I had a lovely handmade Christmas card from Colleen, who is a faithful visitor to my blog, and she had put all sorts of lovely little crafty goodies in the envelope, including some stamped images, which always makes my eyes light up.
One of them was this sweetly old fashioned looking little bear, and I thought it would make a slightly different card to welcome a new baby girl.
All the papers are by DCWV Linen Closet ( I love this stack), hearts border punch by Martha Stewart, I don't know who made the rubber stamp of course, and the sentiment is also an anonymous one I've had for years
Fur - sandstone, caramel and tan, soft peach to cheeks and ears
soles - dusky pink and pastel pink
clothes - powder blue and pastel blue, white pinafore shadowed with ice grey 1 on the folds
sunflower - buttercup, leaf green and tan
image shadowed in pastel blue
highlights done with white Signo rollerball pen
I inked the white circle with Distress ink - antique linen
Sentiment stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink
You may remember that some time ago I did a poll to see how you all felt about advertisments on blogs? You didn't seem to mind, so I have finally got around to it in case you were wondering where they came from. I have no idea how it works I will look at it all again in three months. In the meantime, I was amused to see that Google obviously send out some sort of trawl thing to look at the content of the blog so that the advertisments are relevant. Well the trawler thingy picked up on the blog party, and the first advertisments were all inviting you to WIN...something or another. The only exception to this, was an ad for a party firm which promises to provide all your theme party needs, what a pity, if I'd known earlier I could have decked us all out in diva outfits. I suppose as time goes on and the trawly thing and me make friends, that crafting stuff will appear
Talking of the you-know-what, you still have time to enter all the competitions, so get cracking so that you don't miss the boat
See you tomorrow
