It's All About the Bears! Day 1


Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to our 3-day hop showcasing, you guessed it, bears!  Well, Teddy Bears to be precise.  Teddy Bears from Cricut's Teddy Bear Parade!

"A Teddy bear is a faithful friend
You can pick him up at either end.
His fur is the colour of breakfast toast,
And he's always there when you need him most." 

We hope you will be inspired by our teddy bear creations.  As you hop along from blog to blog, you may see some blog candy being offered.  Please follow the blogger's instructions to enter and be eligible to win.

If you just happened on my blog, please start at the beginning of our hop with Janis of Pause Dream Enjoy.

I chose the Bumblee Teddy Bear for my first day's project.  I made a card to give a friend to make them smile.


I tell you -- I think that every one of these bears are just too stinkin' cute!

I cut my bear at 3".  It's the B3 key.  I have used Chocolate, Black, Saddle, Buttercup and White Daisy cardstock to make this card.  I also used paper from the Pemberley paper back to make this card.

I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge to cute the 2nd and 3rd layers of my card.  The image can be found on page 49, B9, Accent 4, < o > - cut at 3 3/4"  4 3/4" and 4 1/4" x 5 1/4".  The word bubble can be found on page 65, D5, Accent 2, < b > cut at 2 ".  I edged the outside of the word bubble with Outdoor Denim ink using a sponge dauber.

The bee hive and the small and large bees came from a retired Close to My heart stamp set that was a Hostess Reward.  I found I have an extra set so I'm offering it as blog candy!  Here's a picture of of the mini stamp set I am giving away:
