Just Cute Bears Lets Go Dotty GD card :-)

I am thrilled to have been asked to be a GD for a month over on the Just Cute Bears Challenge ,,, one of my FAVE challenges :-) I was never very keen on bears to be honest ,,, then all of a sudden I LOVED them !! I think what converted me originally was Gruffie, and now I am collecting all Bear stamps ,,, so if anyone has any they want to get rid of ,,, lol :-)

Thanks for inviting me Cathy :-)

The theme this week is

LETS GO DOTTY ,,, nice and easy eh !! :-)

For my card I used my gorgeous new Milton and Robin stamp from the Wild Rose Studio. A little plug here ,, my lovely friend Emma sells them in her store Crafty Emma Store :-)
I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Broken China distress ink ,, it doesn't show up much in the photo ,, but it looks lovely IRL ,, you just have to take my word for it lol :-) I added the compulsory Star Dust Stickles here and there for sparkle. The papers are from My Minds Eye, Signature Christmas book. The dotty ribbon was white and I coloured it with a copic pen, the sentiment is from a LOTV sentiment set.

Challenges :

Sweet Stampin',,, Winter Wonderland
Bah Humbug ,,,,, Christmas Carol or Song,, Who Killed Cock Robin !! aww
Stamp Something ,,,, Something Cute :-)
Paper Romance ,,,, Furry Friends
Crafty Cardmakers ,,,, Glitter and Sparkle

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one, the DT have made some Beary gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Just Cute Bears Challenge to see them :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to check it out and hopefully join in !! :-)

Annie said...

Wow this is fabulous as always Lorraine. Gorgeous image - think I may have preferred 'Rockin Robin' as the song though - don't like to think of that cute robin being suddenly set upon by a psycho teddy. LOL!

Thank you so much for joining us at Bah! Humbug! And good luck in our prize draw this week.

Hi Lorraine.
Such a gorgeous cute card - love the papers ... love the sparkle and all the finishing touches are perfect. LOL at Ann's 'psycho teddy' comment - she's a nutter. Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
