Just Cute Bears #24 Decoupage.

Hi everyone and over at Just Cute Bears we have another challenge for you. This week we would like to see some decoupage on your card. I have to say that this is something I don't do very often and when I was in the middle of this card I remembered why lol!! I was going to do Popcorn Bear with golf clubs and give it to my uncle who will be 90 next Sunday. He's amazing, he's always liked his golf and the last I heard he was still playing! He is my lovely Dad's little brother and he's a lovely, lovely man. His sister will be 94 in September and she's quite a character. My dear Dad died of a heart attack when he was 74 or he would have been 98.

I think I will still do Popcorn for my Uncle Bill but probably not 3d him. I can't think of anything else I have that would do.

But on to my card for Just Cute Bears. I used this lovely image of bears in their bath from the Gruffies "Beary Good Times" decoupage set from Joanna Sheen. I love the designs but I don't really like putting them together as there are sometimes some very skinny pieces and I was using sticky pads. Have you ever tried to cut one of the teeny weeny pads in half. It's a lot of fun I can assure you! It's also quite difficult to photograph without showing the sticky pads. I should really use glue not sticky pads but it's done now. I'll remember next time!

So here's my card and I hope you like it.

I used :-

Image & sentiment :- Gruffies Beary Good Times decoupage from Joanna Sheen.

DP :- Wild Rose Studio.

Card candy :- Craftwork Cards coloured with Promarker to match.

Stickles for bubble bath.

I've kept this very simple as it's such a big image.

I'd also like to enter some challenges with this card :-

ABC :- X for extra dimension.

Simon Says Stamp :- Check it out - use gingham or checks.

A Spoon Full of Sugar :- Animal Crackers.

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge :- Water, water.

I hope you'll manage to find time to check out Just Cute Bears to see what my talented teamies have made this week. We also have a GDT this month. The very talentedRebecca is joining us every week in July. Please pop over to her blog if you have time, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for looking and it would be lovely if you have time to tell me what you think and of course I could visit your blog too.

Enjoy what's left of your weekend.
