Just Cute Bears #25 Helen's Sketch.

This week at Just Cute Bears we have a lovely sketch from our talented teamie Helen. I love this sketch, thanks Helen.

This week we are sponsored by MELJEN'S DESIGNS and the lucky winner will get 3 lovely bear images. Hope you cand find time to enter!

I was a bit last minute making my card yesterday evening as we had to go out and buy a new dishwasher. I checked out all the usual places.......Argos, Comet, Tesco direct and John Lewis. The idea of going into Aberdeen, where there are lots of road works and delays, was not attractive. So I said to my husband maybe we could phone a local store and see what they had. They had 3 integrated models so we set off for a look. The last one of the one I really wanted had just been sold so I took another one rather than wait. And the best of it was that it was £20 cheaper than exactly the same one in Argos. So much for Argos being cheap! And the best of it was that about 5 minutes after we had paid for it it was in the back of our car. Wonderful what you can get in a Golf lol!

But I'm rambling!! Here is my interpretation of Helen's sketch. This was so easy and quick to put together. And you can dress it up with flowers or jewels or ribbon or bows or all three like me or leave it quite plain for a male card. Either way you can make a great card in no time at all. Hope you like what I've made and if you can find time to leave me a quick comment I'd be really happy.

I used :-

Image :- Forever Friends.

DP :- MME quite contrary (free in a magazine last week.)

Sentiment & card candy :- Craftwork Cards.

Flowers, jewels andribbon from stash.

If you can find time to visit my talented teamies and tell them what you think of their cards they will all be really pleased too. As usual I'm looking forward to seeing what you all do with our challenge this week.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend. I know you girls down south have been having really warm weather recently. Too warm for some of you I know. We've not been so lucky up here in north east Scotland. Today in particular has been really miserable and wet and drizzly and rainy and just yucky. Hope it improves again soon because we've had quite a lot of nice warm days!
