Something different......

Good afternoon (only just) fellow bloggers....what a gorgeous day it is here in London.  I have spent a couple of hours washing and polishing our laminated floor in the dining room - such a pain but badly needed doing.  Looks a treat now thankfully - not so my poor knees tho!

I promised my loyal followers an up to date pic of our beautiful grandson Kai so here he is ~

I have never known a baby so bright and alert.  Nosy; looking all around him constantly; always moving around; watching your every move.........we love him to bits.

Onto today's card which is a wee bit different for me - after seeing Pickle's CAS work and cards from Chrissy I felt inspired to try a less cluttered card and here it is folks....

 I just adore this image from Teddy Bo site - the look on his face is just fantastic don't you think - has he been naughty, is he shocked, afraid, I don't know do you?
I used my Hougie board to score 2 horizontal lines just wider than the width of my Pink Petticoat DP - not easy to see on my pic - then simply added my coloured image and wee sentiments.

Fairy D Cat from Teddy Bo coloured with Prisma pencils;
Grey gingham DP from Pink Petticoat and
Sentiments are in my stash - lost wrapping so not sure but think they are Personal impressions.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges please ~
