Happiness is

Happy St. Patrick's Day, 2023!

Today I'm sharing this adorable bear all dressed for the celebrations today!  He's from Di's Digi Stamps and the image is named, " Happiness is a St. Patrick's Bear'. 

 For this card, I've sized the image to just under 4" and printed him on 110# Neenah cardstock.  I've colored him using my Copic markers - which was the best part.  I do love to color! 

You may notice the brown card base looks familiar.... I've used the other half for the 12" cardstock I made the card base with for the St Patrick's mice card earlier this week.  

I found a lacy patterned green print for the matting and used the Gina Marie Designs Label Six for the pretty edges.  Then I secured both layers to the front of the card base to complete my design. 

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.
