Just Cute Bears # Bev's Sketch

Good morning everyone. I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. We have had a great week in Aberdeenshire except......it poured yesterday while I was at work! When I came home I had to empty the water out of my basket to put the washing in it. Then I had to re-spin it before I could tumble dry it. But hey bad things happen sometimes and at least we didn't have the thunder and lightning they had west of Aberdeen.

I went to a crop after work today and had this card all organised but....there's always a but isn't there? I'd forgotten to take an edge punch with me. I did get the image coloured and everything ready to stick together. So all I had to do was stick it together and add some pearls, a sentiment and my new ribbon. But could I get it uploaded to the DT blog? No not easily! I'm not sure if it was Mr Smart Alec Blogger or my broadband. When I did get it uploaded I then messed up shifting it from the beginning of the post to the end of the DT pics. I hope I got it sorted eventually without messing up the rest of the post!!

But enough of my fun with uploading. Here is the little cutie you can win this week. Kindly supplied by the ever generous Kim at Cuddly Buddly.

Our very talented GDT Bev has given us a great sketch to follow this week. We don't mind if you turn it round as long as we can see the original sketch that's fine.

I used:-

Image :- LOTV - Deckchair Dreaming.

Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.

DP :- MME laundry line.

Colouring :- Promarkers. Chalk for sky (if you can see it!)

Pearls :- the Hobby House.

Nesties, Stampin' Up! punch, ribbon from stash.

Hope you can find time to pop over to Just Cute Bears to check out what my talented teamies have done with Bev's sketch. The other girls have made some beautiful cards this week and we'd all be really pleased if you could leave us a comment to let us know how we're doing.

Thanks for taking the time to have a look at my card and for any kind comments you may leave. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
