Tine said...

Hi Janiel, both the card & the box are stunning creations. The fur is amazing! It is difficult to pick a fav of the two, but think the cuddling bears of 'Best Hugs' probably has the edge. Almost 'strokable' - brilliant.
Tine :)

Angela said...

Hi Janiel! OMG these are the cutest bears ever and you worked your magic and created a beautiful card and gift box with them! I love the stroke work on the bears - really makes them look soft and furry! Beautiful work!! hugs, Angela

Inkypinkydelights said...

Hi Janiel, thankyou for your lovely comment on my blog. OMGoodness these are absolutely amazing! Your colouring makes them so real and lifelike! I had to look real closely to check they really did not have fur! lol Gosh they really are stunning! Two really lovely images - Mmmm if I had to choose I think i would choose the second one but it would be a hard decision! I don;t think I can be included in the candy but no worries. I don't have access to a computer next week so would not be able to contact you til a week Monday at the earliest providing things go to plan. Good luck to everyone else though. And a happy week to everyone! Judy x
