Why I Love This Stamp...

Hi all! Hope you are all well?
Today's card is a card I made just because I felt like it.
It fits the following challenges though;
papertake weekly Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed & Something Blue (I used blue)
Allsorts challenge. Primary Colours
Just cute bears for a 'bear plus someone else'.
.
This has to be my all time time favourite Sugar Nellie stamp. I could make card after card with it and never get bored. It's called 'Worried', is by Kathy Hare, and can be found here at Funky Kits.
.
Just look at this pair! How adorable! I have used Promarkers, chalk and Memento inks to colour them.
If you are after some Promarkers, Janet at Pink Gem Designs has a fabulous offer of 10% off the full range at the moment!


The gorgeous papers are Basic Grey 'Oliver'. I love it when I find 'male' papers that I actually like!

I have also used;

Martha Stewart zig zag punch,
Crafts Too stars embossing folder (though most of the embossing is now hidden beneath ribbon and flowers!),
Nestabilities Labels 1,
Papermania Relations stamps,
Ribbons, flowers, buttons, twine, charm.



Now I'll show you just why I love this stamp so much.....


.....because it reminds me of my youngest son Ben!



Many thanks for stopping by! Can I also thank and say 'hello to all of my new followers. I was on 200 last time I looked!! Thank you so much. You may have to bear with me with the school hols and all, but I will get around to visiting you all asap...promise!
