Have a Beary Happy Birthday! (and news of a Digital Delights freebie too!)

Happy Friday Everyone!
(Freebie Friday news is after the card!)
Today I have one of those "Just because I wanted to use the stamp" cards :)
The new stamps by ArTish at The Pixie Cottage are so super cute that I want to use just all of them! This is another one featuring one of her cute bears, and this time he's daydreaming in the flowers!

And of course there were challenges I wanted to play with too:

Crafts 4 Eternity - Sketch, Bear and Ribbon
Just Cute Bears - Buttons and Bows (and a bear)
Lexi's Creations - Animals
Corrosive - Birthdays
Simon Says Stamp - Birthday
Stamp Something - Birthdays
One Stitch At A Time - Something for the Children
Craft Your Passion - Embossing
The Crafty Pad- Ribbons
Paper Make Up- Buttons and Bows
Crafty Sentiments - Buttons
Paper Scissors Rocks - Butterfly
Alphabet Challenge - B is for Butterflies
Tellens Place - Dragonflies or Butterflies
Flutterby - Open week (with Butterfly, Fairy or Angel)
Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Photo Inspiration
My Partner In Crime- Anything Goes
Inky Impressions - Summer
Creatalicious - Flowers and Wings

Card Recipe:
Image - Waking Up To Spring
Papers - My Minds Eye
Buttons - The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Double Loop
Butterfly punch - Martha Stewart
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Printed
Embossing folder - Cuttlebug

I think I could do with a few moments in the sun too but knowing my luck I'd be sneezing with all the pollen! LOL (anyone else suffering with Allergies super bad this year?)

Now everyone likes freebies don't they?
It's the 1st Friday of the month and that means a new freebie from Digital Delights!
I hope I got you in the bear mood with today's card as this months freebie is a bear too!

Just a reminder that you can now find the freebies at our groups at Papercraft Planet and SNR Card Universe All you have to do is join one or both of our groups and the image is yours. You can find it under the subject Freebie Friday in the discussions area!!) Be sure to become a follower of the groups of your choice so you can be sure to keep up to date with our fun happenings!!

I hope you've enjoyed the card and be sure to go on over and snag the free image from Digital Delights and be sure to drop back tomorrow for a new Tilda card.
