Bear Hug for Mum!

Again this week has been pulled from under my feet without me realising!!

So today I've tried to mix several challenges into one creation.

The first is ColourQ for these gorgeous colours

and the second is
Mojo Monday where they have this sketch

And the last is Stampin' Royalty where they set us the hard task of making a project with

After a lot of head scratching, I decided to put my trusty Big Shot to work and came up with this card

Here is a close up of the bear. Isn't he cute???        I'd forgotten about this die ( and the others in the box) so you may see a few more turning up in my next creations!!

The yellow and orange cards were embossed ( sorry my photo doesn't do them any justaice!! ) and had their edges sponged. The green card was shaped with a border punch and stuck down before the stamped label was placed over it. The bear was cut with a large die, edges sponged, and face drawn on before he was raised on 3D pads to "hug" the sign.

Card = Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, White card coloured with Lucky Limeade Write Marker, and brown card from my stash
Stamps = Baby Blossoms, and sentiment from Just Believe and Papermania
Inks = Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Soft Suede, Black, and White markers for the bears face
Tools = Big Shot, Sizzix Texturz, Nestabilities Labels, Die-Monde bear die, Martha Stewart border punch, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras = 3D pads

I'm due in hospital tomorrow for my new RA treatment, however, I seem to have come down with a heavy cold and a cough that sounds like a barking dog!!!! so I don't think the Dr will allow me to have it. Please keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope to be back soon with another card.


  1. This is adorable Bev! Thank you so much for playing with us at the colourQ this week!

  3. This absolutely adorable! I love how your cute bear is holding up the sentiment "sign!" Thanks for joining us at colourQ!

  4. Very cute card. That bear is so sweet.

  5. This is gorgeous Bev! I like the way you've stamped the label and the way the bear is displaying it. Hope you recover from this horrid cough and cold - I expect Monty is rather surprised to hear you barking! Vicky x
