Beary sweet

Good Monday afternoon, all!! I hope you had a great weekend!! I didn't get a card done for the High Hopes challenge yesterday, which was to create a spring or Easter card (I've done a few of those recently, I just didn't get a new one done for the challenge!!). Michael woke up verrrry sick Saturday night. I'll spare you the details....I don't really want to relive it....but he's needed lots of snuggles & love the past couple of days!

Another reason I didn't get a card made is because I've been working on a little project. I'm IN LOVE with tear bears....I had never heard of them until I joined the TPHH group on Ebay.....but many of them create layouts & piecings with these bears & I knew I had to try one! My friend Sharon sent me a pattern & the mulberry paper used to make these cuties....& with her guidance I was able to create one! Here is my very first tear bear......




After I created this basic bear....I wanted to try a piecing. So....here is my first tear bear title...



I know many of you didn't understand what titles are or what they're used for when I posted my first one here.....but they are very popular on Ebay & I think they're adorable!! Some of these very talented ladies make entire 2 page, 12x12 layouts with these bears & other critters. And let me tell you...it takes a lot of time, patience, & creativity!! I'll leave those layouts for the experts...but in the meantime I'm having fun experimenting!!

Ok back to the real world!! I'm a stamper & I should probably stick with that!! I hope to get a new card done soon.....I have lots of rubber that has yet to see ink!!!

****DID YA HEAR???? The 3rd Magnolia Ink is now available for preorder at 7 Kids College Fund RIGHT HERE.....I have memorized every page of the last one & can't wait to get my hands on this one!! If you love Magnolias you will love this magazine!!!!

I hope you all have a great week!!!! C'mon....SPRING!!!!
