New Release At Bugaboo!

It's Tuesday! (well, it was!) which means it's new release day over in The Bugaboo store! And before all you with little ankle biters, tiny monsters and cheeky monkeys, get ready to go back to school pop over to Bugaboo Stamps and find this cutie bear for this week's new release and more, School Bears. This is pencil bear, so cute! and just right for all your back to school cards! It's on sale now in their store!
My Card. I've added loads of layers, using black card this time, no cheating with paper/card coloured black with a Promarker! Still no printer ink, so I've been hunting out all my papers that had already been printed, some of them were in my 'bit' folder, I throw nothing away! (which is why the dotty papers inside are slightly different colours.
All the papers are by PinkPetticoat. Buttons came from an old kiddies cardigan. (holey elbows ~ too tatty to give to charity) The thin ribbon came from a new top. Apple came from a set of 'school' brads.
I printed the bear out three times, so I could 3D him. I started with a whole bear, a bear with his leg missing and then lastly, just a bear with an arm holding the pencil. Coloured with Promarkers, fixed together with silicone free 3D gel. (Still not sure if I like it, the silicone seems to have a bit more 'body')
Font is a freebie, it's called Lamebrain BRK (my middle name I think!) For the inside I opened the font in WordArt, so that's why it looks different. I've left it uncoloured, but in my next card I've coloured it with Promarkers.
Had a busy day, first, shopping for shelves, for Deb, sis in law... umm because her car's in the garage. Why??? Because she put diesel in it, instead of petrol! Stopped at the craft shop, I needed glue (again) and Pastel Blue Promarker (again. John and Deb stayed in the pub, which meant I had to drive) then the cake shop, then the furry animal shop, where sis bought a pottery type cat, on to Lady Pams, so John could re-tile her shower, then to the hospital to pop in to see a neighbour, then on to the funeral place to pay a bill, stopped off at the off-licence, then back to lady Pam to pick up John, take Deb home, go on the internet to do a bit of shopping, and then back here. Phew! It's been a very long day!
