It Takes Two!

Hi there! We're half way through the week already! Woo hoo! Wednesday's may be a bit hectic, what with Brownies and Guides, but I'm nearly always happy on a Wednesday! The weekend is just around the corner now! I know I shouldn't wish my life away, but there just aren't enough hours during the day to work and craft!! Hee, hee!

Today's post is dedicated to one of my favourite weekly challenges - The Creative Cottage. This week's challenge is called "it takes two" and to enter we need to produce a card and a matching item.

You'll see that I went for the easy option...a card and matching gift tag! The DT ladies have been much more creative, take a peek here to set their gorgeous sets!

I've used Creative Cottage papers for both my card and the gift tag, in fact this was the freebie from May. I love this cute little bear, he's soooo sweet! I also love the green and yellow colour combo, it's fresh and zingy and looks fab with the grey bear.

I added the sentiments on my computer using text boxes before printing out the digi images. In hindsite I wish I'd printed the image for the card a little smaller because it didn't leave me much room to add any other embellishment to the card! Still, he's so cute he deserves to be centre of attention!

I made the gift tag out of yellow card and more of the Creative Cottage paper, this time I used a much smaller digi image and I changed the sentiment.

I punched a hole in the tag and added some lovely green ribbon from my stash.

I hope you're having a good week and hope you stop by again soon.
