Teddy Bo Challenge

A quick post from me then I am going to sit out in the sunshine:)  I’ve been quite poorly for a while now and one of the problems is severely low Vitamin D levels so on top of the 60,000 units of Vit D a week I need to sit in the sun for 20-30 minutes a day (I don’t do sunshine as I am so fair skinned so this is going to be fun – not!!)

I have at last gotten round to unzipping and using one of the Teddy Bea images I bought weeks and weeks ago, so am entering this in the Teddy Bo Challenge which is Punch it out.

Bea-swing 
OMW I am so in love with these images, this one had a tiny bit of shading on it which really helped to make the colouring quick and easy to do – me like easy!

I loved making this card so much I got totally carried away with the inside lol

As always lots of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and seam binding were used

  10. Please take care and try to enjoy the sun for a couple of minutes a day Bev!!! You cold use a sunblock anyway -I use factor 30 because the spring sun is so intense - and am outside for 15-30 minutes at a time and go indoors again. But after complaining about the long and cold winter it would be a shame to stay in now and I guess you could also sit under an umbrella which filters the light but still you get your oh so important shot of D!!!!!

    Love from Holland, Irene

  55. Hi Bev,
    Sorry to hear that you've been poorly - with everything that you pack into a day, I imagine that 'just sitting' outside would be quite frustrating...so how is the garden craft room taking shape?!! Absolutely gorgeous cards coming from you right now. Thanks for sharing them. Have a lovely weekend.
    Hugs, Janet
