Good morning peeps. 

Dawny P here and a very happy Monday to everyone xxx

And it IS a happy Monday today because today is the day that we start to share the new Summer Bears release with you.

This new release is, as always, absolutely gorgeous and super sweet and will go on sale on 25th June. So between now and then, keep an eye out on the DT blogs, as well as here on the Ideas To Inspire blog.

The images are quite clever I think because they are perfect for everyone so will be a great addition to your stash. And they come with a sentiment as well – just perfect :)

So, let me introduce you to ….

... Fun Birthday.

I’ve gone for pastels here which makes the image really stand out. I’ve used soft and pretty colours but you could easily change them, along with the papers,  and turn this into a man’s card with very little effort.

Copics I’ve used are -

B0000, E42, E43, E50, E51, E81, RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV14, RV34, YG0000, YG23 (plus polychromos pencils)

and the papers are from the Nitwits  FQB Stuffed With Love collection

A perfect sentiment for a perfect image :)

I hope you like the card and thank you for stopping by today.

There will be another sneakie peekie tomorrow so if you get a sec, do stop by. So until then, have a fabulous and sunny day,

Huggiest of hugs,

Dawny P xxx
