Bear With Me


Bear with me - one more Valentine and then I think this will be the last of the litter.  This cute little digi is from Deedee's Digis and I just love it to pieces!  The little bears are so precious and just perfect for a sweet Valentine's Day card.  You can find these little guys in Deedee's SHOP along with so many more fabulous images.  This one is pre-colored, called You Have My Heart, and it made into a very quick card for a last minute Valentine card for one of the granddaughters.

Deedee also has a progressive type challenge.  Check out the blog for more information on how to enter and earn a free digi each month.

I've used some Real Red card stock along with scraps of patterned paper.  The banner......UGH!  After fiddling with this thing for about 30 minutes I just finally threw in the towel and gave up.  I'll be the first to admit......I do not know how to make a banner look like a banner!  In my mind it looked so cute and just like someone knew what they were doing.....but......didn't happen.  It's still pretty cute just not like I think a banner should look.  I really don't think the three year old grand will know the difference though, so it is what it is. 

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

Lynn, this is just perfect for a three yr. old. I think your banner is just darling...no fretting needed. You've used such pretty dp, too. I think it is a winner!

I admire your attempt at getting a banner to hang nicely. I think it gets the idea across and is pretty nifty to boot. I like the overall card too. I've finished making Valentine's cards but I still have some to share, but I think you're right. I think folks are getting tired of them. St Patrick's next?!

You did such an amazing job with this image. I love the papers, the layout and the embossing. I have to tell you I've never even attempted to make a banner, so congrats to you for even trying. I happen to think you did a super job with it. You did Deedee proud! Have a terrific day.

What a sweet image! If I could color, I'd go for this one! Your heart banner caught my eye first thing! I love it! Looks like you know what you're doing and just don't know it.

Both of these cards are playful and cute. The first is definitely a boy card. The second could be either.
