Another 1st Birthday

I made this card for my friend who had seen the card I made at the start of January and wanted a similar version, that is one of the many benefits of having a blog, when someone asks about a card you can show them ones you have made previously. This helped me enormously as I am struggling to put together even the most basic card at the moment. This bronchitis is certainly kicking my butt, maybe I should have listened and stayed off work but then I would only have stressed about it instead.

I bought all 4 of these babies with bears and this is the first one I have coloured, I am not normally pleased with my colouring but I think this is the best curly hair I have ever done and makes me want to colour more.

I have used the card left over from the 1st birthday card I made at the beginning of January and the papers too, now as my desk is so messy they hadn't even made it to the snippet draw, naughty Amanda lol.
