That Panda Again!

Hello and thank you for taking the time to pop by and visit today.

Yesterday I had trouble with my laptop and kept losing internet connection so I apologise if I've not got round to visit you yet.  I'll be catching up with you over the weekend

A few days ago I shared a card I'd made where I used this little panda.
  He came with a few other stamps and the embossing folder as a freebie with a magazine recently.

I was so taken with this cute little chap that I started using the set straight away and made several card with the set.

For this one I used the paws, randomly for the background and cut a Nellie Snellen heart die from some silver mirri card.  I replaced his balloon with a sentiment from a Paula Pascal set and coloured it with a red sparkle pen.

For the second card I embossed the waste and put some red card  at the back.  Both cards were made with white card stock although they look more cream coloured in the photos which were taken in the evening.

I would like to enter the first card into  the Sweet Stampin' challenge - Love is in the Air

  3. Two sweet cards using the freebie panda set. I did pick up the magazine and then strong-mindedly put it back on the shelf. However, I think I might be tempted if it is still around when I go shopping next!!

  11. I am not surprised that the little panda has made another appearance as he really is a cute little chap. I particularly like the way you have placed him carrying a sentiment balloon!

  14. Delightful panda, and how he does dress up this pretty golden heart. Love that die shape. Looks very pretty with the nifty embossing. Also love how you've used the negative from this heart to create card #2. The magazine freebies you get in the UK are just amazing. Equally amazing is what you card makers create with them! TFS & Hugs
