Little Red Ted

WinkWinkInk have a challenge up at the moment for a shaped card... (not square or rectangle)... so using one of their free images, (isnt he just sooo adorable), I spent most of the afternoon, playing with Robbie (Robo), which was a lot more stressful than the colouring part, I can tell you, making up this card. Also this week Lily of the Valley have the theme 'Here comes Summer', well I know.. he got a little raincoat on, but.... I live in Uk.... and just as likely to use that even in middle of July !!!! so I went for a different take on a British Summer ! LOL... hope they see the funny side of it !!!!
I am a very happy little bunny, as this is a first for me, after only a few lessons, I have finally managed to make a shape, add a scallop back ground, cut out the backing papers and done all the oval and scallops ALL on Robbie, plus the darker blue parts of the flowers. (had a little bit of help with them) :) thanks Lynn .. I didnt want to put on my usual 'girly' flowers, as felt that the image as I had copic'd him, and the colours used on the rest of the card, called for something a bit more. 'funky' or young?...... completely different use of flowers compared to Thursdays card. lol I know what I mean !!
Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend, Im off to find all the other challenges I had in mind when I made this card... cos guess who didnt make a note of what was where , or save them to file until done the card !!!! .... worn out braincell from all my lessons on Robbie this week lol.. xx

Jackie, this is the first time I have time to sit and go through
your blog since you have come back on to the scene after your much needed and break and I have to say that you have lost none of your touch girl. Your cards are gorgeous and it takes me ages going through your blog as you pick such divine images that I am sent all over the place. Well done you I am certainly noting your use of the copics too.
Welcome back girl.
