A Card From Scraps and a Bear Hug!


I had some scraps lying around from another project I was working on so decided to use them up. I LOVE this Thoughts and Prayers set - this tree is just soo elegant! Here it's stamped in Rose Red and paired with Night of Navy CS and some retired designer series DP. And what can I say about the new Eyelet Border Punch - apart from I LOVE IT!!! It adds such a classic elegance to any project - you'll be seeing it around here a lot!!


I also thought I'd show you a photo of some of the bears I have made, especially after a special request from my dear friend Lisa at Craft's Meow! Unfortunately I just couldn't get a clear shot with my dog Holly around, but at least she posed nicely in this one rather than trying to give all the bears a good sniff. I think she's a bit of a camera hog - LOL.

OMGoodness! How Cute!!! Your bears are wonderful... and so is Holly! She just wanted to guard them, I'm sure. {LOL} She sure is adorable, too... just like a stuffed teddy. She sorta has the same expression as they do!

Your bears are super cute and obviously well made. A woman of many talents, for sure!

Guess what...we have similar flooring! I'm telling you, we are twins!

And I do love your card... that is such a great stamp set. I'm really tempted...

Love to you my dear friend. Thanks for sharing the bears and Holly with me!

Love your card!...Love your bears!.... Love your dog ! ( and that is amazing coming from me since I am usually DEFINITELY not a dog person-but she is very cute!)

I love this card Debbie! That DP is fabulous! I think I use the Rose Red more than any other one of SUs, although I could get into the Ridinghood Red too. I do like that eyelet punch too. Just got mine with my last order. This set is still on my wish list.

Those teddy bears are adorable as well as that doggie of yours! You sure are a gal of many talents. When do you have time for all that?

First, your Holly and the bears you made are SUPER CUTE! It puts a “warm fuzzy” feeling in my heart when I look at them... I just want to cuddle! :) Your card is soooooo adorable Debbie! And yes, very elegant with the stamp set and the border punch. Love what you did with the Thoughts and Prayers set!! Keep this awesome talent coming... Hugs and blessed day Debbie! :)

Jean said...

Debbie, your card is beautiful - I would never think to stamp this image in red! It looks so good! Also love the little bears you have made. I was a bear maker at one stage - bigger ones than yours though - I still have lots of bear making stuff sitting around here.

Holly looks so cute sitting there guarding the bears.

Kellie said...
