CES DT Card & Challenges

Hello everyone, another saturday and a little warmer. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the CES Challenge Blog. Kaylou has set the challenge and she has gone with the theme Cute & Cuddly. I don't usually do mens cards, find them really hard as I love my embellishments but been wanting to colour my Popcorn Bear from Crafters Companion for ages now and this fitted in perfectly with this weeks theme. Its not my favourite card but I'm not a bear person so something different. I've taken a few photo's as the light is really bad atm and I hate posting rubbish shots. Role on spring!!!!
I have coloured him with Copics and Prisma Pencils. The papers are HOTP - School and the Ribbon are both available from Crafty Emma's Store. She has had lots of new goodies added and loads of scrummy papers so pop on over and take a look for yourself.

Here are a few challenges that my card fits into;

Totally Papercrafts - Clean & Simple
Crafty Creations - Three Little Words
Scrap Creations - Animal Antics

I'll be back later today with my Sweet Stampin DT Card. Couldn't get it to upload all the piccies in one go, so I'll add this later today as need to take Zoe for her swimming lesson shortly.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and all the lovely comments about my blue hair in the card below. Made and nice change to try something different, maybe I'll try this again soon. After all there are no rules and each to there own aye!!
