Good morning was a real killer with the alarm going off so early this morning...I haven't had to get up at dark o'clock for nearly two weeks and I can feel that this week is going to be a long one lol!

This weeks sponsor is one of our regulars...Simon Says Stamp and they are offering the lucky winner a $20 gift voucher to spend on-line plus free shipping...great prize me thinks...I only wish I was able to be in with a chance of winning lol! is how I made my card...

Design Papers : Cuddly Buddly (Patchwork of Papers Pink)
Digi image : Soft Pencil (Happy Teddy Bear)
Pink Card Stock : SU!
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellishments : Gems, Ribbon, Flowers and Button from my craft box

Good luck to anyone else who is returning to work today for the first time since the Christmas holidays started...I know my blogging buddy Mandy is going back to today so we can all commiserate together lol!

Hi Donna,
This is beautiful, the image has really made me smile, the name of the image "Happy Bear" is very apt. I love the little beads on her dress and the fab flower.
Have a great week,

*laughing* I love that "dark o'clock"...I was up early too but still not working... :( sure something will come around and I can happily wish I was able to craft all day again...I love this card, Donna. The bear is so sweet and I love teddy bears all dressed in pink. Those little goodies on her dress - what a neat idea! Donna, your flowers amaze me - I love it! This really looks fantastic! The cute bow is such a nice touch to those pretty papers - you're so good at this! ;D
