Many thanks to Dawn for this time appropriate challenge. It has been warm here, but overcast and a little rainy for the past 3 days. Temps are not bad, but this gray sky is kinda depressing. The Kahuna, my DH, was in Wisconsin so I have been doing a lot of crafting and watching "chic flics". My two fav's I watched were Cary Grant in My Favorite Wife and The Notebook. Although the later didn't cheer me up, but I love a good cry now and then. Here's one of the cards I made last night. It really did cheer me up and I didn't even know I was down. LOL
I love teddy bears. I have them all over my house. They just make me smile and feel all warm and cuddly inside. So when Sassy Dawn wanted to see something Bright and Cheery to Chase the Winter Blahs Away, I though"Sassy Sally and Her Perfect Teddy Bear Gift" would be perfect. When I went to find a sentiment I found this in my CTMH stamps. Doesn't this quote from Mother Theresa just about say it all? She was truly a shining example of Great Love.
I couldn't decide which Copic colors to use, so I decided to go to my paper drawer and select it first. The first paper that came to my eye was the orchid polka dots. After that, it just came together. I used stickles to glitz up the gift box, because everyone loves a present that sparkles. I love my Flower Soft, so I made a soft springy patch of grass with Shamrock Green. I punched some vellum daisies with Marvy Punches, added a pearl to the center and I was done. Sorry I can't tell you who designed the DP. The card stock is SU and I used Circles and Large Scalloped Circle Spellbinders for the shaping.
Hope this helps brighten your day. Happy Crafting, Linda
