It's all about the bears

Hope you all had a good weekend and are refreshed for the week ahead.  Can't believe this week will see February over and the start of March.  Be Christmas before we know it lol.

Today sees the start of a new fortnightly challenge over at Forever Friends.
Our theme for this challenge is 'Teddy Bears'.  You can create anything you like as long as we can see a teddy on it.

Our two sponsors for this challenge are


Prize - 7 free digi images of the winners choice


Prize - $10 voucher to spend at their web store.
Just pop over to Forever Friends to check out all the details and take a peek at all the inspiration provided by the design team.

For my first card I used an image from Bugaboo.


Card recipe:  Image - Theodore with flowers, papers from Wild Rose Studio, punched butterflies, card candi, sentiment from Craftwork Cards, flowers from stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

My second card is using a cute Forever Friends image.


The decoupage and paper came from a freebie in a magazine before christmas.  Added some ribbon, punched butterflies and some buttons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Here Come The Boys - Lots of layers
Cards Galore - One for the men

There are also many reputed facebook fan page design and fan providers

It gives you info such as fan interaction and visitor demographics but it is limited and can't provide info on sources of traffic, keyword data and other sophisticated data.
