Birthday bears

Hello lovely people,

Oh dear, this week is disappearing in a flash and I totally forgot to do my post this morning for the new challenge at As You Like It - I am feeling so ditsy right now!

Ok, let's get on with it and our theme this time is...

(and don't forget to explain why it is your favourite!)

We are sponsored by Sweet Pea Stamps

If you have spent any time on my blog you will know how much I love all things furry, especially bears...they just have that cute and cuddly factor :-)

My fave bears at the moment are the Happy Bears from LOTV and I just love colouring them...with a few touches of sparkle of course!

The papers I used are actually from 2 different LOTV pads and they go together so beautifully, plus I am really loving this colour combo right now.
