Beary cute...




When I began to make my card for the Whimsy Inspiration blog, I saw this adorable new release from MelJen - Teddy Bears ABC and thought I'd do a back to school card with some school papers. Once I coloured him I thought oh what a cute baby card he'd make, so I switched to pink mode. And in the end it's for a special friend .... crazy how it took form. Not how I envisioned at all, but goes to show how versatile the stamp can be. My son may remove the tag and give it to his teacher yet! The friend sentiment is one of Ann's and is available at Whimsy. So I have made a new card for my blog post tomorrow so check back to see that one. I am entering these challenges... Friday sketchers, Raise the Bar - pearly whites, Sweet Stampin - pink, Crafty Little Place - tags, Cupcake Craft - lace.

Sweet card, I love the striped paper...I find it hard to use stripes, but they look fab on this one. Thanks for joining us at Raise the Bar this week.

Annika said...

Tell me, were you one of those annoying kids who never got a single question wrong in test and always looked immaculate whilst being fun, creative and cute??? Making us mere human kids feel inferior??
Judging by your cards you were... :p Just. Bleedin'. Perfect.
