Simply Create does Bears

Good morning stampers. At Simply Create we are being challenged to use bears on our cards. I own few bear stamps. I did have a very old SU set..1995...YIKES! It was a gift from a fellow stamper. It's called Button Bears and it was a very good value with 17 stamps. I believe she got it from EBay. The bear is so versatile and today he is all done up for Christmas, but I twisted the colors a bit and followed along with dsp I had from last year. So pink, green, and red are the colors I used. Other supplies are my trustie Nestie to create a frame with Signo white pen dots. I have added a Sizzix Basic Grey snowflake folder. I am loving these folders. The impression seems to be deeper than Cuttlebug folders, and they make many A2 sized ones. I used my newest MS border punch and an old MS snowflake punch with a white "pebble" in the middle. Nesties circles for the sentiment. I did all the coloring with Copics. The card base is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4. I think he's a cutey and this from not much of a "bear" girl.

Have a Happy Weekend. I will be prepping for a stamping get-together for a few friends next weekend. That means lots of YouTube vids to check out  for projects.
