Bear Hugs

I have been wanting to make a bear hugs card to send to a friend. I didn’t actually get that done the way I had imagined, but did make a bear card for her.

Had some fun creating this one. I used vellum, as that is the WeCraftCards challenge this week. But, I mostly followed the MFT Sketch challenge, too. Granted, I put a vellum piece over the top of the sketch, but I used the Birthday Bears set, as well as the Adorable Elephants set to make this bear holding heart balloons.

I stamped and embossed the images, using masking, on the vellum, then used alcohol markers to color them. The colors are pretty close to the heart strips of the pink and blue. The purple matches the purple in the striped paper behind, which goes with the background panel. I dry embossed that back panel to make it a bit cuter. 3D embossing folders are so much fun to use. It’s a pillowy texture background. I used purple on the bear in a couple places so it all goes together.

Definitely had fun making this one. Thanks for sharing some of your valuable time with me! Have a wonderful week.

Sketchy Get Well Card

Designed this in my head at work this week.  It didn’t work out exactly as planned, but pretty close.  Definitely had fun with it.

Used lots of different MFT Birdie Brown sets on this one: Magical Dragons, Ewe are the Best, Lucky Dog, Recipe for Happiness.  Can you tell I really like Birdie Brown images?

Had to have a sick dragon, a chef with some chicken soup, as well as a few friends to look on.  If  you’re not feeling well, I hope this makes you feel a bit better.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!

Get Well Cards

Today I went to see the specialist, who couldn’t find anything really wrong.  He gave me a few things to try for 2 months, then go back.  Hopefully those will alleviate the problem.

Two ladies at church are going through some major problems health-wise, so I needed to get 2 Get Well cards done.  Here’s the one I made that follows the MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations challenge.

ith the 3 different papers and the two different flowers, this has a lot more “activity” than I normally put on a card, but I kind of like this one.  Used the lavender paper to help the two patterned papers stand out a bit.

For the other one, I just adjusted one of the For Any Occasion cards I had.  Got them in the mail before it ran, too.

Well, between 2 different Bible studies for the next two evenings, work, making the cake and the bridal shower on Saturday, I probably won’t get anymore cards made, though I really hope to get at least 1 more done.  Maybe that will be my relaxation on Sunday afternoon.

Thanks for spending some time with me today!  Have a great rest of the week.
