It's a Bear today.

I saw these gorgeous bear stamps on a blog the other day and just couldn't resist buying a few for myself.  I really love these bears. They remind me so much of the teddy I had as a young girl. (I still have it actually.)

Here he is:

This digital stamp is called "For You" and you can find it here.  I decided also to join the challenge at Teddy Bo, which is shaped cards, and I made a flower. I used my spellbinders to create all the parts of the flower. The petals were run through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder for more texture and then I glued it all together.  Totally homemade--no templates involved.  I colored the image with my copics and added a flower mask and button in the bottom corner.   I also added some pink perfect pearls around the inside of the flower for some embellishment.
