Just Cute Bears - Happy Father's Day

This week's Just Cute Bears Challenge is to make a card for:

'Father's Day'

I've used yet another Lili of the Valley 'Busy Bear' on this card - I just can't help myself...they're soooo sweet! This one is called 'In the Shed'...perfect for those men in your life! lol The papers are from the 'Bloom & Grow' pad by My Mind's Eye, the raffia lace is from Hobbycraft, and if you look really closely, you might just be able to make the handwritten sentiment on the sign on the image.


 I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:
You can check out the fabulous cards by my lovely teamies, and our guest designer for June Cherie, on the Just Cute Bears Challenge blog.

Helen, what a wonderful job and that image is so cute!! I love your papers and details. I'm so happy some of the uploads are the more CAS version of the sketch. It breaks things up a bit and allows more people to play! I also think it makes your adorable image stand out!! Thanks so much for joining us in the Midnight Madness Sketch this week and hope you can play again next week!
