Just Cute Bears Challenge #27

Well we have tidied up the garden today and got some more stuff ready to take to the tip......yeah!    We are basically preparing to put the house on the market in the new year so the big clear out has already started.  I think the craft room clear out will be one of the last things on the list :).

I have made this card for the Bear Necessities challenge over at Just Cute Bears this week.  They are looking for clean and simple cards this week and I think this would fits the bill.

Forever Friends stamped image coloured with Copics.
Embossed white card for background.  I have inked round the edges of all the cardstock with versamark Gold ink. 
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Ribbon - From stash.

Enjoy whats left of the weekend.
Thanks for looking.

A Couple more Quick Cards

I made these yesterday too and not a stamp in sight.  I think its hard sometimes to make cards using different techniques so thought I would try and make some quick cards using some of the embellishments etc that I have.
I never thought I would enjoy stamnping as much as I do but now virtually ever card has a stamnped and coloured image and sometimes they can be quite time consuming.
The following two cards have been made using Forever Friends stickers.
Backing papers are Forever Friends for Him and DCWV.  
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I'm off to do the ironing before we go and visit my parents for the day.
