Who would have thought 2 could be so difficult?

Happy Sunday everyone.  Are you up to anything nice today?  It's sunny, the neighbours have left the lawnmowers in the garages so it is nice and peaceful, and I've had a happy hour stamping and painting.

After yesterday's not so great card, I've gone back to basics and a CAS card for you today:

I have used Wild Rose Studio's Teddy With Present stamp
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Ornate Corners are from a LOTV clear set stamped in Rose Bud Memento ink
Sentiment is from a Hero Arts set stamped in Grape Jelly Memento Ink
Matting layer is from a Nitwits download from Fairytale Solids

And the difficult 2?  I've been hovering between 598 and 599 followers (I say between because it has been up and down like a small yo-yo for the past ten days) - sooooooo close to the nice round 600 but never quite there.  Anyone fancy signing up just to make me happy?!!

I'm off to have another little colouring session while the light is perfect and later will settle down to watch the BBC highlights from the Bahrain Grand Prix.  If you have seen the race already on Sky, please don't mention the result until at 7.00 tonight!!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel. Love that sweet image and you've coloured it beautifully.

I know what you mean about followers, no sooner do you get a new one than someone else leaves! What I find worse is all the people who visit but never leave a comment! That drives me nuts. I've started a new blog at lilackatscorner to post my Stampin' Up! and people visit but never comment so I feel a bit lonely over there!

Enjoy the Grand Prix.

Love your CAS card, Squirrel,

What a fabulous card Squirrel - LOVE the Teddy and the gorgeous colouring. (Don't tell anyone, but I have a Teddy just like that - he's sat on my bed right now)!
Your yo-yoing followers list made me chuckle - I have been close to 400 for quite a while, and just like your followers, mine have been going up and down like a kid on a trampoline! Maybe someone will make me happy too, as I have candy at the moment! Hope you get that elusive number very soon!
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
