Relaxed Card!

Good evening girls, I really thought I wasn't going to be able to post this card. It didn't matter what I tried I just couldn't get Mr Blogger to upload these piccies. I couldn't even get a hold of them in spite of the fact I had just uploaded them from my camera to my laptop. Never mind all is well now....I hope.

I've followed the lovely sketch from Stampin' for the Weekend. I have also made the card for Teddy Stampers who want us to use 2 DPs, 1 ribbon and 3 brads or buttons.

I used some of my very favourite MME papers - Pretty Please. I have bought some of these papers more than once but then the other week they were selling a set of 2 packets on QVC so of course I bought some. Then imagine my surprise when I opened my subscription copy of Cardmaking and Papercrafts and there was a free packet of papers. 36 sheets of 6x6 plus 2 sheets of tags and motifs. So now I can be generous with it!!

The image is the lovely Bear from Hobby Art and the sentiment is part of the same set. One of my favourite bears lol! I coloured the image with Promarkers as usual and edged the image circle and the sentiment with one of the Promarkers. This is another piccie to show the bubbles which are covered with a Sakura clear glitter gel pen.

I think the bear looks as if she is enjoying her bubble bath! I added a piece of ribbon and 3 buttons to finish off the card. I didn't want to add any more embellishments as the paper is so pretty that I didn't want to cover it up.

I'm going to make some plans now for my DT cards for Saturday - Totally Gorjuss and my very first DT card for Just Cute Bears. I've really enjoyed being on the DT for Totally Gorjuss my teamies are so talented and generous with their comments. And of course I'm looking forward to working with my new teamies on Just Cute Bears who are also very talented. Sometimes I look at my work and wonder why I've been so lucky to be chosen for both of these DTs but I always just try to do my best.

For a change I am going to try to get to bed at a reasonable time. I always have good intentions and then end up being late every night. I think there may not be enough hours in the day lol!

See you tomorrow with another card....I hope.

  1. Aww what a lovely card, lovely image and great papers! Thanks for joining us at SFTW :o) Kate

  2. Hi Kat, It's past midnight and I can't sleep again...so just turned on the pc....

    I will have to look out for that mag, the paper's are lovely. and I agree, less embeli's is best...you want to show off that gorgeous paper.

    Is your new DT all about Ted's, or do they bend a bit and let you use other cuddly toy type images like bunnies and so on?

    Good luck with it...you will be great
