Because of my holiday, I had to miss the last challenge at CD Sundays but I'm back up to speed now and delighted to be able to join in again. The new challenge is "Bear with me" and I've used an image, backing paper and border from the Crafters Companion "Popcorn the Bear" CD - actually a mini-CD that was a Create and craft member freebie.
The image is supposed to be the base layer of a decoupage design, but I'm trying to make more of my Christmas cards fit through that magic slot at the Post Office that means you pay the small letter rate rather than the large letter one - last year almost all my cards had to be sent at the higher rate and the cost was crippling! So to add interest to the image, I brushed all the pine sprigs in the garland with clear Wink of Stella. I don't think it shows on the photo, but it looks lovely in real life!
The sentiment was a free download from a blog last year - I wish I'd kept a note of the name of the blogger so I could credit her. If you are reading this and happen to be - or know- her, can you please let me know so I can link to her blog and say thank you?
