Losing the Plot and Crafty Fairies Challenge...

What am I like??
I prepared this post a little while ago, ready for the latest Crafty Little Fairies Challenge.....
and completely forgot to put any wording in it!

So here I am to put that right!
This card was made using one of my very old Popcorn images which, as you can see has both a front and a back view.
Now those of you who know of Popcorn will know that he is traditionally brown, but I decided to go with a grey bear this time, to complement the lovely red papers which happened to come as a freebie in one of my magazines.
My card was made as a double fold, to make the most of those images and I also incorporated a bit of lacy punching too, to soften up those edges.
And the lovely bears have of course been coloured in with my Promarkers.
I hope you will come and join us at Crafty Little Fairies - you can find a link in my side bar. This is the revamped version of Lili's Little Fairies with the added bonus that you can now use any brand of stamp. We would  love to see what you come up with for our cute and cuddly critters challenge this week.

Finally - it wouldn't be a proper post if I didn't enter a few other challenges as well so here they are:

Thanks for stopping by today and I will try to remember to put my words in next time I post!!
