365 Cards Day 78

Had a pretty stressful week with the whole Grandad and hospital situation and have had very little free time, certainly none to make cards unfortunately. I NEEDED to chillout and have some 'me' time today and I have managed to make a couple of cards whilst catching up on my favourite TV programmes like Bones, Cold Case and Fringe.

This card was made using the sketch which was posted as todays challenge for Day 78 over at 365 Cards (boy I am so behind on their challenges now, boo hoo!)

I got a cute booklet full of papers and embellishments with Crafts Beautiful magazine all with Paddington Bear on which I cracked open for this card. I used to love PB when I was a kid, I even used to eat marmalade sandwiches and used to shuffle round like Paddington used to do. LOL

All the elements and paper ribbon are from this pack. I mounted the PB picture on black card and the little cakes are on 3D foam. The corner is from a Brenda Pinnick kit at QVC which was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and inked with a black pad. The card front was layered onto a black DCWV textured card blank.

PB is so cute. We did not have him here in the US much for my kids (or for me) but I do know who he is!

Hope grand-dad is better!
