 Hello! I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather... sorry I have not been in blogland for a while... I had a few health problems... won't bore you with them... but I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm finally acclimatising to the heat....

I haven't done any crafting though.... my mojo totally disappeared... but I have dug out this card to show you... I made it a couple of years ago for my daughter to give her grandfather for his 80th... back in the days when I had lots of time for colouring!!! LOL - now I'm pretty sure that I haven't posted this card before - but if I have.... then I blame it on the hot weather fuddling my brain!!! 

anyway... it's perfect for this lovely weather.... Teddy Bo is juggling his sausages on the BBQ or should I say burning them? - there is a lot of smoke!! hee hee - no... I think they are just 'well done' 

 We haven't got a BBQ but we used to get those disposable ones... and they do work ok... so might get one in for my parents Anniversary this month... it would be nice to eat out Al Fresco..

I coloured the very cute Teddy Bo with Promarkers - gosh I can remember from 2 years ago!!! 
the papers are from one of my all time favourite pads - DCWV - Latte
the gorgeous leaves are from WOC

I am going to catch up on some commenting now... then having jacket potato for tea... and watch Masterchef Australia... then might do some crafting... I think it's the first time in about 10 days that I've felt like getting back into it ! :-)))
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine! 
Love and hugs

I really like this card, Sue! I think you've put together some perfectly matching papers and colors, the card is beautifully embellished for a male design and the image is perfect for so many different occasions, like an 80th birthday! Great coloring too!
