Bear Hugz

Hello.  Welcome.  Tomorrow they have forecast bad weather.  Also the electricity company is going to be doing essential maintenance which means we will be without power for hours.  No heat, no light, no internet.  Arrrgggg.  I did think I would catch up with some crafting but if it's a gloomy day that may be a challenge as well.  I suppose I must just wait and see.  I am sure there are plenty of things to do that don't require electricity.........

Cheery Lynn have moved their challenge to a Thursday and I must admit it's hard to get my head around.  I was thinking I'd missed it but luckily, they have also made it two weekly, so there is still time to join the Tickled Pink challenge.  

I have used Cheery Lynn's Koala Ken and Oval Celtic Frame.   I cut Koala Ken from black and hot pink card.  I swapped the bits and decided to use the dark version.  I still have his alter ego to use on another project.  I backed the frame with pink mulberry paper.  I cut the frame again to give the aperture in pink Bazzill card and stamped Stamplorations Big Numbers Background with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I smudged the ink to highlight the texture of the card.

I stamped a sentiment from Stamplorations Country Rustic and added some strips of embroidered ribbon.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
