Panda Bear Love

I thought I'd start the week off right with a cute little image from Deedee's Digis.  This little guy is from the set All My Love that you can find in Deedee's store.  He's pre-colored and I'm really enjoying working with this type of image - especially when you need a card in a hurry or just don't want to take the time to color one.  When you order this set you'll get the colored version, line version if you want to do your own coloring, and sentiments.  Can't beat a deal like that if you ask me.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the red heart background and a snippet of black and white polka dots for the strip across.  The little panda was printed twice and I popped up the heart and used the Wink of Stella pen on it to give it a little shine......added the sentiment and doodled a little around the tag.  The red net was recycled from a Christmas present we received this year.  That's about all there is to it - except for the fact I LOVE bears - panda, koalas, etc......Yep, bears and frogs.  That either says I'm very strange or just like nature.  We'll go with the liking nature bit!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Thanks for stopping by......and check out Deedee's Digis for some fantastic digi stamps.

Great way to get a bunch of cards done w/ pre-colored images! I think you would of done just a good of job if you colored it yourself!!

Lynn, this is as cute as can be and I'm voting that you just like nature. :-) The tulle was a good idea to tie your adorable tag. Love your card...and the dots. You know I'm a dot lover, don't you? Ha

Lynn, This card is darling. That shade of red is just stunningly beautiful. I wish I could make those doodle marks that you do. I'v e tried and it never comes out right. Your popped up balloon looks like it is in flight. I really like the twine wrapped around the netting. I haven't gotten this sets yet, but it is going on my list soon.
I am going with nature lover also for you. LOL Enjoy the week. It is going to be very, very cold tomorrow but I HAVE to go out. Working tomorrow. I don't mind the working part, just hate the cold part.

Umm - yes, I will agree that you just like nature and not comment on the other part of your statement ;-)

Really eye-catching card Lynn. It's bold and it's cute too! Love the red and black and as I'm rubbish at colouring black, the pre-coloured panda is a goer for me! xxx

What an adorable Panda, Lynn! Love the dimension on the heart and the shine from the Wink. Wonderful color combo with the polka dots (always love polka dots!) and the red netting is such a great touch. I've been gone a few days, playing up north but am back now. :-D

MaryH said...

Miss Strange One...Your Panda is adorable. Loved your combination of elements on this sweet fella to make such a bright, cheery & just plain ole FUN card! I like cute frogs, love pandas & Koalas too. Not sure I'm a nature lover per se, so guess I'm in the Strange camp as well. Got my eye on this digi too! TFS & Hugs. (We are getting some light snow flurries as I write. Don't think it's gonna lay on the ground though. EEK)

Joan Ervin said...

This is such a darling image, Lynn, and what a bonus to have it already colored...sounds like a deal to me!!!! Love how you used a tag, too, and the embossed hearts in the background are sooo sweet!!!

Darnell J Knauss said...

What a fun card, Lynn, and what a perfect Valentine! It's ALMOST as cute as one of your frog cards! I love that heart EF!! Hugs, Darnell

Deepti said...

Mary Marsh said...

this is so cute Lynn and a pre-colored image is such a time saver-I love it

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

Oh, I love me a panda! What a great card. X

Princess Judy Palmer said...

This is a very sweet card. The red netting is such a neat item to use and fits with your card so well. The fact that there are pre-colored digis now just boggles my mind. Great for quick cards though, that's for sure!

gale said...

aww what a cute little panda. I agree that these precolored images are so handy for quick cards.

Anne Temple said...

Too cute. Love the tag and the netting/twine combo. And that black/white polka dot strip really makes everything pop.

Shirley said...

How adorable! I love every detail you gave him for his presentation! Your embossed BG is perfect behind the adorable tag frame you did for him!

Marilyn said...

I love cards with tags and this one is so cute! Love that embossing folder too.

The colors are perfect for the cute panda and I love the netting!!
We may be a little weird, but I don't think it has anything to do with liking frogs and pandas. More likely a side effect of our creative brains!
