Love You Bearly

I'm back, well the good news is that I haven't got a chest infection - instead the doctor thinks I've got one of those yucky viruses that is going round so I have got to rest, take paracetomols, keep fluids up and 'have a couple of duvet days' (her words not mine!!! I love it) my breathing does feel a bit easier today just wish I could stop coughing.

Anyways a little card to share while I'm waiting to get some more done :) How cute are the little bears - the stamps were free with Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine - how cool - love free stuff that you can actually use. Got to use my nesties again, I love them they're just sooooooo quick and don't keep having to cut everything smalled and smaller until it's even. Still only got the 2 sets I got with my Christmas money so I'm thinking that it must be time to treat myself to some more lol.

Anyways coloured the bears up with my promarkers, the flowers up with the copics, added some glitter to Rosie's bow, glossy accents to the roses. As the image is quite small I kept the layout quite simple and used paper with a small pattern too, and some gorgeous velvet ribbon for a bit of texture.

Supplies: 'Bently Bear' Stamp free with Cardmaking and Papercraft, 'Forever Friends' Papers, Ribbon by Anna Griffin, Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug, Red Card by Doodlebug, Nesties
Extras: White Card, Red Ink Pad, Fineliner, Glossy Accents, Copics, Promarkers, Gems 

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

My Time to Craft Challenge 127 - Hearts and Flowers

A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge 138 - Lets See Some Love

Right well think I'm going to get some dinner and then under doctor's orders I will be heading back to my duvet lol XOX

Your card is just so cute. Love the teddies. I admit I just love my Nesties - I can't admit how many I have but call them a "work expense" since I need shapes for teaching. That's my story... I think you definitely need more! Thanks for joining us at For Fun Challenges.
