IB156 Beary Warm Wishes

Happy Thursday, everyone!  We're back at Inspired By with this uber-sweet little bear...doesn't he look stylish?  

 

I began by pulling out an old SU set called Thankful Forest Friends and stamping the little bear in Smoky Slate ink; here's how he ended up:


I added some little "fur" lines with a marker and fussy-cut him out. The background is some retired DSP on which I stamped a sprinkling of little Smoky Slate and Memento Black winter hats, hand-drawing the ribbing; I even stuck one on top of Mr. Bear's head:


I added an old Whippersnapper sentiment atop a Basic Gray panel that was embossed with a retired Sweater Knit embossing folder:


And added a sentiment from Rustic Retreat on the inside:


I think this is such a sweet, fun inspiration photo, I hope you'll play along!  I have several birthday cards to make, and this one is at the top of my list!  Can't wait to see how you interpret our prompt this week!  Be sure to check out what the other DT members created as well!  Hop on over to the Inspired Blog to see! Thanks for popping in today!

I wanted to share a picture of some cookies my niece Kelly made for Christmas....they were gorgeous and tasted delicious to boot!  Lots of detail and PAINTING with edible paint!! She is the Martha Stewart of the family, hands down!  They definitely contributed to my holiday weight gain, LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
