The Bear Essentials

It's Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!  Well, here I am, back to reality as a non-Fairy, but in a way that is ok because it means I can join in the challenges again!  This week at LILI'S LITTLE FAIRIES the theme is Bear Essentials (chosen by Fairy Jayne - nice one sweetie) and I love my LOTV bears to pieces.


And what could be more essential than a good bear, with a chocolate cake, and a cute kitty.  That would certainly ensure you had a lovely day wouldn't it?

Ingredients for this little card are:  Stamped Image  Lili of the Valley I Baked A Cake  Medium Distress Inks (ReInkers) Sentiment  Lili Of The Valley Vintage Labels Just To Say Papers Scraps of First Editions  Extra Martha Stewart border punch

And while I was playing with bears, I made this little thank you card to send to the wonderful crafty Kath and Buddy who generously sent me a set of the Craftwork Cards Alfie Bear stamps.  I was so thrilled as they went perfectly with the ones I have already acquired!


I've kept this one as a CAS card, painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers), with a matting layer also coloured in Distress Inks, and added Hero Arts sentiments.  Isn't he the most huggable bear?!

That's it from me for now.  Another day at work and then it's the weekend - in about eight and a half hours, not that I am counting, lol.  See you tomorrow.

Hugs Sxx

Oooh gorgeous card! I love the papers and corners and the lacey border punch. That sentiment is scrummy - it's no use I'm gonna have to get some of the new sentiments! You're such a bad influence. And just how cute is that clean and simple card? Gorgeous! Have a super weekend! Hugs, Jayne xx
