Just one won't hurt....:)

Morning Peeps!!!
Its a beautiful sunny more here and Mo and his breakfast buddy are having lots of fun playing in the garden with action man and the paddling pool!!! so I thought I would get my Cuddly Buddly DT post of the week done while they are busy!!

yesterday I just couldn't resist having a play with this beautiful template by helen, its just adorable!!! and it was so lovely to make too. Everything you need comes in the download, all I added was the tim holtz vintage lace border, some raffia, some strips of acetate for my little stars to sit on and a little red jingley bell for the drawer pull.

There's a few piccies because I took 23 trying to get a good piccy of it!!! easel cards are hard at the best of times and the air was a little shade of blue in my craft room trying to get a good one for you I can tell you!!! romfl!!!!

I added a few dots of starburst stickles, berry red and marsh green promarker around the bear to add some chrimbley sparkle!!
Here's a little side view to try and show the layers of the decoupaged little bear and pressie's topper
 Its such a wonderful little template!! too cute and perfect for popping a special chrimbles pressie in. I was going to fill it with giant choccy buttons....only I ate them during the making so I filled it with some lovely red tissue paper instead...:) :)

Off to make some pack up for Mo now and sneak in a cuppa!!
thank you for popping in to see me!! 
huge hugs Lou xxxx
