JUST CUTE BEARS and ONE STOP CARD CHALLENGE....'s Sunday again which means it's time for another challenge over at JUST CUTE BEARS,this week our theme is "MONOCHROME" favourite colour combo black and white!
or you can use shades of one colour....
We have some sad news...Ali who runs the challenge as stepped down from her post and blogging for awhile (not too long i hope),but Cathy one of the DT as come to the rescue and taken up the the challenge will still run...thanks Cathy!'re a star.
I've gone for another fun card this week...seeing as how it's Fathers Day...unfortunately neither my dad or FIL are no longer with us...and this wouldn't have been a card suitable for either this ones for all the dads out there....."ENJOY YOUR DAY"

The image is Crafters Companion Popcorn the bear from the "I Love You" stamp set,i stamped him using Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed him with a clear detail embossing powder.I then cut him out using a round nestie...he is actually stuck on the inside of the card as you can see in the above photo...with a apeture cut into the front of the card directly over him.The frame around the apeture was also cut with two of the Pinking circles dies by Spellbinders.

The gingham papers are from Joanna Sheen...i so love gingham!The sentiment was done using rub-ons and the heart is a silver peel-off i coloured with a black Copic marker.I've added a couple of small kisses under the dad...because to be honest i'd got a little mark that i needed to cover this was the option i came up with.....couldn't think what else i could do.
The corners were punched using a Ek Success corner punch and a tiny circle punch for the little gingham circles.
I'm also entering this card in this weeks ONE STOP CRAFT CHALLENGE....where this week the theme is "ONE FOR THE BOYS"...
Well if you're still with me and not yawning your head off..all that's left to say is for those that joined us last week on Just Cute Bears...many thanks,you made some gorgeous creations and i hope you'll join us again this week...i look forward to visiting your blogs!
Take care all...and have a fabby Fathers Day Sunday!
