Sweetheart Bear

I have been busy this week with PTA, since we have our Holiday Shop for the kids.  Today, I will be at Tate's school all day, because I am in charge of the shop today.  I only worked the Holiday Shop in the morning yesterday, so I could get some errands done.  I love it when I have images colored for these busy times.  I can make a card faster and take time to create.

My friend, Diane (DZ Doodles) created this image called Sweetheart Bear for her tutorial on fun flock here.  If you haven't seen this tutorial on her site, which was also featured in one of the Paper Craft Planet newsletters, you really should.  The bears she made with the fun flock are FABULOUS!  She was so gracious to give me one of her finished images to make a card.  Thanks, Diane!  I love it!

Here is a close up of the bear on my card.  See the texture....so cute!

I decorated the inside of this card, because I just couldn't leave it blank.  The Sweetheart Bear deserves a pretty place for the message.

Once the holidays are over, we will be thinking about Valentine's Day.  This is a perfect image for your Valentine's Day cards.  Don't forget that Diane has a sale right now on many of her images.  She will be retiring some at the end of the year, so check out what she has before they are gone.

I think I'll just "do up" a bunch of images from now on and "let you" design around them! That is just as "cute" as can be - Good Job Maynard(tee-hee)!
