Miss You Beary Much!





Finally getting back into the swing of things.  Over the holiday I did a lot of stamping, still working on some major purging, but getting there.  I was so proud of myself thinking I was ahead of the game...only to realize I had done the wrong challenge card for today.  Back to the drawing board and I'll save the other card for another day.

Today over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations we were giving a sketch to work with.  I cheated just a little as I didn't have a scalloped rectangle to work with, so I kept it straight edged.  This was definitely a fun sketch and we got to work with some wonderful images from Stamp Fairy who is our sponsor this week.  I loved the little penguin I used in November and this time I picked one of the cute bears to work with.


I printed out a sentiment on my computer and am going to mail this card off to a friend who had knee replacement surgery a few weeks ago.  This year I'm vowing to send a few more cards instead of collecting them all.  What do you do with all the cards you make?  Do you send them off, hoard them, donate them?


Sorry for the darker photo, I was doing this in my office instead of in my light box.  Hope you will join us this week over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations and use the sketch above to win some goodies from Stamp Fairy.

Make sure to check out how the design team used this sketch:

Hi Kim! Your card is just sooo CUTE! Love that bear digi--I'm loving all the Stamp Fairy images really. Your friend will smile at this. I tend to be a card hoarder. I TRY to get some sent out now and then though. And I actually send prolly about 1 out of 10. I don't know why. Guess I keep telling myself I'm gonna run a booth some day and sell em all. LOL! ;) Have a great week! I might have to do this challenge. I've been on full speed ahead since last week and things are just starting to slow down a li'l . Whew. Okay, sorry this ended up a book! LOL. x
