Have a Beary Christmas...

Pretty cute, huh?  Don't you love that bear's tushy... he makes me smile.

:)

See?

I'm still totally behind in my holiday card-making... it is kinda hard to think about Christmas cards when Fall is in the air (well, soon to be) and all I see is black, orange, green & purple :)



Anyway, back to beary.  I masked off the 'merry' from the Christmas sentiment and then masked off the beary sentiment and stamped.  My masks of choice?  Mini post-it notes.  Yep.  Cover the unvwanted part of the stamp image, ink it up, remove the post-it, and stamp.


Stamps:  Bears & Bubbles, Thinking of You (Hostess Level C)


Paper:  DCWV scallop matchbook card bases, Black & misc. grey cardstocks, kraft packing paper


Ink:  Noir Palette


Other:  Black & white ribbon, White Scrapper's Floss, Stardust glitter pen, PTI button, Scor-Pal w/ Scor-Bug & sanding block


I managed to get six of these babies done... man... how many do I still need to do?!!!


What do you think?
