Bear Hugs

Helloooo!! It's time for another challenge at


So, the intention was to use a rather cute digi image from my stash but unfortunately I talked myself into pre-ordering  one of the latest releases from Stamping Bella so I just had to use that instead!! 


Now tell me that's not cute!!

I coloured them with Promarkers to match the scrummy papers from  Doodlebug Designs (Milk and cookies). My new (longed for) Tattered lace dies got their first airing too which was exciting!! I just think crafting is fab, in that so much pleasure can be gained by some paper, metal and a bit of rubber!! Designer shoes and handbags? Not for me!! Actually it's more like horse shoes and rugs!!

Anyway, you have a few weeks to dig out your bear stamps, papers, toppers or dies and join the Cuties...look forward to seeing what you make!!

See you later in the week with more Christmas!! xx

They certainly are cute! A lovely card. Temptation is everywhere isn't it, too many gorgeous papers, stamps and dies, I know what you mean.
Yes thank you I am fit and well just too many jobs to do and not enough time, I'm trying to visit peeps a bit more often but even that is proving difficult, I obviously need to organise my time better :)
Take care,
Lorraine

An adorable twosome and super cute card. Not interested in shoes, bags etc, just love making craft things and selling them for a charity. Even standing for 2 days in a Poly tunnel in a very cold 6 degrees and heavy rain and hail stones, for 9 hours a day. I still enjoyed the weekend!! Hugs, Carol S.xx

Ooooh I'm lovin all your new goodies Sarah! I think if you offered me a new fancy handbag or a spending spree in a craft store there wouldn't really be much of a decision to be made!! Though I'm partial to the odd spree in Lakeland kitchen shop too ;)
Great job with your colouring by the way :)

You won't hear me tell you that's not cute, Sarah! It is beyond cute! I didn't see the little critter on the bear's head at first as my eyes were roaming and taking in all the details! What a fun and funny surprise!! I think I have some of that pp somewhere; love it! Way to go using your NBUS right away!! Hugs, Darnell
