Bea with Basket of Strawberries - yum yum!

Good Evening blogger's. 
I have had such a busy week, that I'm afraid to say there as been no time for card making.
Won't bore you with all the details but looking after my 82 year old Nan and a 2 year old Grand-Daughter as certainly took its toll on me this week. Tomorrow is another day, and there are people worst off than myself.
At least I get a few hours break tomorrow before it all starts again on Thursday. 
The joys!!
On to today's card....I have to say I love this Bea ( Teddy_Bea 077 ) reminds me so much of when I was a child and looked forward to summer arriving for the strawberry picking....where we ate more than what went in the basket and felt so sick when we got home....then never wanting to eat another strawberry.
I have coloured her with Poly Pencils and again blended with baby oil.

Not the colours I usually use but just had to get these adorable papers when I saw them over at 
They are First Edition Papers 6 x 6 Premium Paper Pad - Spring Feast.
I have to tell you they are so LUSH!! A must have...the glittered effects and double sided papers are gorguss....and..200gsm too. I love good thick paper....helps an heavy card stand nice.

I cut 2 out and attached together to form a larger frame. The gap in between is hidden by the flowers and bow. But who would know if I didn't say?
Most of the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts - the silk ones are from stash, that I bought last year from a wedding fair.

Here is a pre-view of all new digi stamps over at Teddy Bo... aren't they just amazingly cute. I for one can't wait to have a play - that's when I have some free time on my hands. LOL

That's all from me tonight - I am off to bed....I so need an early night.
So Good Night to all - God Bless - Sweet Dreams.
See you soon
