"Beary" Godmother

    Happy Mother's Day to all the moms in Canada and the US!

      I have to admit that my favorite silly bears are the ones from QKR Stampede.  They're just so quirky and full of attitude.  :-D  Today I combined the "Baking" bear with one of the QKR sentiments about a "Beary Godmother" and I think this is such a fun and funny card!  Here's the card front.


and the inside...


     I colored the image with ProMarkers and die cut it with one of my Spellbinders dies, then distressed it with one of the Ranger inks.  The inside sentiment is cut with a die from QuicKutz.  The A2 card base is made from colored CS.  I used two pieces of scrap brown CS for neutral colored layers (wanting a monochromatic feel to the card), tearing each of them and embossing one.  The blue gems are on ribbon and I wrapped them around the card front.  The bow is one of the ones I make and stash away until they're needed.

     How's your weekend going?  I'm having a fantastic time with lots of playing and lots of family.  If you seem to be seeing less of me over the summer months it's because I'm taking a leave of absence from one of my DT positions; 2 of my DT terms are ending, and I'm working ahead as best I can on another team.  I'll be doing my best to make cards and schedule posts when I'm home and can craft but I may be a bit hit or miss between now and mid-September.  Hope you'll continue to visit when you can.  In the meantime, Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
