Sentimental

Hello my crafty buddies and I hope you are well today, not long until the weekend now!!

It's a very important day today... there's a new challenge at

As You Like It where our theme is Favourite Sentiment

AND it's also Samantha's Birthday, so Happy Birthday Samantha!!

Anyhow, here is my card...


...made using an image from our fab sponsor


I coloured the sweet bear with my Pro/Flexmarkers and plastered the balloon with glossy accents. 

Apart from Happy Birthday (which is always used as a necessity) I couldn't really find a sentiment that I use repeatedly, however I discovered that I quite often use phrases or inspirational verses so took advantage of a freebie that I picked up somewhere recently.

This was one of those "hmmm, not sure I like it" cards until I added the pearls which I think balanced it a little and now it's growing on me!!

Despite the misgivings I am playing along at these challenges

Crafting with Dragonflies #30 - CAS
Brown Sugar #102 - Pink and pearls
Crafting by designs - Use a sentiment
Addicted to Stamps & More #104 - CAS

Household chores and VAT for me today, don't I know how to have a good time!!?

See you soon xx

Hey Sarah!! Your card is so cute. I love your bear. I also love your sentiment. where did you get that from. I have to check out Lee's Digi shop. Great job.

MaryH said...

I definitely like this cheeky little bear with his pretty balloon. Also like the way you did the opposite corner treatment. The pearls were a nice touch, but it's also very wonderful without them too! This is a darling image, and your sentiment was just right with it. I did house chores today, and tired tonight. Let me know when your flight lands & I'll be the one waiting at the arrival gate with a big smile & a pack of pretty paper for us to play with! You're welcome to arrive any time. TFS &Hugs
