Cutie anyone?

Hello blogworld

Oh dear Monday morning, again!, where is the year running off to - can anyone get it to stop, please!!!

On a brighter note Monday does mean it's a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies - with the challenge this time to use a doily somewhere on your entry.  Easy, eh!  Hopefully we won't stump you this time as we did for the last - Cream and Brown Christmas really didn't seem to be your cup of tea at all.

This challenge we are sponsored by the pure cuteness that is:

and there is a fab prize on offer.  The DT were very kindly allowed to pick an image to use and this is my creation.

Now before you go too far I would just like to say that I was experimenting with pinks when I coloured this (it's the only thing that disappoints me with Promarkers - the pinks, they could really do with more).  I also picked the wrong greys - so bearing that in mind, apart from that I quite like it!!!

Here you go, bet you don't see a pink bear all that often!! :

Apologies also for the very poor picture - I took it on a day when we had just buckets of rain and its' the first time I couldn't find enough light to get my light box to work!  Hence the view of my window in the background!!

I used:

Digi Stamp:
Pink Gem - Fairy Teddy
coloured with my Promarkers

Nestie for the image
Memory Box - simple picket fence

First Edition - Bird Song

Anything else?
The doily - of course! - and pom-pom trim: from my stuff
Craftwork cards - sentiment
Glamour dust on wings and stars

 Looking forward to seeing all your cutest projects for the new challenge.

Oh, before I go - another anecdote from SHMbO - we went Christmas shopping yesterday.  Wandered around a wild and windy Skegness for a couple of hours and by the time we'd been in a number of shops I'd had to get her to put things back quite a bit.  I said, each time, Emily it's coming up for Christmas - put it on your list and if you are a good girl Father Christmas might bring it for you.

Well she picked up another little toy and I started with the 'put it back' routine, but before I got a chance to finish madam puts it back and says' I know, put it on the list!' - what a little terror, eh!!

On that note, I'm off!


A challenge, or two:

Allsorts: Week 182 - Bring on the bling

Eclectic Ellapu: Challenge #7 - Celebration with sparkle

Hi Sarah, that pink bear is so cute & the pom pom trim is fab! I agree with you about the promarkers.....don't like the pinks much at all....other than that I love 'em! Am just trying Spectrum Noirs at moment but find they bleed bit too much.....oh, well....any excuse to practise colouring! Bet Little Miss is getting excited.....not too many more sleeps....happy days!
Hugs Jo x

Gorgeous little cutie... and i'm talking about the card not your daughter! LOL

There are certain promarker pinks that I go back to over and over.. I love blossom.. but you're right.. Copics have a bigger range!

This is gorgeous Sarah, I love that cute image and your colouring looks fabulous. That's really pretty paper too.
Another one here agreeing about the pink Promarkers, I find them hard to match to certain papers.

Super cute card Sarah - love that sweet image and fab die cuts.
I too agree about the pink PM's - and I think Santa might be bringing me Copics - but only if I'm a good girl though - what's the chances???
Enjoy your evening.

I love your pink bear Sarah, I understand your frustration with Promarkers I could do with about six more shades. Your design is gorgeous by the way!
