James


When I saw the sketch on Sketch Saturday it reminded me that I had this image waiting and he would be perfect for that sketch.

The papers were sitting on my desk too so obviously I put the two together.  used the Cherish punch from Martha Stewart to make my centre strip a bit more interesting. Made a bit of mess punching out the semi circle but lucky for me the Upsy Daisy from MFT hides that.


I confess to buying the Penny Black sentiments dies maybe just a little too big for my liking but thats not going to stop me from using them.


Its heads down and make cards the next few days, I'm away at the weekend and need some cards ready for when I come home.

Your bear is cute, but the bunny was adorable! I am continually amazed at the volume of cards you are able to produce. But they are always crisp and clean. And your ideas for formats seems never ending. I always look forward to your blog!

Lovely lavendar...and adorable teddy. I'd never have thought to use that MS punch that way--opens up lots of ideas. Thanks for continual inspiration. Hugs, Kathy
