Spring Bear On Flower

Good morning to you

Wasn't it a cold weekend, I spent some of it playing in my craft room, a tiny bit of it doing housework and then the rest cuddling my little Gem.  She is now 11 month old and really settled and a very good girl. She has helped us immensely to cope with the loss of our beloved Star. Although the photo's of her and Star together show how much Gem has grown since we first got her.  My son will be moving out soon, so I will be moving my craft room into his bigger downstairs bedroom and then Gem will be able to come in and out as I craft, can't wait. In a couple of months time Gem will be having a friend join us another little girl to keep her company, can't wait for that either :)

So today is my normal day for posting my card to inspire you with those products from

I wanted to make a thank you card using Spring colours, so here is what I came up with 


Papers - Peach Blossom
Image - Bear on flower

The card blank is a 14.5cm square scallop from Create and Craft

The base colour and contrast is white.  I love how the white contrasts so well with the peach tones in this paper pack.   I added a frame made from my new Sue Wilson's square double punched layering dies, this allowed me to add a frame of bling from the lovely America around the card again.  I added the oval die with the copic coloured image onto it and tilted it so that the image was straight.  I added some corner die detailing, the with love die sentiment from the Floral frame and then those lovely florals from IAR and a little apple from Live and Love Crafts.  I sneaked a bow in their too. I added some of the bling to the sentiment and the image frame.

The image is coloured in copics with added stickles on the flower centers and the butterflies.  I decoupaged the teddy larger flowers and the leaves along with the butterflies, to create some extra depth.

I would like to say thank you to all of my visitors who leave and inspire me with their lovely comments.
