What a Fantastic Friday!

I have been feeling a bit under the weather this week....ugh, but I did get off my butt to make a card using this adorable image from Deedee's Digis.  The challenge this week is to use a leaf (or leaves) on your card.  This time of year, it seems that all my leaves have blown off the trees ~ hopefully, into the yard next door!

This adorable bear is doing his best to gather up my leaves....making a perfect card for either my neighbors or the boys on the street that love to make HUGE piles and, you guessed it, jump in them!

The card stock is from my never ending pile, the orange metal dots were gifted to me by my friend Terry, the leaves/branches are from a SU! punch, and I used this weeks sketch challenge over at SCS.  Oh, and I colored up Mr. Bear with my Bic's!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please think about entering the great challenge over at Deedee's (always a fun time, if I do say so myself)!

Huggz,
April

This is such a cute card! That bear is just so adorable, makes me want to hug him. I wish he could come and rake my leaves!!

Oh, I really like the layering you used. Now, do you think he will actually sweep? If so, I need him!
