Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge No 56 - Bears

Hello Everyone

Monday morning already! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I've had a pretty good one - other half working away in Newcastle so I had plenty of time to spend in Crafty Corner - although also did have to make time for some housework!

Today sees the start of the new Fortnightly Challenge at the Forever Friends Challenge Blog and our theme this time is .......Bears! This challenge is sponsored by:-


For full details on the prizes on offer and to join in the challenge pop over to the Forever Friends Challenge Blog.

Here is my card using the Shamrock Theodore bear from Bugaboo:-

I couldn't decide if the card looked better with or without the greeting so I've posted a photo of both - you decide! Thought this card could be used for either St. Patrick's Day or as a Good Luck Card.

Hope you like it and don't forget to come and join in the challenge at Forever Friends.
