Trio of Bears

Today's challenge on Penny Black Saturday challenge is to use more than one Penny Black stamp. I've loved these bears for ages but was always put off by my Sis by how much each bear cost. Then I saw last year that someone made a Christmas card with them and I knew I couldn't resist no longer.
The challenge gives me an excuse to use them and since Hubby's birthday soon I thought I use them for his card. The sentiment is a black peel off and I decided that as my Hubby is a gardener he won't mind the flowers. The papers are BG Oliver, I think this card has used up the last of the decent ones.
Do pop over to the challenge blog and see the amazing creations the team have made, not forgetting to see what prize we have this week.
Didn't have a particularly good day yesterday, it was one of those days that you could wish it would rewind and start again or even end quickly, fingers crossed today will be better.
