Karens Doodles UK 5th challenge



It's time for a new challenge at Karen's Doodles UK and this week we have a recipe for you - 1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments. Now I must admit I generally run a mile when I see a recipe challenge, they're really not my favourite things and usually my cards do not turn out well! So I'm pleasantly surprised with my card, I'm quite happy with it :o)

I've used this cute bear which was actually a freebie from Karen's Doodles, coloured with promarkers. The papers are from a My Mind's Eye pad that was free with a magazine, cardstock is coredinations. I used an inverted corner punch around the image. The flowers are a mix of Green Tara and Papermania, with Craftwork Cards card candy centres, sentiment is also from Craftwork Cards.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Well we're off for our little overnight trip soon, so I apologise if I don't get around all your blogs - we might have internet connection in the hotel later but otherwise I'll try to catch up when I get back tomorrow evening. We're off to Chester and will be spending tomorrow at the zoo, although I must admit I'm not feeling very enthusiastic today as my cold has really kicked in and I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself! Must pack the Lemsip :o)

Love this little bear Lisa. He looks really smart with his bunch of flowers and his little dungarees.

Hope you enjoyed the zoo. Don't think I've been to the zoo for a long time. Maybe Poppy would like it!
