I have been sorting through the many digi images I seem to have amassed, though have to say when I think about what image to use they aren't always the first thing I think of and I came across the cute wee bear from Di's digi's. I had decided that I would make a card purely for challenges, normally I have a recipient in mind when making a card as I find this makes it easier and find myself making fewer just for the sake of it.
I found the challenge at Simon says is for Heidi and her hubby Jason and their new bundle of joy Abigail so in a way this card is for someone after all though it will now have to wait till after the weekend to be popped into the post.
I coloured the image with my promarkers I really think I'm addicted to them and the papers are copy paper that I dry embossed with fiskars boards. The flower is punched from wrapping paper I saved from my sons birthday last month it's funny paper as when wrapped with blue gift ribbon the hues were more blue but next to the pink image the pink hues are most prominent. The punch is by Martha Stewart and it was what I chose with my $25 gift certificate when I won WOJ 100th challenge, half the prize went on postage but it's probably something I wouldn't normally buy so it's a real treat for me.The gem is from my stash and the ribbon is some my mum in law sent me from Tenerife.
I would like to enter my wee cuddly into the following challenges:-
Simon says-look what the stork brought
I love promarkers- pink and brown
I love 2stamp-layout
Crafty calendar-teddy bears
Rainbow lady-add texture
