Birthday Bear

Good Sunday morning my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend so far.
Yesterday I was treated to a trip to the cinema with Aaron and Oliver to see 'Sing' - it was fabulous and I managed to avoid stuffing my face with sweeties and popcorn and opted just for a Cappuccino instead!

I'm mega excited today because I am going to get a new phone and I think I'm going for the new iPhone 7 Plus - I can't wait :o)

But something even better than that to look forward to today will be having Sunday lunch with my snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby-Mae - I haven't seen here since Christmas :o(

But first I would like to share a card I made for my Sister's husband - using a much neglected James the Bear image from LOTV - love that Bear for male cards:
Loving the fabulous bright colours of this paper pad from Echo Park :o)

Card Ingredients:
Image: LOTV 'James - Cheers' I used the rubber version but he is now available as a digi
Design Papers: Echo Park 'Birthday Wishes - Boy'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Spellbinders: Plain and Scalloped Circle Dies

I am hoping to have some sneaky peeks soon of demo samples for The Hobby House shows on Create and Craft this Friday 27 January at 10am and 4pm - watch this space :o)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
