Better late than never

Oh my gosh..

We had such a roller coaster of a week last week.. started on Monday when  LITTLE SCUMBAG  (I have worse words but don't want to blog them lol) mugged me at 4.15pm on a busy street!!! Nightmare!! I got away lightly.. a phone and money so I am thanking my lucky stars really... but it really shook me up

But then we ended the week on a high as we had a social worker visit and it looks like we are being matched with a little girl!! After 2 years of questions and visits it has all paid off!!!whoop whoop... still a long way to go but it is happening!!

So I missed this weeks CES card so I made one now.. lol.. the theme is to make a card featuring a bear!!

So here it is:

This is a LOTV bear
The papers are first edition
The seam binding and button is from sew sweet

I am entering this into:

DYSU - Ribbon

Totally papercrafts - let it snow

One stop crafts - let it snow

The pretty little ribbon - Christmas with a bow

And it's also my turn to post some Inky inspiration and so I had a go at making a candle

Isn't she the cutest!!

I am entering this into:

Simon says stamp - anything goes

Paper shelter - anything goes

Thanks for looking xx
