Spring Time Bear

Hello everyone! I'm finally back with another card.  It just seems there is always something getting in the way of crafting.  Pretty soon I will have to start taxes, and oh boy, that takes some time.

I decided to start making some of the the fun folded cards that I like more often!  So I made a tent card.  You can find a tutorial I did a long time ago HERE!

Oh he's a cutie isn't he?  This stamp is from Lili of the Valley called "Spring Time Bear" and the sentiment is "Vintage Labels - Occasions".  I used the super pretty paper pad from LOTV called "Petal Fresh".

My bear was colored with distress inks and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also used two doohickeys from Magnolia - Heart Swirl and Doily Flowers.  Oh, and the pearls are from a Viva Pearl Pen.

That's it for me today!  I hope to get two more cards done this week, that's the goal haha!

Have a good one and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Dena
