Just Cute Bears Buttons & Bows

Oh My Goodness ... I managed to take part in a challenge! I haven't done that for like forever!! I have made this for, as the title suggests, the latest Just Cute Bears challenge of using buttons & bows. I have used another of the LOTV Busy Bears stamps, this one is called Deckchair Dreaming. I have coloured him in with Copics and added highlights with my Inkessentials pen. Added the base with DST. The base is first a layer of 3 Bugs In A Rug Snips & Snails Little Prince paper and then a strip of Inch Worm paper on top which has been wrapped with SU! Linen Thread. I have then added a button and the bow is made from the thread. Message stamped to finish.

Window Box

Hello there, I hope everyone is having a nice Bank Holiday weekend? shame the sun has gone away though. here is the card that I made for Nan for her Birthday. I have used the very cute LOTV Busy Bears Window Box stamp and coloured with Copics before cutting out with a Nestabilities circle and mounting to base. The base has been made using the MS Baby Girl Multimedia Pad and then a punched strip on top using the MS Botanical Scallop border punch (which is currently on offer if you follow the link) and wrapped some ribbon around. I have then stamped the greeting from the Elzybells Tags - Floral Circles set and added some Basic Grey Opaline too. Some beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts (sprayed with Glimmer Mist) added to the side of the image with some leaves punched using the MS Frond Branch punch.
