Popcorn the Bear

Good afternoon

Fridays is normally one of the days I work but I decided to take today off as annual leave and I am so glad I did because the weather is gorgeous here today. The sun is shining and the birds are singing ~ what more could a girl ask for lol!

Anyway after I had been to Tescos, done the washing and had a quick tidy up I decided to have a little play with my new Popcorn stamps. The new stamps are smaller than the previous ones and an ideal size for 6 x 6 cards. I couldn't decide which stamp to use because they are all so cute but in the end I couldn't resist this sweet little baby bear.

It is the first time I have ever stamped the sentiment onto the backing paper and to say I was a little nervous is a understatement.  I must have practised about 10 times on a scrap piece of paper but I eventually plucked up courage and I am so pleased I did because it stamped perfectly.

Beautiful card Lisa! Love sweet Popcorn baby. Sounds like you have had a nice day off. Enjoy your bbq and the rest of the weekend!

Hi Lisa, This is so lovely.
Don't be worried about stamping straight onto the card, after all if you make a mess of it, just stamp it on a seperate bit, matt it up and pop over the top..
Your little bear is so cute, you have made a grand job of it. Debbiexx

Donna said...

It's a really lovely card Lisa, and yes I think the flowers definitely add to it. I don't know, I find it hard to make a card nowadays without adding flowers......to me it just looks bare without them.
have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy the weather.
PS Thanks for stopping by my blog, can't wait to see your card with the new papers.

Your Popcorn Bear card is just so adorable! And I do think the flowers added the perfect touch. Lovely soft blues on this creation and the touch of off white flowers really makes it come to life!
