Have a Beary Happy Easter!!!

Good Afternoon!!!!

I have a challenge card today, using a new (to me) product! And boy did I have fun with it!!!!

Isn't that bear just the cutest thing???????  I loved it!  It's an SVG from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs!  They have the CUTEST stuff, and I just couldn't resist!!!!  She was standing, but she's quite poseable, and you can (with a bit of maneuvering) make her sit, stand, do splits, whatever!

Too stinkin cute!  I spent WAY too much money in their shop this week LOL.

Here's a close up of this darling bear!

I just had the BEST time shading her with chalks, doing the eyes and the cheeks,,,,,,,love her! And I love the bright springy colors too!!!!!!!

I'll be entering this into the Little Scraps of Heaven card sketch challenge! REally, you ought to give it a try,,,,paper piecing is easier than it looks (OK, so my first bear looked like a ninja bear because I put the eyes on wrong, but all t takes is a bit of practice LOL) and it's so much fun too!!!!

Card Recipe:

Paper: Graphic 45 Secret Garden 8x8 pack, Recollections
Die cuts: Little Scraps of Heaven Bear with Rough fur single, Spellbinders Labels 22, Die-namics Mini Royal Rolled Roses
Chalks and Inks: Pebbles, white Uniball, black artist pen .1, Versafine vintage sepia
Ribbon and lace: Really Reasonable Rbbon

Hope you love the card!  I'm so sorry I've not gotten around to any blogs this past week or two,,,,my youngest daughter is getting married in June,,,,,,,,I have three months to get this thing off the ground, and it's killing me LOL,,,,,,This week alone, we've chosen and deposited a venue for the wedding, chosen colors, invitations, flower girl dresses and today,,,,,,,,,,THE dress. Busy, busy, busy! But a fun time!

I promise I'll get around after Easter and Passover!!!!!!

May all my Christian friends have a lovely Easter,,,,,,,,,and may all my Jewish friends have an amazing Passover!!!!
