Well lovely Bloggers, it's that time of year again - one hour less to sleep in this morning, but on the plus side, have you seen all the fabulous Cherry Blossom trees in flower - don't you just love them?

So - onto this week's Challenge at Sentimental Sundays which is an easy-peasy theme of CUTE AND CUDDLY (with a sentiment of course). More prizes to be won this week, and more freebie sentiments.

For my DT card I have used this oh-so-cuddly image from Meljens Designs coloured with Copics
Cardstock - Very Vanilla from SU.
Papers - MME Stella and Rose "Mabel".
Antique Linen DI around edges.
Machine stitching (wonky variety).
Ribbon from stash.
CB die cut hearts.
Look forward to seeing more of your
beautiful creations at Sentimental Sundays.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Totally Papercrafts - Cuddly and Cute.
Southern Girls - Add an Animal.
Have a happy week ~ love to all.

Ditto Lisa Jane. Sometimes blogger does this for scheduled posts I think but I do think Mr Blogger has a mind of his own sometimes. They do look really cute on my sidebar though.

I love wonky.
Wonky anything from stitches to walking, Wonky Rules OK LOL!
I love the way you have inserted the hearts in the ribbon, very clever and a lovely card.
Just yesterday I bought some red and white polka dot wooden embellishments that look very similar at a craft shop, great minds think alike!

I missed my hour extra in bed this morning, didn't you Sylvia, still the lighter evenings are lovely and hasn't the weather been beautiful today. A real bonus after the poor forecast.
The blossom is looking superb. I love this time of year.
Your card is gorgeous, what a cute teddy and I love your vintage style papers.
Hope you've had a good weekend.
Hugs Lisax

Hi Sylvia
Are your troubles with Blogger all over now?
I seem to be able to post things up now, just fine.

Your little card is so sweet, just as long as the little one isn't being strangled.. Bears do give BIG hugs don't they.
Take care,
Love from
