Birthday Bear


Good morning everyone - hope you are enjoying the weekend. It's a sunny day here today so I think I may venture out shopping this afternoon. I really need to get down to some Chrimbo shopping but I'm not feeling inspired right now ... people are so difficult to buy for lol!!

Anyhoo here is a quick post of  card I made for my work team-mate's birthday yesterday. 


I kept this card very simple as I think men prefer it that way. The colours are shades of bright blue for a reason ... my teamie Simon is  a big Everton fan, which clearly indicates he's the right sort! :-)  

I have recently been experimenting with a new combo of pens for colouring teddies' fur - James is coloured using Tan, March Hare, Putty and Almond Promarkers plus Light Fawn and Antique White Flexmarkers. He actually looks a bit darker than the pictures suggest, but I think I like this colour combo. 


Stamps: LotV "Cheers Bear"; Penny Black sentiment from "Salutations" set;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Supplies: twine and button from The Ribbon Girl.

Challenges:
Oldie But A Goodie - Spots & Stripes
(stamp is at least a year old!)
Charisma #44 - Feeling Blue
Cupcake #217 - Get Krafty (2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes (2nd entry)
Sweet Stampin' - Anything Goes
OSCC - Anything Goes
Crafty Catz #158 - Anything Goes
Papercrafting Journey - Anything Goes
Kaboodle #144 - Anything Goes

That's all for today :-)
Hugs,

So do I Pauline - like your colour combo that is! Love it in fact. Your card is a great example of a CAS card. Hope Simon enjoyed his special card, and caught the significance of your colours.

Hugs,
Jennifer. x

Hi Pauline, ooh yes I agree fab colour combo for his fur - I don't colour bears very often for that reason, can't get the fur right!

Lovely CaS card - the twine and ribbon is a perfect finishing touch.
