The new challenge set on the card making forum I belong to was nice and simple - bears! I used this sheet of paper and cut the image out from a second identical sheet and decoupaged them. I added some glossy accents on the 'drink' in the cup and also to the vase (neither the glossy accents or the decoupage shows up in the picture!). My usual Craftwork Card oval sentiments and Stampin' Up oval punches finished it off.

I made this card to a card-making friend as an RAK this month. The fold was taught to me by Elaine at a Stampin' Up evening held at her house and, for once, I was able to remember it when I got home and have made several since (just to make sure it stays in the brain you understand!). I think I used blue Brilliance ink to stamp and watercolour the little FF bear. The paper on the front was FF and the paper inside is Stampin' Up.

This card was for a friend of mine who, on top of caring for her poorly mum, is due to go into hospital this week. The paper was from a paper pad that came with a magazine and I used glitter on the petals and glossy accents and seed beads for the flower centres.
This was for a UKS challenge, the criteria were 1) use pink, 2) use bling, 3) use old stash.
I picked out my photo and then discovered I had no pink Christmas themed papers but dug deep and managed to find something that looked kind of Christmassy (it was so old I'm not even sure where it came from!) I added pink gemstones to the snowflakes for the bling and the page is generally pink!
Note to self for this year, acquire pink Christmas paper!
