True Colours

You can't move these days for and red white and blue - 
I even saw some Union Jack toilet roll the other day!! 
I draw the line at that :o) 
but, I thought I would give the colours a try on my brother's birthday card.


I used the cute Hugo, from Pollycraft.
Now that Paula has closed down the Pollycraft store, you can get her images from  Little Miss Muffet

I came so close to messing this whole card up when stamping my sentiment - luckily I stamped on some scrap paper first and my fav. stamp came out as 'nappy birthdau'  !! Time for some stamp shopping :-)

Great card Caroline, such an adorable bear image.

I'm so impressed at your bravery . . . I never find the courage to stamp directly onto my projects . . . always stamp onto scrap and cut out for sentiments, lol.

Thank you for joining us at Ready Teddy Go (I think for the first time? If so a very warm welcome) and good luck in the prize draw.

Warmest wishes, Julie Ann x
