Ice Skating Donny:


Good morning - it's looks like it will be a beautiful morning out there, but this afternoon, overnight, and tomorrow are supposed to be raining.  Not that it usually matters, but I have a deck to stain.  Oh well, guess that means more time in the craft room :)

I love bears.  It's true.  Actually any animal will do.  I feel comfortable colouring them and they are always such cuties.  I'm not 100% confident colouring little girl/boy images. I'm always off in the shading.

 Bears though, I think I can handle :)

With that said, I have Donny to share with you:

Did you notice that I love paper piecing too??  I guess it's my "thing".

Speaking of paper, I am letting go of my third last piece of cranberry coloured cardstock.  It's the only thing that goes with my "Christmas" flowers and I have a LOT of cranberry coloured flowers.  I hate to use so much of the cardstock on one card, but I like to tie everything together.  I should set out to find some more, if they make this colour anymore.
 


Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi, MME papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Gelly Roll white pen, Tim Holtz metal gasket, Wild Orchard flowers, Recollections pearls, Craftsmart Gold and Chocolate inks, Inkadinkadoo! background stamp, Ashland Burlap.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, Square Nesties, sewing machine, Making Memories edge distresser.




I made this card for the following challenges:  ABC Christmas - kept it safe (see above), Holly Jolly - six or more layers (I have 10 layers of paper), Christmas Challenges w Sketches - sketch (do not display sketch), Winter Wonderland - four legged friends.

Have a wonderful weekend - cheers to you all!
