I had a showcase

Hello Everyone,

Today...for me Saturday morning, and what a glorious morning it is.
A tad chilly, with a light frost, but now the sun is streaming in my front glass doors[ranchslider]
and it's going to be a little ripper....

I had a real buzz the other day while hopping around everyone blogs...came up to Spyders [Lyn] blog  and there was my card....s....I was so thrilled that she spied my cards, as I had used her own images that she gave as freebies to make the cards.

My scarecrow and spooky house card and my Panda pirate card...showcased...Whoo hoo..AND because Lyn had spied them, I was able to choose two images of my own choice.

So there you go...I got to work last night and made this cute card using my first pick Posie Bear  and the choice was a hard one as Lyn has some gorgeous images to pick from......

There he and my Bears....I love them more than chickens I think.

And a little close up of image.....

I've coloured with Faber Castell pencils and blended with Archival oil, added Autumn coloured stones in the centres of the flowers....gorgeous ribbon from my door hanger??
Papers from Graphic 45 Steampunk Collection [last bit]..then I messed up the was a scallop Doily  from Bo Bunny -a gift of love.. but too big, so I cut it in half, then DUH!!! glued the halves onto the wroung side of the card and covered the papers up and you cant see the scallop shape....Thats what you get for rushing.

Never mind the wee Bear is there and he's my pride and joy.

I can fit this card into a few challenges today so here goes.

Ready-Teddy-go  [Autumn Colours]

By the Cute and Girly  [All things bright and beautiful]

Stamp Something  [Get your digi on] this is their last challenge, which is very sad.

Right...I think I've done everything..

Have a lovely day.....or a good nights sleep......will catch up again soon.

Thankyou all for the wonderful comments you leave...I had a slow mojo the other day, could not think of a thing to do, so I went to my own blog and read every message I have had in the last couple of weeks...such fun, as you can see the pic of your friend and then read the message, really nice.
