Popcorn & cupcake


Just a quick post from me this evening .... please excuse the dodgy photo but I spent the whole afternoon with several cards on the go at once, and by the time anything came together it was already dark! I could have waited until tomorrow I guess, but I wanted to post this card as it is just skidding in by the seat of its pants to the deadline for Cupcake Craft Challenge #64, which is the following sketch.


I inked up my Popcorn Christmas bears for the first time today ... really gorgeous but boy, are they big! This does have one advantage though when trying to make a few Christmas cards, insomuch as there isn't a lot of room left on the card for too much other fancy work (that's my excuse anyway lol!)

I would also like to enter this card for Allsorts #26 - bring out your bling - I hope you can see the sparkle on the bear's hat and the glitter card snowflake ;-)

Recipe:
Main image & sentiment: Popcorn the bear "Beary Merry Christmas" - bears and surrounding musical notes. Bears coloured with watercolour pencils and doecorated with polar white Flowersoft and glamour dust.
Paper: Kaisercraft; "ice gold" pearlised white card from
Edwin Allen;
Supplies: sparkly red brad by Doodlebug; spacer from my stash;
Tools: Cuttlebug "embossed snowflakes" folder; Martha Stewart "Arctic Snowflake" punch.


Gotta go now and get sorted for the working week ahead .. no rest for the wicked, so they say!
