Beary Merry Christmas


Hi everyone.  Here's a very special card I made for this year.  My dear friend Lee-Anne (Creatively LA) sent me this adorable stamp.  She thought of Cooper when she saw it, so she wanted me to have it. :)  Thank you so much Lee-Anne!  I just love this sweet image, and it was perfect to make this card for Evan, Nikki and Cooper this year. :)  They have received it in the mail, so it's safe to post. :)

I coloured with my Zig Watercolour pens, added some sparkle to the bear's bow, along with Santa's hat cuff and pompom; and then added a simple popped up sentiment.  I wanted the image to be the star of the card, so just added a little twine to finish things off. :)

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! :)







Stamps:  Beary Merry (Penny Black)
Paper:  White (Neenah)
Ink:  Black Archival (Ranger); Real Red (SU!); Zig watercolour pens
Accessories & Tools:  waterbrush, dazzling diamonds glitter blue, maraschino twine (the twinery)
