Super adorable Coops! Love how you colored the bear to look fluffy! I'm always intimidated to color bears or animals because I'm at a loss on how to color their fur...lol. You did great though. Glad to hear you had a good craft fair too! :)

Hi Nic

Beautiful card, love the image and great colours

I have to cancel my table this weekend at the craft fair I am not well enough, and I only have tow more before Christmas, people are not spending but I find November craft fairs are better, so hopefully I will get to the next unfortunately I have to pay for the table this month which will eat into my craft money I have. Well done on selling some of your beautiful cards.
