Cuthbert Bear by Pollycraft and great news!

Firstly I must apologise - I have been neglecting my card making the last few days.  The glorious sunshine has come first, I am trying to catch as many rays as I can before its' gone again.  I have managed to make a card today though.

Before I talk about the card, here's my good news.  My Tilda tin was picked as this week's Creative Cottage favourite.  When I was looking at the new challenge I thought "why on earth is my picture on their blog?" and then I realised that I was this week's favourite.  To say I was pleased was an understatement and I didn't waste a second in getting my blinkie on the sidebar!  Then, it get's even better, the other challenge that I entered the Tilda tin in came up trumps too.  I won 2 Whiff of Joy stamps in the Passion for Promarkers anniversary draw!  That has really made my week - and I just love the WoJ stamps soooo much!!!

Okay, back to the card ..... here's Cuthbert with a big bunch of flowers.  He is from Pollycraft and is coloured with Pro markers.  The gingham paper was from a cheap pad I've had ages.  The other papers are Nana's Nursery from DCWV.  I've used some punches from my stash and card candy centres for the flowers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Charizma cards - flowers
Just Cute Bears - Thank you card
Crafty Card Makers - Least and most favourite colours.   My most favourite card making colour at the moment has to be orange, you'll see it in lots of my cards.  My least favourite colour is green, don't know why, I suppose it is because it is not really a girly colour, and I like girly colours!
The Pixie Cottage - I have used their fab sketch:

I promise I'll try and get a bit more crafting done tomorrow - and I know that it is about time I finished making another teddy bear.

Thanks for stopping by - visit again soon!
