Just Cute Bears #3 - Hearts

Sunday, 7 February 2010
I know, I've been MIA again. Same old excuse I'm afraid, work! We have been planning for last 18 months for a large amount of work that was coming our way and how we would cope. Well, it's hit us and I've got so much on now that I'm too tired when I get home to do anything else! Hopefully once we get into the swing of things more I'll be able to adjust. Please accept my apologies for my lack of blog hopping and commenting.

Anyway, it's time for another challenge at Just Cute Bears. Thank you to everyone who took part again. I know we've had some issues with Mr Linky in our first two weeks, but please bear with us. I've had so much fun visiting all our amazing entries, there are some very talented people out there.

Well, with Valentine's Day fast approaching, our challenge this week is to see Hearts on your project along with a cute teddy! It doesn't have to be a card, it can be an ATC, scrapbook layout, altered art etc, the only requirement is the little bear.

As I was a little short on time this week, I went for some Forever Friends decoupage that I'd picked up at the NEC last year. The red CS is from Stampin Up! and the backing paper is from the All Loved Up Forever Friends paper pad. I have also used my MS Valentine Lace punch and Love Language CB Folder.

Tools: Love Language CB Folder, MS Valentine Lace Punch, Heart Gems - Stash

I thought I would do a bit of an "arty" shot to show the decoupage layers.

As always, we have a fantastic prize from Cuddly Buddly for the winner of this weeks challenge. Pop over to Just Cute Bears to find out more and to see the rest of the DT's amazing work!

I do hope you will join us and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    I love this the layers and papers work really well together...The use of only a few colours means this card has a good balance and helps focus the key parts, keep up the outstanding work take care and happy crafting. Oh and mr linkys on the blinkies.
