Sending You Bear Hugs

Good moring from Jan's Digital Stamps Design Team. 

It's time for our mid-month inspirational posting and today I'm sharing Mrs. Teddy Bear. 

I started by sizing this adorable bear to just under 4" tall and then printed her on Neenah 110# cardstock. I used my Copic markers for coloring.  It had been a while since I'd done  'dotted fur', which is a fun Copic technique. 

For the decorative edge, I used Quickutz, Nesting Frame 7. I covered the front of the 5 1/2" square chocolate brown card base with the festive green and red polka-dotted paper.  After securing the colored image to the center I added the sentiment from the same package to complete my card. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards. 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges: 

CD Sunday ~ Challenge #94

52 Christmas Card Throwdown ~ September Winter Fun
