Bear, bear, bears!

Hello! Did you have a wonderful weekend?  I tell ya it is a very hot summer here! We moved Alyssa to another house at school and were just having a heat stroke!

Today, I have a card to show you for the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!  The theme is BEARS!!! How fun!

I was so excited to use one of the Teddy Bo images.  I think they are all so very cute!

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Teddy Bo- Strawberry Pickin
Inks:  Distress Inks
Tools:  MS Border Punch, MS Frond Punch
Embellies:  Paper Blooms, Sweetheart Blossoms, 25mm Red Curly Roses, 10mm Olive Open Roses, Jute all from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!

Be sure to go have a look at all the cute bear creations from the design team.  They are super cute!!!!

I would like to share with you the gorgeous trees that are blooming right now. In the middle of this awful heat are these Crepe Myrtles!  I have loved them since I was a kid.  They can grow very large, taller than a house even!  The blooms are wonderful this year and very full! These are planted all up and down our streets where I live and look amazing!

One more thing before I go!  A very sweet girl, Michelle, made a PDF , SVG, and MTC files of the Up and Away card I made the other day.  You can find it HERE.  I will put this link also on that particular post for everyone!  I'm so glad there are computer savvy people out there!! hahaha! Thanks a lot Michelle!

I'm glad you stopped by my blog today, I hope you will enter our challenge!

Hugs, Dena
