Cheat card?

What a beautiful Sunday morning this is today, puffy white clouds in the blue skies, a breeze, enough to dry the clothes on the line, and the sun warm (as long as you are in it). We had our first frost of the season last night. I wonder if we are going to have a really cold winter again?

Anyway on to my "cheat" cards.  I was shopping in The Range a couple of weeks ago and saw these little bears by Me To You in a pick and mix box, I think they were 3 for a £1 and decided as I never buy things like this I would try them.  Then couldn't think what to do with them, until yesterday I decided I HAD to do something.  I followed a Clean and Simple Sketch for each one, 'cause I love it and added some digi papers and came up with these.  I suppose they are supposed to be quick cards, but it took time looking through my stash at digi papers to match them.  I am very pleased as to how they have come out though and may even buy a few more at some time.  The font on each one is Boring Showers.

Hope you all are having a good weekend.

I used digi papers Hello Sunshine by KLewis a freebie scrapbook kit on Facebook 
The background digi paper on this is a freebie I had years ago, but I added yellow to the white stripe to match and the spot is by Summer Driggs flipflopsicles

The digi paper on this one is out of a kit Digitally Smitten from Digital Design Essentials by Gina Cabrera

I am going to add these to my DoCrafts gallery.

These are so cute Faith. I think I have the same problem as you when doing 'quick' cards - it takes me so long to find the right papers. Might help if my stash was more organised !!

They are far more 'hand made' than those in our local garden centre! Sometimes cheat cards are just what people want, and they use up stash so we don't feel bad about buying more!

These are so adorable, Faith! You did a great job of finding matching papers.

Faith these are so sweet, what lovely little cute bears and with the combination of your gorgeous papers they are even prettier. See the more stash we have the longer it is to make something !
