Tending Bar

I was absolutely delighted that my recent Teddy Bo card was in the Top Picks at Raise the Bar last week.  I was even more delighted that Joni offered me a Guest Bar Tending spot this week where their challenge is "Bundle Up".

I knew immediately that I wanted to use this brilliant image by Mo Manning called "Ready for the Snow" which you can find here.  And it seems particularly appropriate this morning as I woke up to a thick frost outside today.  I suspect it will see off the Penstemons in my garden which have been in constant flower since June.
 I used a sparkly floral DCWV design paper because it reflects my "favourite colour combo", which just happens to be the challenge at DP2, of red and turquoise and I coloured my image with Copics, adding a little latte into the mix.  Papertake Weekly have a "Free for All" this week where we can choose any sketch from their own library and I chose Sketch #54.  Cute Card Thursday want to see "snowflakes".   Mine are a Nestie/Marianne D mix, the tag punch is SU, the tiny sentiments are PTI.  I'm unsure of the origin of the larger sentiment which has been cut in a Nestie banner.
I'd like to say a great big THANK YOU to Joni and the Raise the Bar team for inviting me as a guest today and I'll see you back here tomorrow for my usual Sketch Saturday spot.

Have come downstairs and using my iPad and 3G network as the Internet has gone down again. I am determined to do some commenting. At least the builders had the presence of mind to install a flood pond between the stream and our houses so that we don't flood when it rains a lot.
Congratulations on your wins and DT spot. Love this card. That image is so cute. Your colouring is perfect.
Hugs Mrs a.
