'Beary' Sweet Day

The Happiest Mother's Day to all of you who are moms!

     I did one more card which I'm going to use as a Mom's Day card even though the image could work for any occasion or even a non-occasion.  That sweet bear came from Gerda Steiner Designs and was the most recent image for their monthly progressive challenge.  Unfortunately, they've had to drop their challenge but I'm posting the card anyway just because the image is so adorable.

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image (printed on a scrap of white CS), then cut it with a framing die from Spellbinders.  The die was longer than I wanted so I covered the the bottom with a scrap of dp from the DCWV Linen Closet stack.  I matted everything with another scrap of navy blue CS and layered that onto a light blue card front.  My signature, hand-sewn, bow is the only embellishment.  This time, the plain white seemed to work best so I didn't even dye it like I usually do.

     I've really been into blues the last three days!  I hope my blogging friend, Lynn, appreciates it!  lol  She totally loves blue; lots of it and any shade there is.

     All you moms out there, enjoy your day and hug your family!  If you can sneak in a crafting hour, enjoy that, too.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
