With Love From Me To You

Come closer.... no, closer than that....   I'm gonna whisper    ;-)   
The house is sold and we are moving on the 14th!!    EEK!
I am almost scared to tell anyone, incase I put a hex on it, but the contracts are all exchanged and I am packing like mad!!

I just had time to make one more card, before my final craft supplies are boxed up.


I found this fab set of stamps in my local craft shop for only a fiver... bargain!!
I kept my card really simple.
I know these 'Me to You' bears are usually grey, but I coloured mine brown for the Less Is More colour challenge.



She's coloured with Copics and the little dots are done with a white gel pen.
I really like the dotty background effect - but whenever I do it, it always looks a bit of a mess. So, I've taken to just adding the dots at a few places around the image and that seems to be working better for me. Some of the dots are done with a glitter pen, which is hard to capture, but is very sparkly IRL :o)

Challenges
Less is More - Brown and Pink
Winter Wonderland - Walking in a Winter Wonderland.
