Just Cute Bears & Friends Design Team Card

 Sunday again my the weeks are just flying by just now. Only 47 Days until the guy in the Big Red Suit visits yeahhh!

Today we have another fab challenge for you to play along with over on

It's a colour them challenge for you this time of

WEll you know me guys one of my favourite colours is RED so it had to be RED

I love this Penny Black hedgie called Poppy Fields. At my recent visit to the SECC I stopped by Butterfly Kisses stand to see if they had this stamp as I am desperate for it. (My friend Linda *waving at ya let me stamp these ages ago mwah) Anyway so politely I asked at the BK stand if they had this stamp as I couldn't see it among the others. I was asked are you sure its a Penny Black stamp I replied yes. "Do you have the stamp number of it" I was asked . "Unfortunately I havent brought it with me" I replied. To my SHOCK I was told " I've never heard of it." The lady then left me..... no more conversation and started talking to the other lady on the stand and asked her. "Well in all the years I've been working with Penny Blacks I've never heard of a  stamp like it" was her reply. The woman standing next to me couldn't believe her ears either she took one look at my face and walked off think she thought i ws going to explode. They really were quite rude talking about me as if I wasn't there. So I about turned and bought nothing. I don't do rude and my money was spent elsewhere. It doesn't cost anything to be nice but its costs you if you are not.

Anyway peeps sorry for my rant back to my card....coloured using prismacolour pencils.

I have used a Nellies multi-die and cut it out using SU black. 
The red gingham paper is by Cuddly Buddly. The sentiment is by Stampin Up. 
The flower was made by SU Demo Emma Crocket at the SECC when she demoed how to make them for me Thanks Emma.
Please drop by my fellow teamies blogs and leavve them some love.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh I love this Ali! I adore this image and think I need this stamp too, the woman at the stand evidently wasn't a very big PB fan and sooo rude! Anyway, a gorgeous card, love everything on there! :)

Gorgeous card Ali, I think it's beautiful! I can't believe how they spoke to you, in fact, I'm glad that I avoided BK at the NEC yesterday! I usually go to Simply Stamps if they're at a show, or J & C Creations as they always have deals on PB stamps. They don't have any wooden ones on line at the moment, just the clear packs, but if you make it to the SECC next year, they are definitely worth a visit.
Sorry for the waffle!

Gorgeous card Ali. I love that PB image, I've had mine for ages but I can't remember where I got it. Just say if you want any images stamped. Glad you didn't buy any stamps from these rude people, I think that stamp is quite well known, I'm sure I've seen it on other people's cards lots. Love that flower! We didn't get to the Stampin Up! stand as it was busy any time we were near it.

this is a gorgeous card Ali - and beautifully coloured and put together. Such an adorable hedgie image, very recognisable as Penny Black! and that bloom is just stunning.
