Happy Bearthday!

Happy Friday! I had lots of fun at my stamp-a-stack last night and I wanted to share one of the projects we made. Our theme was "kids and critters" and this card fits into both categories.

This is such a fun use of the Build-a-Bear stamp sets and there's no coloring required - yippee! I was inspired by a project I saw in a former issue of Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up!'s magazine for demonstrators. I got to break out some of my Poppy Parade cardstock and the BABW Pawsitively Prints II designer paper. I used my Crop-a-Dile to punch the holes for the ribbon - spacing the holes 1/2" apart works perfectly for two crayons. I love cards that are interactive like this, and some lucky little person will love receiving it, too.

It sounds like there is some interest in a tutorial for the toilet paper roll treat container. I'm hoping to put one together next week, so keep an eye out for it. Have a fabulous weekend! 'Bye for now!

Stamps: Beary Best Friends, Beary Nice Wishes
Paper: Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Whisper White, BABW Pawsitively Prints II dsp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Scallop Border punch, Crop-a-Dile, crayons
