Benson Bear Day

Today over at the Crafty Sentiments Inspirational Blog the DT have been having fun playing with Benson Bear, here's a little more about the adorable little guy ...

But before I tell you about my Benson creation I'd like to remind you to become a follower over at the Inspirational blog, we have reached 170 followers and when we reach 200 someone who is a follower and who has been leaving the occasional comment on the Inspiration Blog will win a fantastic surprise prize, so get following and encourage your friends.

Right here goes, this time I decided to be a bit different for me and I made a tag, the balloon tag and its shadow were cut using the Cricut and MME papers then I thought I'd try printing Benson on to Kraft cs and I like the way he turned out.  The 4 & U were cut using the Cricut from Kraft and coloured with copics to match the colours used to colour Benson and his gift. I added Bakers Twine to the bottom of the balloon and a big organza brown bow (not overly happy with the bow but I do seem to struggle to tie these bows as neat as a lot of people out there in Blogland) finished the image off with some white gel pen and a tiny red gem.  I hope you like all the DTs Benson creations, we certainly love him!
