Come and Meet Alfie Bear

Morning folks...let me introduce you to one of the cutest furriest little teddy bears ever...it's ALFIE BEAR from Craftwork Cards...I may be a little biased here being an avid Arctophile...the posh name for someone who collects teddy bears but I'm sure you'll agree he is so adorable...just look at that cheeky face...

I don't profess to be the best colourer in the world and I'm sure all you Promarker and Copics officiandos could do a much better job but I don't think I did too bad using the new Distress Markers...I like that the images are a decent size and can stand alone on a 5.1/2" square card without the need for lots of embellishing...so I decided to make up a little set of 8 Notecards which would be ideal to give as a gift to your non-crafty friends tied up with this gorgeous Candy Check Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl...
quick and easy to make if you sell cards at craft fairs and the images would look so cute framed for a baby's bedroom


there are 6 sets of ALFIE BEAR stamps to tempt you...
check them out HERE...will you be able to resist I wonder.
Today's going to be a play day with that other adorable character from Craftwork Cards...the ever so cute bunny rabbit who goes by the name of WARREN...so that's a date...Warren and I will see you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
