Bears and Birthdays

It's been an old wet day today, and looking like much the same tomorrow so it mightn't be a bad day to be at work ;) ... though I've just remembered I haven't checked my Lottery numbers yet, so maybe all is not lost!
ETA, checked and it's back to work for me :(

This card is based on this week's featured stamper over at Splitcoast ... Here's Simone's original.  I used her lovely CAS layout and think I've used the same bling (from Taylored Expressions).  My bear is from Eat Cake Graphics:
4005-E Arthur Alooishus in his striped shirt
Coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.  Spectrum Noir sparkle added to his shirt.

My second card uses my first ever stamp I bought from Eat Cake Graphics ...
Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Silver sparkle added to the plate and then topped with clear gloss.
Dienamics wonky stitched circles die; not sure about make of tag.  I've also used some of my new DP from Taylored Expressions which I'm lovin!

  4. Great cards as usual Lynne, lovely colouring. Abigail should have come with me to the Cake International Show - there were plenty of cakes there!! You will have to get over to the NEC sometime - I think the November show has access to the cakes as well - you really only have to pay your flights (I watch out for a good offer and only bring hand luggage) and I got my show ticket with Tesco vouchers - so not too many pennies needed - just for what you buy of course!!

  5. Oh Lynne this is just too sweet!! I love your take on the inspiration card! so sorry you didn't win the lottery but maybe if you were rich you wouldn't be as sweet giggles! If you were rich no one would care if you were sweet though LOL they'd all wanna be your friend. : ) Have a great day despite the rain and work!

  8. Your cards are both wonderful. I really really love that bear. You have the most amazing collection of stamps from Eat Cake Graphics, always so wonderful to see. I love the look of this card too with the hand drawn border. Looks so good.

  9. Those images are so much fun - especially wide-eyed Abigail. Lovely coloring, too. Maybe you'll win the lottery next around. Hope you continue blogging if you do. I can only imagine the tools, embellishments and other crafty supplies you'd have then! LOL

  20. That was clever to make your card blank a polka dot one and leave a lot on unembellished space to fit in with the challenge. A gorgeous card with a cutie image. Thanks for sharing this with us at Less is More.
