#109 Lenny & the Champers

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - 3 different design papers
Sponsor & prize this week - Stamp Fairy ($10 gift certificate)

This week's DT card uses one of our sponsor's image, that of Lenny (Happy New Year 5) but as this dapper young bear is clutching a rather nice looking champagne glass, I reckon he could be easily used to celebrate anything, not just New Year. He was coloured with Promarkers of course.

The layout I have chosen to use is another fab one from CLP but if you ladies on the CLP DT notice I have actually tilted a couple of the layers, so I hope you forgive me. LOL. Why? Well, obvious really when you think about it - look at the size of the champagne glass against the size of the bear.  If you consumed your own body weight in champers then I reckon you too would be having to lean on the glass and be seeing the world all wonky! LOL.  I reckon I would be spark out on the floor mind you! LOL. I have indeed used 3 dps too, not just the two orangey ones, it is just that the blue one in the background also has a woven texture to it, making it match perfectly with the base card I chose to use. Actually, I used the blue & orange patterned one twice - a tiny bit was paper-pieced for Lenny's very smart tie.

I cut my sentiments out on the front to tie in with the design LO too and added the Dovecraft twine just because I liked it and it worked for me. LOL. Hope you like it too.
