So, what's on the bears' desk of plenty this Wednesday then? Well I'm playing with some super stash we won on Gill's birthday giveaway over at Stamping Lemons. What a wonderful prize it is too, thank you so much, Gill.
Just look at all the lovely patterned papers spread over the desk patiently waiting for me to create a card or 300. Note that Podgy has very kindly allowed me to use his special Ipaw docking station so I can listen to toons as I craft. I have our entire stock of border punches fitting neatly on the table, yes, all 3 of them! We may need to invest in a few more at some stage if Wilbear loosens the credit card strings!
I have the Woodware cutter ready for action of the cutting kind, the corner rounder, good old Mr. Stick of the Pritt variety, the kitchen sink.... Well okay not quite, but it is over the other side of the kitchen so it wasn't the biggest lie I ever told. ;)
We were so excited when the postbear dropped the winning envelope through our door, as you can see, we get our very own bear mail here, we informed the Post Office when we staged our blog coup that they should deliver anything to the bears as a priority, and they obviously know how very important we are, as this seemed to drop through the letter box before we'd even won it (well, almost)!!!
We all gathered on the bears' bed to peruse the contents of the prize package.
There are at least a squillion buttons in the bag, all in pastel colours, and, serendipitously, the goody bag bought for us by the cub the other week has matching ribbon in it!
I was so excited by our win that I jumped straight up to the desk to create some cards. Here's what I've made already...
This one has 3d elements cut from the patterned paper, they don't show up terribly well on the photo but they look pretty good in real life.
I used some of the yellow buttons for added interest to this card.
For the card below, I utilised a paw made flower that the cub made for us some time ago, it's sat in our stash ever since, but this was the perfect paper to use it on.
Anyway, I just have time for a small stack of sandwiches and a wodge of sausage roll before perusing more desks, in between card making with the new stash of course!
With love from the bears.
