I Love "The Bear."

I've made this card for the DT call for a new challenge blog - Just Cute Bears. I don't think I will have much chance of joining the DT but hey there's nothing to lose. I love bears and this image from Hobby Art. I have lots of these stamps and they are great because you can use them for all sorts of occasions and of course everyone loves bears. I also have bears from Penny Black and Forever Friends and probably some others too. So as you can imagine it would be no hardship to make cards with bears lol!

I coloured the image with Promarkers. I had this card made yesterday but missed the chance to take a photo in daylight! I'm a bit disappointed with how the colours turned out. In reality the pink flowers are more like the colour of pink in the DP. The card candy is a stronger shade but still in the same family of pink as is the jewel brad.

I used :-

DP - K&Co, MME and the dark grey mats are DCWV latte.

Colouring - Promarkers

Card candy and sentiment - Craftwork Cards.


Apart from the Just Cute Bears DT call I am also entering:-

Cute Card Thursday :- Pink and grey.

Paperplay :- Furry friends.

Creative Inspirations Wednesday challenge :- New product - the bear stamp.

Charisma Cardz challenge :- Anything new -the bear stamp.

Crafty Cardmakers :-New - bear stamp.

What an idiot I forgot that I made the card using the sketch from Papertake Weekly. I love this sketch it was really easy to use. Papertake Weekly also have a DT call for a guest DT spot.

Keep your fingers crossed for me girls. I'm not that optimistic really because there are so many talented crafters and I'm sure lots of people will have answered this DT call. But nothing ventured and all that!!

I need to go and make some sympathy cards and at the other end of the spectrum finish off 2 baby cards for my friends and their son and his wife.

See you later. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It is lovely and sunny here today and not even cold - after the frost lifted. What a change after the last few weeks. But....and there's always a but isn't there?....there is still snow lying here and there. Or as my mum used to say lying waiting for more. She alway was an optimist!!
