Just Cute Bears #1 One for the Girls.

Here we are then girls our first challenge at Just Cute Bears. And it's a great challenge, this week we would like you to make "One for the Girls." How easy is that? I'm sure lots of you have teddy bear stamps of some kind. It would be really nice if you could manage to join in and support us in our first challenge.

This week we are being sponsored by the very talented Kim MacFarlane of Cuddly Buddly Crafts. I'm sure many of you will know about Cuddly Buddly Crafts. They sell rubber stamps, digi images and papers, and lots and lots of other crafting goodies as well.

Here is what Kim is offering for the lucky winner this week. Wish I could enter, I would love this stamp lol!
Here is the card I made for the challenge. I coloured this lovely Popcorn Bear image with Promarkers. I love Popcorn, he is so sweet. Believe it or not this is the first Popcorn Bear I have ever coloured. I have lots of different bears but I think he looks quite special! In honour of our first challenge I've used some of my favourite MME Laundry Line DP. This paper is so gorgeous, it is thick and glittery and beautiful colours. I have layered it on some lovely blue "Gemstones" pearlescent paper. I did a little faux stitching and finished off with some white Prima flowers edged with pink Promarker and card candy from Craftwork Cards coloured with blue Promarker to match.

You can find links in my sidebar for each of my talented teamies so please pop over to their blogs and see their beautiful work. We would all really appreciate it if you have a minute to tell us what you think of our work and the challenge.

So there it is girls a nice easy challenge to start. I'm sure most people have at least one teddy stamp or digi image. I can't wait to see what you make, I know there are a lot of very talented crafters out there. Almost forgot...all entries to be in by 10pm (GMT) on Saturday 30th January.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Kat xx
