Just Cute Bears

Morning All,
Hope you all had a great weekend. Weather was great here.
Todays gift bag is for the challenge at Just Cute Bears.
The challenge this week is for any kind of embossing. I have used a cuttlebug folder to emboss the white bazzill c/s. Put a hint of blue chalk over it. Image is from a Buzzcraft set, the bear essentials. Love this image as it has both of my faves, teddy and snowman.
Coloured with Distress inks on watercolour paper. Polar white flower soft on hat trim and bobble. Glitter for snow. Looks better IRL. Image mounted with Nestabilities. Sentiment is from a SU set. Ribbon is SU also.
Have a good week everyone and thanks so much for visiting and leaving any comments. I really appreciate it.

Hi Everyone. Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. Todays card is for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday.
The theme this week is 'Whateva'. The image I used is one of the very first stamps I bought way back when. It is a set by PSX. They are foam back stamps but very good quality images.
Colouring is with promarkers, CS is SU as is the paper. Flower from handmade paper with a TH die. Button from stash. Linen thread. Tag punch and wording is also SU. Nestie label die.
Had fun with this little image. Hope you are all having a good week and thanks for popping by.
