Bear Hugs...

Good morning sweet stampers and my scheduled post...not because I have having a lie in but because I am off to the Sincerely Yours craft show at Ingliston....mmm I wonder what I will buy?? I might need to avoid the stand that sells the lovely dies after the grief I gave them for not sending my online order ...only took them 4 weeks and 3 days to refund me!!  

Todays challenge over at Sweet Stampin is buttons, bows and polka dots...

We are sponsored this week by Crafty ribbons who are giving one lucky winner a pack of ribbon...


our monthly sponsor is The ribbon Girl...
So...I am loving these new papers from Fancy Pants - Park Bench collection...they are just so yummy and just my kind of colours!! I love blue and yellow, blue and green or blue and orang together...  I layered them onto kraft card. The stamp is Bear Hug from Belles and whistles which I coloured with copics. The flower has been cut using my mini hybrid rolled rose die, I added a wee ribbon bow with a button attached and then some pearls, sequins and doodles to finish.

All hot and bothered from reading the previous post! Quickies came in little blue tins did they not!!!!
This is a fabulous layout. Love how you have turned the square into a diamond on the page. Nifty idea.
Hope you had a lovely time at the show and didn't spend all your pennies up.
Hugs Mrs A.
