Just Cute Bears 'Celebration'

You may interpret this however you wish. We just ask that you leave a direct link to your NEW creation with your bear image on it.

We have this fabulous stamp on offer this week kindly donated by

Cuddly Buddly Crafts
I used a Cuddly Buddly stamp for my card 'Teddy Cheers" coloured with prisma pencils, think i have made the bears a little darker than normal, may be they have been on their holidays lol..

I think this would make a lovely wedding card or engagement, there are so many different occasions you could use this stamp for.

I have to admit i did leave making my card until the last minute, then panicked a little last night when things wouldn't go right for me (that will teach me)
