Have a Beary Happy Birthday!

Friday, 10 February 2012




Hi everyone!

I meant to do this post last night and schedule it for this morning but I completely forgot about it!
It's my little sister's birthday today and we were having cake and pressies last night as she's going to the junior disco tonight.

It's Friday and it's been a fortnight since the last challenge at The Alphabet Challenge Blog.  We completed the alphabet last time so we're starting at the start again for this fortnight (it'll be my first full round of the alphabet!).
So the challenge is....

A for Animal Antics!

We were restricted to zoo animals last time so you can have whatever animal you want this time!

Here's my card:

 
The stamp I used is from Lili of the Valley and it's called Armchair Bear.  I coloured it with Copics but I made it a while ago and I haven't got the list :( sorry.


The papers are Authentique, Journey collection (I won these off Bunny Zoe's blog - and they're fab!) mounted on pale blue and kraft card.  The sentiment is from a Waltzing Mouse set called Fancy Phrases.
And no other embellishments!  Maybe that's the trick to men's cards - put nothing on them!


The inside is even more simple than the front!  I just used the same paper and a wee corner stamp from the Fancy Phrases set.

So that's my card.  You should pop over to the Alphabet Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's creations - they are really fab!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Crafts & Me; Use a new image
Moving Along With The Times; Cute Critters
Papertake Weekly; Anything goes
The Poodles Parlour; Anything goes
Stampin For The Weekend; Colour combo

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments - and a big hello and welcome to another new follower!  (I can't get into some profile's so I'm having trouble following back - if you leave me a comment I should hopefully be able to get to you that way.)
