Double Blessing

This is the second card for Twins that I have done in the past month - how could you go past these adorable little bears. when my friend Chriss rang and needed some cards...I knew I would have to bring these adorable bears out...who can resist a cute bear!?!? I was also inspired by this weeks Inspiration Challenge on SCS and this adorable little bear.

It is also for the Stamp Something Challenge which is all about your favourite colour combinations - this has got to be a favourite - it is YUMBY (as my DH says!) ;

and for this weeks Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS, which is all about 'stepping out of the box' and this is very CAS for me!

This would have to be one of the quickest and easiest cards I have made, especially as I already had the bears stamped - they are from a box of stamps I was given by a lovely lady at the local markets - she stamped in the 80's....but bears never go out of style do they!!

I chalked the bears and layered them onto embossed CS which I had scalloped at the bottom, added some ribbon above the scallops, adhered this to the CS to which I had added some spotted CS and then added that cute sentiment, which has been layered into a pink circle!! If course everything in sight is sponged around the edges - it wouldn't be me if I didn't! LOL! So there you have it...one quick baby card - what do you think!?!

Thanks for stopping by and for your very kind comments, you bless me each time you come! Enjoy your weekend, we are going out to dinner tonight for my Mum and sister's final night - they fly off home to New Zealand tomorrow afternoon -I am already teary thinking about it - I am allergic to airports - they make my eyes leak!! I hope you have a great weekend - enjoy those you love...God bless you!


  1. Linda I just love these sweet bears! I have a single one that I think is the same line and I love it! It was one of the first stamps I ever bought... back in the 90's!!! Love the soft pink and love the fairly simple layout because it lets the stamps really shine! I'll be sending hugs and thinking of you as your mum and sis leave!!!!

  2. Oh my, how cute!!! Love this card and I sure can't get enough of your gorgeous coloring!!!! Linda, I thought your Mum and sister were staying for 4 weeks? So sorry they are leaving already. I know how it goes, those tears just make their own way when family leaves. I am just happy you guys had a wonderful time together. Maybe it won't be this long before they come and visit you again. Hugs and blessings my friend, Sabrina
