For a Child

Hello everyone.. I'm still here :P My posts are so sparse lately, sorry, but have lots going on at the moment...  long hours at the office, hubby on leave and painting the house, and the usual Bokwa classes and marathon training as well!!! Since I had my birthday this year and reached the age of 45 I have become somewhat of a fitness enthusiast (or freak?? ha ha). Last Sunday in fact I did the 7km President's Fun Run for Charity and I really enjoyed it. I used to do it as a walk but I've been wishing to do the run instead, so this year, after lots of training, I managed it and am so proud of myself too :) Really wish to continue, but don't want to give up my card making too.. and so I'm really hoping to be better off next year doing less hours at the office!!

Anyway, here's my card now, which I'm posting for the new challenge at

The theme for this week is

To make my card I used a Forever Friends stamp and if you look closely, even the ribbon has the cute teddy on it! I colored the image with my promarkers, border die cut is from Crafty Sentiments and then used Papermania die cut flowers which I've had for a very very long time... I really love it when I do this :)

We are this week sponsored by Marianne Design and there's this lovely prize for the winner.

I am entering my card in these challenges today
