Digital Tuesday DT card

It's my turn to host this weeks over at Digital Tuesday and the theme this week is "Thank You".
Penny from Penny's Creations is sponsoring us this week and offering the winner her 5 digi images.
She was also kind enough to give the design team 2 of her images to use for the challenge.

I used her Bear With Sign image and just printed him straight onto some Kraft cardstock and printed him out again on white card then cut out just his sign, inked over it with some distress ink and added a SU! sentiment. I also inked around the edge of the bear and coloured his nails with a brown copic.
The lovely paper is from Stampin Up. The brown piece is the reverse of the stripey one.
The swirls were punched with an All Night Media swirl punch. It is just a single swirl punch but I used 2 together to make a little flourish kind of thing. Flower is a Prima and the button is from a bag that the lovely Stef sent me. (thanks hun, they have came in sooo handy, mmwahh)
This is a lot simpler than most of my cards and I didn't really colour anything but it's nice to have a change and I need to start doing simple quick cards for Christmas so I can get a lot more made, so this was good practice. Not sure if I like it but I love those SU! papers. They are from one of the speciality packs (I think) and are much thicker than their normal ones and they also have a textured feel to them. I got these last month and this is the first time I have used them because the colours haven't went with any of the cards I have been making lately, but now I have opened the pack I think you will be seeing a lot more of them :)

Well I hope you are all having a great day. It's pouring of rain here again so looks like it's going to be a crafty day in for me...yay :) but tonight Liam is doing a break dancing performance at Aberdeen's Lemon Tree so I have to go pick him up when that's finished. I really want to go to see him performing but all the tickets are sold out :( We only found out this morning that he was getting to perform as he was off lessons for 2 weeks when he had tonsillitis so his tutor didn't think he would be able to do the performance because he had missed learning some of the routines, but he went to his last lesson and managed to learn everything he had missed and done it so well that his tutor said he could go after all. But I phoned this morning for tickets and they are all sold out. The woman at the box office has been trying for over an hour to see if she could get me tickets (which was really nice of her. she even worked over her normal shift so she could keep phoning to try get me tickets), but she couldn't get through on the phone to the place that the performance is being held, so she has gave me the number so I can try myself later.
Keep your fingers crossed for me! Hope someone who has tickets is ill and can't go lol, then I will be able to get their seat :)
If I do manage somehow to get tickets, I will take lots of picks so you can see my little break dancer in action lol. I haven't even seen him do it myself and this is his first performance, so I will be really gutted if I can't go.

Until then though, I'm off to make some Christmas cards while I only have one kid at home and she's sitting watching Mr Maker (a kiddies arts and crafts thing on the telly).

It's a lovely card Lora even if it's not your usual 'thing'. Sometimes does us good to do something completely different. Had loads of rain today here too.
