Just Cute Bears #5 - Lilac....

Another fabulous challenge this week from Just Cute Bears- Use the colour Lilac!!

One of my favourite colours :0) so I really enjoyed making my DT card!

I have used this gorgeous FF bear holding a bunch of daisies, I have coloured the image with promarkers. I use oatmeal, honeycomb and ginger for the bear colours, I'd love to know what everyone else uses for their bear colours?

The pretty floral paper is DCWV and I used my new Martha Stewart deep Daisy Fan punch to create the flower strip down the centre, love it! I can see me using it a lot!!!

As usual there is a very cute Cuddly Buddly stamp to be won this week :) and do check out the {BLOG} to see all the wonderful lilac DT cards!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, thanks for looking xx

Squiggle Stamps go DIGI!!

Here is a card I've made using one of the fabulous NEW Lilliputs range from Squiggle Stamps :)

ALL Squiggle Stamps designs are now available as digi {HERE}

Rubber stamps will of course still be available too and Tracy at Squiggle is expecting the Lilliputs range in VERY soon :0) But if you cant wait!! go DIGI!

The image I have used is called 'Squirrel Picnic', so cute!! The papers are Bo Bunny and the image is coloured using promarkers. I have tried something new when colouring the background. I spotted Elaine trying out this technique at the weekend after being inspired by Crissy. I loved the effect so had to give it a go too :)

The layout is this week's sketch #16 from Totally Gorjuss x

Just Cute Bears #3 - Hearts x

My DT card for this week's Just Cute Bears challenge of Hearts!
Valentines is just around the corner! but hearts can be used for many occasions :0)
I have used a pink/brown colour combo inspired by the lovely heart flower paper from Bo Bunny. The gorgeous teddy stamp was a freebie from a magazine last year I think, and this is the 1st time I've used him! I will definitely use him again!!
I have coloured the image with promarkers and the cardstock is SU, I finished with some punched hearts and the little flower gems x

A very bright card today!! you need your sunglasses!! I received these papers from Kath in a goody bag and thought they would be perfect for Oscar the Clown from Squiggle Stamps :)
I really enjoyed colouring this cutie in bright colours and I love the little sentiment to go with the image. Oscar would make a fun, happy card for many occasions :0)
I have used Jeanette's wonderful sketch for Friday Sketchers #87 this week for the layout.
Cant believe we are in a new month already!! Spring will soon be on it's way :) Although it does'nt feel that way today here in Scotland, it's snowing again!!!!
Hope the weather is better where you are x
