My First Karen's Doodles US DT Card!




Happy Monday to you... Happy Monday to you...  Be honest now, did you or did you not start singing the tune to 'Happy Birthday'?  Hee hee!  Gotcha : )  Did you have a nice weekend?  I was able to get some things accomplished - yay!  And my DH and I went to an ice cream party - yummmmyyyy.  I had so much sugar that I'm still up past 2 AM.  Shhhhh don't tell - I'm supposed to be in bed no later than 1:30 and I'm trying to get to bed a little earlier each week.  Sigh...  Oh well.  I'll just start all over again!

I have a fun card for ya today.  This is Flower Bear by Karen's Doodles.  You can purchase him by clicking on the link.  Karen has a fabulous variety of waaaaaaaay cute images.  The only problem you'll have is deciding which one to buy!
Today begins a new challenge.  Are you as excited as I am?  You can find the US Challenge Blog Here.  You'll find the sketch for the week as well as PRIZES!  Yes... I said PRIZES!  What can you win? 
  • Winner- 1 Digi stamp that you design and get to name and 2 digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
  • 2nd Place - 2 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
  • 3rd Place - 1 Digi stamp of your choice from Karen's Doodles
Isn't Karen the best?  Thank you, Karen : )

I have colored this cutie with copics.  Here's a close up so you can see the Diamond Glaze... I put it on his eyes, nose and orange flowers
The blue roses are from Mandy's candy I won a while back (they've been coming in very handy!)  Thanks again, Mandy : )  The lace and flower spacer is from Lacey at Stamp and Create.  I know that she also has more gorgeous lace in.  Go check out her store!


And here is a close up for the 'bead' challenge cause they are kinda hard to find..  I put a few in the center of the cream flowers and then a couple are down at the bottom of the card under the blue rose.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - beads
Papertake Weekly - Brads n bling
Crafty Calendar - flowers
C.R.A.F.T. - Mother's Day/Flowers

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to see you again real soon!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
