridges they don't look as pretty as dies what do you think girlie's ! 
Should I go for it or send it back when it comes !!

I shall leave you with the recipe underneath 
Have A super Friday I am off to make this weeks top tips tutorial it is gorgeous !!! 

Bye For Now

  2. OH Kirsty it's BEAutiful.....LOVE the colours and your folds are perfect!!!

    I would go for the Craft Robo instead.....Cricut you can only use THEIR cartridges...Craft Robo I KNOW you get software with that allows you to print out your own text and shapes AND it has a WONDERFUL store where there's a free cutting file every week and it's not that expensive!!!

    I tried the Cricut Imagine and sent it back, but I WAS looking for it to do far more than it did!!

  3. Hi kitty,
    Wow what a stunner,beautiful soft colours and your colouring is fabulous....I'm sure your sister will be so pleased to receive such a gorgeous card....I'm hanging my head in shame here as I have a Cricut machine,had it about 2 years and in that time I've probably used it about 6-8 times...I prefer dies...Hope this might help you decide what to do..Have a lovely weekend,I have some colouring to do,new Tilda,wink

    Can't help you on the cricut front as I don't have one, I've heard too many people say they have only dusted theirs off a handful of times to play with so I'm guessing it's something I would neglect too.
    Your blog header looks fab hun, congrats on your win :)
