FF95 Bear Hugs


Happy Friday, peeps!  A quick post and a quick card for today using Fab Friday's sketch:


Going through some of my old SU stuff, I found a card kit from a couple years back that had these fun little notecards, so I thought I would use this one for a birthday card for my nephew:


I paired it with some retired DSP that had a grunge look to it; a bear from last year's Thankful Forest Friends and a sentiment from The Paper Studio.  I added a couple of circle mats, a tag from Simon Says Stamp and some candy dots too!  The elements were stamped with Timeless Textures, and the bear was stamped with Soft Suede.  I added some shadowing to give him a little depth using ink and a blender pen:


He kinda makes me smile!  And so does this wee one, on a rainy trip to the bus stop.  Check out those socks!
  

Enjoy your day!
