  16. This is terrific, Glenda! Love your background paper and the way you used both Cuddle Bear and the Lively Leaves is fabulous. Did you merge those before printing or fussy cut them? I have to learn how you did it. It's perfect!

  30. Glenda, this is one adorable card!!! Love your merging of the two images! That sweet bear looks like he is have a ball playing in the leaves. So cute!!


  31. This is a great Fall card but would also look fabulous as a birthday card for a little boy. I love the design papers you chose to compliment that cute little image.

    Thanks for the kind comments tonight. I only have 2 more stamped images coloured. Not "coloured" by your stamping standards but coloured never the less...I am finding that although I can sit and get some cards made, I can't seem to sit and bend my head enough to colour. I think I need something like a drafting table or better yet a sort of portable tilted table that hold a 12x12 sheet of cardstock (layouts) or a card with room to rest your wrists etc while you colour. I do have a very talented son-in-law that I sill have to ask to make this.
    So in the meantime, I will have to stretch out my posts with filler cards in between those last two images. I am hoping to have a really good day where I could maybe get 2 more coloured.

  32. This is great! Love the cute teddy and the fall colors and papers are just womderful! Thanks for joining us at Can You Digi It?

  33. Hi Glenda, just catching up after my hols! What a gorgeous card, you have captured the Autumnal feeling beautifully! Gorgeous design and image, just love it!! Hugs Susan x

  35. So cute and adorable! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation with us at TTCRD!
