Gone Fishin'

When I saw the title of the  new challenge theme at Crafty Cardmakers - 'Cute and Furry', I had a bit of a panic attack. I don't realy do 'cute', so I hope the girls will forgive me for reaching out for a craft CD.
This is Popcorn the Bear from Crafters Companion.
I printed out the image and a super matching background paper.
A piece of blue cardstock for layering, I used a punch on the corners.
I added the thread rope with a fish charm on the end, so he was quite a lucky bear to make such a good catch. Extra shading round the edges was Broken China distress ink.
We have two sponsors with super prizes on offer,  The Stamp Man and Di's Digistamps, please pop over for all the details and see what we have been making.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I do always appreciate your comments.


  1. I can imagine that would give you a panic attack. Not you really, but you have done the challenge good justice with this one!!

  2. Lovely card Yvonne glad I wasn't asked to pick yours out from a line up, I would have lost! :)

  4. Gorgeous card, cute and furry would have had me stumped, too! Hugs, Valerie

  5. Well this is cute, but with a nice vintage feel! Love your cute and furry card! I like you, don't do cute! Enjoy!

  6. You see it's good to step out of our comfort zone occasionally, even if it does give us a panic attack. Hope you have calmed down now lol.
    Sorry I haven't been by lately I will try and do better.

  8. Great catch! Cute is a hard one when it's not ones usual style :-)


  9. I know it's hard when the theme is right out of your comfort zone - but for what it's worth, I love your Popcorn image and think he is perfect for the challenge.

    I think it is really clever the way you have the charm hanging from the rod! A good example of how you can enhance a simple cd image.


  10. This is just adorable Yvonne!!! You do cute just fine!!

  11. Hi Yvonne, yeah panicked me as well - a popcorn CD would have been my default option had I not remembered my little doggy. Beautiful as usual though!! Cindy
