Sheepski Bears

     As soon as Andrea released this pair of teddy bears, a new image for January, I just had to use it for another of my Valentine cards.  You can find it in the Sheepski Designs store if you want to look.  I'll be sharing it as one of my DT cards on the Facebook site, too.  Don't forget the old challenge on Facebook ends on January 19 ("Always Anything Goes" with a Sheepski image) and the new one will start on January 20.


     I colored the bears with my ProMarkers, then cut the image with a square, stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  I also cut the red mat from a leftover scrap using a larger die from that same set and then offset them onto each other and onto the background dp (Graphic 45.)

     The leaves were also die cut from scraps (Cheery Lynn) and I added a white flower.  I found a large package of those at the after Christmas sales so I added to my stash with these new embellies.

     Hey, we actually had a few hours of sunshine yesterday afternoon!  Not that things dried out much but we're happy to have no flooding, just wet ground which will last a while.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Adorable image and I love that you let it take center stage. Nice little touches with the leaves and flower. Have a good day and I'm glad it has dried out a bit for you out there.
