Just Cute Bears#36 Swirls and Bling.

Good morning everyone and I hope you're having a nice weekend in spite of the weather! At least the weather here hasn't been very nice here in the Aberdeenshire. After 2 horrendous days I was very surprised to come home from a crop yesterday afternoon and find two of our neighbours combining barley. It must have been pretty wet so the drying costs will be horrendous. I suppose they must be getting desperate now. I know what it's like as we used to have a farm until my husband eventually saw sense  and sold the farm six years ago. He works just as hard now but at least it's not for the bank!!

But enough waffling. This week at Just Cute Bears we would like to see swirls and bling as well as a bear on your creations. We are sponsored by Paula at Pollycraft this week so I'm sure the winner will have a treat in store.

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week. I enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing how you interpreted our "Punch it" challenge. I'm hoping many of you will join us again this week. I'm still firmly in Christmas card mode and I thought the theme of swirls and bling was perfect for another Christmas card. So here it is.

I used :-
Image :- Forever Friends.
DP :- MME.
Colouring :- Promarkers, Sakura clear glitter gel pen.
Swirl and snowflake :- Sizzix.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Ribbon, gems, button, string and Stickles.

I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers so I'll be entering this card in their challenge. I'd also like to enter the challenge at Charisma Cardz where the challenge is Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking and hope you like. If you have time to leave a comment I'd be really pleased. Please pop over to Just Cute Bears if you haven't already done so and see what my talented teamies have made this week. I'm sure they'd be pleased if you left them a comment too.

Oops I forgot to say that our challenge is moving to fortnightly so you have until 9th of  October to enter and our next challenge will be on the 10th of October.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
