Just for fun!

Here are a couple of cards I made this week. The above card used a lovely image sent to me from Stacey. I don't usually do floral cards but I am pleased with the result.I used Papermania paper & ribbon and Prima flowers & jewels to embellish. I coloured the image with Promarkers,I think I am slowly improving with them lol!!!!!
This is the first time I have used this teddy stamp by Sugar Nellie, he was nice to colour in. I kept this one simple with stamped corners and a prima flower and peel off greeting. I hope you all have a nice weekend. We are not doing much which is lovely for a change,hope to get out for a nice walk and do a couple of challenge cards.
Happy Crafting
