This weeks challenge has been set by the lovely Franz and is

I had been asked to create a quick card (quick as in a couple of hours!!) so reluctantly put aside my markers (NO chance of colouring in AND finishing a card in 2 hours or less hahaha) and decided on some speedy decoupage.

I have been frequenting a lovely site, very similar to Crafts U Print but with a £3 min spend instead of £5, called Card Making Downloads.   They have some really lovely kits on there (some using Nitwit images, for those of us who cannot afford every new lush pack they release lol) and you even get money off codes sent through to your email address weekly (usually 10% off £3 and 20% off £5 spend)  You just print the sheets out, cut and past and they're done. Most have inserts and envelopes to match too.  Prices are very reasonable and, with some of the weekly reductions and Facebook offers, start at just 50p (and you get your discount off this too!!).

So found this lovely lil teddy holding flowers and my young lady thought it would be perfect, so I popped it into my basket (along with just a couple of other bits n pieces, well I had to make up the min spend hehehe).  Printed it onto Smooth Light Bright White 230gsm card from Craftsite which is fab and goes through my printer without a hitch, unlike 250gsm or higher, and is a perfect weight for card bases.

Cut out and decoupaged the letters and teddy then added some stickles onto the flowers.  Mounted the whole thing onto holographic mirri board and finished off with an iridescent ribbon tied in a double bow, Simples.

Hope you all have a good weekend and don't forget your sledge for the forecast snow on Sunday/Monday hehehe
