MAWTT Challenge 142 - 'Cute 'n' Cuddly'

Good Morning! Hope you are all having a good week! and hope you have managed to enjoy some of the sunshine while it lasts here in UK. I can't believe that it's Thursday again already and time for another wonderful challenge over at.....

Moving Along With The Times

The lovely Debs is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of

'Cute 'n' Cuddly'

So we would like to see your creations with something cute and cuddly on!! It doesn't have to be a card - it could be an altered item, gift box, tag etc, as long as it follows the theme and has something 'cute and cuddly' on it!! :-) 

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Di's Digis

and I have chosen one of Di's beautiful images called 'Special Just For You'. I think the bear is really 'cute 'n' cuddly' and perfect for this challenge!

The gorgeous paper is My Mind's Eye 'Howdy Doody' from My Crafty Heart. Ooh I do love this pad!! it's SO scrummy! Also from My Crafty Heart there are some little peach pearls inbetween the rosebuds, but not sure if you can see them in the photo. They are Hero Arts - 'Sunshine - Mixed Accents' - really pretty and in graduating sizes.

 I've used a Nellie Snellen Die for the border and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.

The beautiful lace and dragonfly charm were part of candy from the lovely Sussie and it's so gorgeous that I save it for special cards. The glittery centre flower is from Dies to Die For and the other lovely roses and rosebuds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

 Colouring: Promarkers:
Bear: Tan, Cinnamon
Grass/Leaves: Meadow Green, Apple
Oranges: Peach, Soft Peach
Yellows: Ivory, Tulip Yellow
Gold Stickes

The gold stickles look really pretty in real life but unfortunately they always look dreadful in photos! It looks like frog spawn!!!! LOL 

So hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the challenge and to check out the rest of the team's wonderful inspiration.... they are all beautiful and very cute 'n' cuddly!! :-)
