Let's hear it for SPRING

10 degrees this morning!  In all fairness, the cold helps kill bugs, weeds and set bulbs to ready our garden for Spring.  It's also been documented that there are less fights and verbal aggression in the winter than the summer.

Moving on....I was thrilled to be the random winner of some QKR images in challenge #126. The theme for QKR Challenge #127 is "critters".  I'm using digi 24186 "YaY'.  I'm also entering Cut It Up Challenge #65 - Exotic Animals.  I used the lovely La La Land die cut scallop border. I hope this is enough.

I cased my friend Deloris with her colors and sketch.  I love working with yellow but finding the right shades of yellows has always been challenging.

5x5, stitching, metal element, copics and paper pierced denim for pants. ribbon, La La Land scallop border die.

I made several of these and will make a sentiment when needed

  5. Well aren't you just a busy little beaver?! Well, could it be that people are inside more in winter and have less contact with others as compared to summer? Therefore, less exposure to others, less aggression, less fights? Anyway, these bears with their bellies showing are too cute! Congrats on your win. It's always so fun to get free stuff. Perfect coloring BTW and nice use of metal.

  6. This is so cute Cely. I love QKR...next to Laurie's images, they're my second favorite digis.

  7. I do love that bear, and your colouring is beautiful :o)
