Thinking Pink

Sassy Jodi wants us to think pink this week over at Sassy Cheryl's and here's my take on it.  I am in the need for some birthday cards and I had made this little bear before the challenge came out.  I rolled him around my finger for some dimension and sat him on my laptop until I decided what to do with him.  He is so darn cute and I have a very soft spot in my heart for bears.  I used to have bears sitting all over my house until a certain little beagle decided she loved them too.  AAAArrrrrrghhh.  

The last time I made this "Sneaky Bear Birthday Cupcake", my DH suggested I glitter the frosting.  Well as usual he is right, but it is so pretty in person.  The light from the camera just didn't capture the pretty color.  I just might have to stop buying Copics and invest in camera equipment and a course in photography.   NOT!!!  :)

Well anyway, I hope you enjoy him and get some inspiration of your own.  Would love to see your take on the challenges at Sassy Cheryl.  Why not, pop over to her shop, pick out an image and play along.  We have made some new friendships in the Sassy Cheryl world and would love to have you join us.  Just click here and see what it is all about!

  1. Bad beagle! Bad beagle. I'm a huge bear fan too though and so is my sister.
    What a FANTASTIC card for a birthday!
    I think your photo is great and as far as staying away from Copics. I don't think that's possible with you! Especially since you have that fantastic new carrier!
    Thanks for playing in the challenge again this week. Lovin' the pink theme.

  3. A very nice card sweety! And all that glitter puts me in heaven! hehe.
    Love it!! :0) xx

  4. Pretty in pink!! (But I wanna know what Cheryl meant by "bad beagle" LOL!)

  5. Fabulous card for a birthday, love the glitter. I doubt that your beagle is bad, the bears probably had bad wojo going on and therefore, the beagle was being a good beagle by protecting you.

  6. if you have the copic bug - its a life thing - sorry - fab card - great minds - though you cut yrs out perfectly - love the parcel idea - fab touch - enjoy yr day

  7. Oh, so cute! Yup, I had bears on stairs for while but Brady, my boy Shih Tzu loves bears as much-perhaps more-then I do so couldn't leave anything at his level!
    Thank you for joining us this week for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge!
