Another week another virus!

Stuck at home again with another cold, only just having got over the last one! The only good thing about it was I had been asked to make a card for someone who is retiring and I was running out of time. The cards I usually make in those circumstances are A2 size so they can take a while! No sooner was I finished that than I remembered my Aunt's birthday on Friday so I quickly found a challenge to do. I really liked the sketch over at Simon Says and literally threw this card together. It was a really easy sketch to follow. It did ask if poss to use Magnolia stamps but I wanted to use this one by my sister Jenni as it reminds me of my aunt, who used to make us cuddly toys when we were small. I coloured it with Promarkers and as I didn't have a suitable patterned paper I used a little teddy stamp to make some. The other bits came from my stash.
I am also entering it in The Color Dare Challenge and Cupcake Craft Challenge.
Now back to bed so I am fit for work tomorrow!
