Racing Ted in brown

Evening all
Hope this finds you nicely tucked up in the warm with a nice hot drink (if you are in the UK that is!!)
I keep checking the weather report waiting for that snow but am not sure that my part of the country is going to get so much. I have new wellies at the ready too!!
It's got to that time of the year again when its just too cold to go out and play in my shed so I've loaded up my big travel bag and can hopefully sit in the nice warm dining room to craft for a bit- at least until the weather warms up and I get told to clear all my bits and chased back to my shed!!
I have a couple of cards on the go at the moment but both need a few final touches so will hopefully post them in the next week-one was made with some wonderful 'clearance' goodies bought at Hobbycraft at the weekend-there's nothing quite like getting a good old craft bargain and I came home quite over the moon!!
I suddenly realised this morning that I need to send a male birthday card quite urgently (which I hadn't prepared for) and remembered I had one in my box that I made at the end of last year. I also realised that I had forgotten to post it on my blog so that's what I'm doing today.
This card was made with my Racing Ted stamp which I've had for ages and really love; he's been used for male cards as well as driving congrats in the past. He's coloured with my promarkers and I used papers from the Wellington pack and added some card candy to finish, hope you like him.

I'd like to enter him into the following challenges:

Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge 110 - Teddy Bears
Papercrafting Journey challenge - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine challenge 69 - Anything Goes
Squirrel and the Fox challenge 35 - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky challenge 154 - Get Moving
My Mums Craft Shop challenge 1 - Anything Goes

Enjoy your evening and I'll hopefully see you at the weekend with my Tea for Two card!
Thanks so much for stopping by and until then.

    P.S. You and I are at opposite ends of the temp. scale - while it is too cold for you in your shed, mine is like an 10.30am it is 42 degrees C, and climbing! (last week we had several days at 46). My tiny little air conditioner in my shed just can't cope on days like this. x
