Bearly Mine Designs Cards and Just Magnolia Challenge!

Hello :)

I've not done a lot of blogging of late, and finding it hard to juggle life and my hobby, when I go back to work, trying to juggle will become even harder!

Before I go onto my cards ...

I'd like to wish Kim a Happy Birthday for tomorrow. My DT buddie at La-La Land Crafts.
Kim has the cutest creations around and her blog always brings a smile to my face. She also recently won a contest - She drew a 'Sprout' design for Thre Greetings Farm to which they are going to make up her drawing into a stamp. You can find her winning design here! Go Visit her blog and see what I mean - Oh, and wish her a Happy Birthday when you get there :)

I've had a play around with some christmas cards, and came up with these little cuties!!

The Bears are a freebie with a magazine which name escapes me at the moment, it was out last month!

Backing papers are Bearly Mine Designs and are from Designer Extreme Vol III!
Donna has a range of backing paper discs and insert discs, all of which can be found here!

Here is a little close up of the bears
These are examples of the cards, the same image has been used, but the reverse colour for the other four cards :D
Thanks for looking!


This week is Just Magnolias 26th week, the very talented Mina has come up with this fabulous sketch which I found was very easy to work with...

I saw somewhere in blog land that Magnolia were releasing their Halloween Collection, so I had to have some! This little cutie is called Witch Tilda with Small Pumpkins (I think lol)

A little close up of her
My flowers :D A girl has to have flowers!!!
I have used papers from Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme Vol III again. Disc three is full of papers for all occasions!
I coloured her using my Copics, and gave her a little shadowing around the bottom. I have used flowers and ribbon from my stash, the Spider at the top is a 'cake topper' which I found lying around, and the little 'Bat Stamp' in the opposite corner is from BoBunny. The Pumpkin Deco Pin is from Making Memories.

Thank you for looking :)
