I cannot express what I felt reading the comments you left on Danni's Tribute and the emails..talking about tearing up..... I was crying. I am so glad your hearts were touched for the Silent Rank's and sending soldiers all over the world cards is awesome!!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
This easy fun card is for Fridays Challenge at Teddys Stampers. The challenge, of course has to have a teddy bear and this week pertain to Spring! I had a blast making it! Easy to color with Copics for you don't want you colors blended...you want them to look like fur!! I used a free digital stamp, "Gardening Bear" from ElizabethO Dulemba. If you have not been to her site you need to go! She has lots of super cute digital stamps for free! When you click on her name scroll down on the very first page and you will see them and each Tuesday she does a new digital! How awesome is that?
I have lots of good deals for you today! Do you have an over abundance of card stock? I sure do! I wish I knew about paper pads in the very beginning for I would have saved a whole lot of money!! How? I am using DCWV, Mediterranean Cafe paper stack. In this particular pack you get 48 sheets of 12x12 card stock and they match! You can have stripes, flowers, glittery all in the same matching colors. Not all 48 sheets are the same color scheme only about 5 are and then a new color scheme. Joann has them on sell right now for 11.99 and the 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 on sell for 5.99. You can't touch DP for any less. On the 12 x 12 it equals to approx. 13 cents per sheet!! WAhoo!!
I used Special Moments Brads and the brads are the metal butterflies and centers of the flowers. I couldn't find the exact ones I have for you, but I did find a deal!! An eBay seller has them for sell for $2.25 and the box's contain 46 different brads and only a $1.45 for shipping. You can't beat that deal either! My paper flowers are from my stash and I am using Dew Drops and get this!!! On Frugral Crafter they explain and have pictures on how you can make your own Dew Drops! I will try it soon and let you know how it does! I distress my paper edges with Tim Holtz Distresser on Scrapbooking Warehouse for 4.88. I used TH Distress Ink/marmalade and Joann has them on sell for $3.49 and the reinkers on sell for 2.49. Lots of deals today!!!
Thank you for looking and have a great day!!
