A Bear for Dad

As I was trawling through some blog challenges I saw that Stamptacular Sunday had a BEARnecessities challenge which would work with some of the new LOTV stamps including this cute bear.
Add a fabulous sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and some My Minds Eye papers which looking at them now, bit too busy but this is what I finished up with. I just like to add that I was in the top 3 last week with Mo's chubby fairy.
The photo corners are punches and if its a male card out comes the faux brads, the sentiment is a Woodware one and I used a stampin up punch and then made a mat by punching out another one and drawing round it with fat nib pen to make a border round the punched template and then I cut it out.
I have used the cricut to cut various sized stars and I use them as templates its a bit quicker for one off stars and I able to position the templates on scraps of paper easier.
The weather doesn't look very promising for the weekend but apart from Sunday I shall have my head down getting on with loads of cards so that I will have plenty to show when I go on my hols soon.

  69. Gorgeous - I struggle with male cards but that bear is just perfect. Love how you have created a mat for the punched sentiment - I must give that a try as I often wish that I could do mats for some of my smaller punches.
