Good morning everyone, I am thrilled to have been asked to join the Paper Creator Design Team by the talented Debbie who creates the wonderful kits available here.
This card was a last minute rush for a friend to give to a new mum. The Blue Baby Bear Scales Ultimate Kit includes several papers as well as the baby bear images and co-coordinating bows.
We have a dull dreich wet morning here, I had planned to be in the garden today, as we were out yesterday, the strawberries are ripening nicely and some are ready to pick, at least I won't have to water the veg plot or the fruit trees.

This week's challenge "Landsacapes " was chosen by Lynn, the papers and image are from Ooh -la-la The Paula Oakley Collection, available here. I will probably put a sentiment a the bottom right corner when I send the card either as a thank you or for a birthday.
Please take the time to have a look at my teamies cards then enter the challenge with your own.

We have a few weddings coming up over the next few months, so I decided to use a Tonic die I've had for ages and never used and to cut into a 12x12 sheet of paper by EK Success, I wanted something a bit different but am not sure I'm totally convinced by the finished result.
Miserable dreich weather, dull and overcast all day today and the forecast indicates more of the same over the next few days. Thank you for all your kind comments on my last card.

Thank you for all of the lovely comments on my last cards I really enjoy reading them and appreciate the time you take to visit.
We have a miserable day here misty with very fine rain, I had hoped to finish planting some bulbs but that will have to wait.
Instead a Christmas card with a newly purchased Simply Print image from Lili of the Valley and a sentiment from them purchased last year, the papers were free with a magazine last year as well. The card will be added to the School bus box.
