A Sweet Bear for Monday


I had to step away from this card cos I kept added touches and I begun to wonder if it was too much. I've used this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday latest sketch.
I know the papers are Echo Park but not quite sure which one. The bear is Lily of the Valley and my flowers are a MFT die as is the swirl. Cuttlebug corners as well as the Quickutz one. I used a touch of glossy of accents for the lens of her glasses too.
Well we had a typical British BBQ yesterday, first off the BBQ was lit under the gazebo while it rained and rained even more, my Sis was about to sort it out as an inside BBQ when bits of blue peeked out of the clouds. Suddenly the BBQ was out from under the gazebo and the garden table was laid it was bit chilly so some of us were wearing blankets.
All the girls made sure we were sitting under the gazebo has more dark clouds surrounded us and at one point the gazebo blew off the ground but we British are tough stuff and even though it got chilly we all stuck it out and had a thoroughly good time.

  30. Hi Debby, lovely card hun, really like the bright colours on your papers! It sounds like your afternoon looked a lot like mine LOL! We went out for an outdoor concert and sat on the grass on a blanket, one minute holding on to our umbrella's when it was pouring with rain, and the next puffing from the heat when the sun would come out. But us Dutch tough people stuck it out like you did LOL! Hugs, Frea

  31. Another corker, Debby! The flowers are beautiful, the papers are gorgeous, the colouring is lovely and the decoupage is, as usual, amazing!!

    In Britain, it's de rigueur to wear oilskins and a sou'wester for a summer BBQ! Have a good week!

  44. This is great Debby...love that cutie. Fab colouring.
    Just a question with your colouring.......do you always use pencils and if so which red shades do you use as they always seem like true red rather than orange like mine.
