The BEAR Necessities... like SCHOOL

Cricut Cardz Ch#123... HERE

Hey, guys! I was going through the FELINE PLAYFUL Challenge Index list for some of the challenges that are going on right now and thought it would be fun to try to create a project that would incorporate 10 of those challenges. I managed to work in 9 challenges with this project. That's not bad! Here's my Postcard..... I know... I need to get back to making more tags. Tags will be coming soon; I promise!

Postcard Details:
  • A2 size postcard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Mats:
    • Black mat cut @ 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
    • Pattern mat cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
    • "Bunny" p. 63 cut @ 4 1/4" Oblong with shadow
    • "School Girl" cut @ 3 1/2"

    • Blue rhinestone on her bow is a NEW goodie I got for a Christmas gift from Studio G
    • I have no idea where that scrap piece of turquoise came from, but I wish I had some more of that color

  6. Hi, Janis! I was just thinking about going to bed and wanted to take a quick look at your blog post. I totally cracked up! Your little bear is sweet as can be, with her nerdy glasses and little "cheerleader" style dress. Cute eyes, and when I saw that she moves, I couldn't help but laugh, because that is how my eyes feel right now LOL Thanks for ending my day so sweetly with your darling card. Very pretty colors, designer papers, and layers. hugs, de
