In My Heart Always

Good Morning Everyone...I hope you are having a great day. I am so happy you stopped by! Come on in...Take a look around and don't forget if you see something that you like, please take a moment to leave me a comment! For all of you that have have been kind enough to leave comments, thank you so much, you have no idea what they mean to me. Your comments are really a source of inspiration to me!

The other day while I was cleaning up my craftroom, I had come across some mulberry paper that I had gotten ages ago and thought I'd use it to make this little bear. I haven't done anything with The Cutting Cafe Printable stamps since before Christmas so I thought I'd do something with the new files before Regina fires me...LOL! I used the Valentine Long Phrases for this card. The set has 10 assorted phrases and great for cards, scrapbook pages and more! If you haven't been to The Cutting Cafe lately, you are in for a real treat! Regina has been as busy as she can be coming up with some really awesome stamps for Valentine's Day! I have been making cards for a little over a year now but it was Valentine's Day that really started my journey, I have gone full circle through all the holidays and I have to say without a doubt, Valentine's Day is my favorite! This is my first Tear Bear and I hope to get more creative as time allows. Here is the recipe---Card Size: A2
Paper Piecing: Mulberry Torn Paper
Image: Bear Head with Paws
Nestabilities: Heart/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Love Language Card Making Combo
Punches: Fiskars Threading Water Edge, Fiskars Corner Heart Punch (background hearts)Sentiment: Cutting Cafe Valentine Long Phrases
Accessories: Ribbon, Chalk, Gel Pen, Foam Pop Dots

I used various punches for the bears face including the ovals from The Marvy Small Paw, the center of The Marvy Medium Flora for the eyes, Go Kreate Boo Bear for the nose and circle left over from the Fiskars Threading Water Edge punch for the mouth.

That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!!
