Polkadoodles Digi Choosday - Winston Bear

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday!  I'm so happy to be back to the Internet; Hurricane Ian took out our Internet Service, flooded my back room addition, downed a tree and part of our privacy fence and ripped shingles off the roof.  Parts of our neighborhood are still flooded but we are starting to get back to normal here and my stress level is way down!

Today begins a new bi-weekly challenge at the Polkadoodles Digi Choosday Challenge Blog.  The team is featuring projects with an Autumn flair however the theme of our challenges is Always Anything Goes!

For my project, I've used the Winston Bear Get in Touch digi stamp to create a sweet Autumn Wishes card.

I've colored Winston using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Alcohol Markers, fussy cut and popped him on craft foam for dimension.  The Autumn papers are from the Echo Park "Celebrate Autumn" 6x6 paper pad and the sentiment has been generated on the computer by me.  I followed a sketch from an older Cards by Kendra Challenge.

Please join us at Polkadoodles, we hope to see you there.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
