Elzybells bear

Here's a card I made at the weekend - it's one that my mum asked me for, for my step-sister's boyfriend who's a mechanic...



It's more or less A5 sized, although I did make it slightly wider and slightly less tall, just because I prefer it that way.  The little mechanic bear is from Elzybells (no longer trading), coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are digi ones from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card.  Sentiment is computer generated, the '21' was cut with sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies.  Corners cut with a Whimsy die, black pearls from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

It's soooo hot this evening, you'd never know we had thunder storms all afternoon!  It's bright sunshine now and the boys are still playing outside... must drag them in for a bath soon though.  Ooh and Andy Murray's through to the 3rd round at Wimbledon, so far so good!  Hope you all have a lovely evening, will be round to do some commenting later :o)

Love this bear hun (I have him tucked away somewhere) and your colourwork on him is fabulous. Great male card. We were supposed to have storms today but not one to be seen and it is still hot and sultry. It'll probably wait until I'm sound asleep! Hugs Sxx

Hi Lisa, I'm sorry I've not been by for so long - pressures of real life has meant very little time for creating or blogging.

Gorgeous cards since I was here last - love them all, the bear is awful cute!

Good to hear you are feeling better as well and hope you have a good weekend.
