Popcorn the Bear… Friday, Sep 15 2017 

Our Challenge for you at Fussy and Fancy this week is ‘Fall Colours’ Now this one is a big challenge for me. As most of you know this is not my favourite colour combination. I had to search through my stash to find some appropriate papers and came across some that were given free with one of the recent card magazines. Wonderful, I’m on my way! I’ve combined them with a cute Popcorn the bear stamp and some of my favourite dies from Marianne Designs. Even though I’m not a big fan of Autumn tones I was pleased with the end result, I think Popcorn turned out quite nicely don’t you think?
