Furry Friends Challenge

The clock is ticking...  not only to tell me that Sunday is over and evening is beginning, but I only have three more days until I officially start First Place 4 Health.  I have conflicting emotions over this.  I WANT to eat cake (thanks to Mandy and Liz lol!) but I NEED to get this extra baggage off my body!!!  Ho hum.  I need to find a widget for my weight loss count down.  Anybody have a good one?

My card today is for Paper Romance Challenge (which started on Thursday).  My sweet teamie Angela has given us the challenge of "Furry Friends."  I'm so glad that she decided on using animals on our cards this week 'cuz that's exactly what I had lol!

Here's Night Time Bear by Melissa Jenkins.  Isn't he sweet?  I wanna pick him up and cuddle him lol!  I'm entering this card at Just Cute Bears Challenge - Let's Go Dotty.

He's colored with copics.  I'm sorry I didn't keep track of the browns I used... the blues are:  B97 B95 B93 B91; reds - R22 R20; yellows - YR24 Y15 Y13 Y11.  His ball of fluff at the end of his hat is covered with sparkly fluff.

Papers are 7 gypsies savannah collection.  I recolored the ribbon using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added a metal slide.  I tried to make this 'male approved' lol!  You know how hard it is to embellish male cards (at least for me).  The sentiment stamp says, 'dear FRIEND' but I chopped off the dear part and used only the FRIEND.  Is it OK to use a heart on a guy card?  I figured it was sorta like an animal head mounted on the wall... you know what I mean?  The ones with the really big antlers or horns?  Well, this is a big ol' bear paw - arghhhhhh!  hee hee...

You still have time to enter this week's Furry Friends challenge at Paper Romance Challenge Blog.  You might be the winner of a $5.00 Gift Certificate to Paper Romance!!!  If you upload to an online gallery, please use the keyword prc14.
