Sweet bear

There's a little story to go with this card.  When my hubby first started having lessons with his current piano teacher, it seemed that without fail, it would rain on the day that he had a lesson, and he would arrive dripping wet.  She still has fun telling the story.  For his most recent birthday she wanted a special card to give him, and so asked me to make one, preferably with a rainy theme.  We had fun with this sweet bear from Bugaboo, who's expression says it all!  Raining yet again!?!

Here are the specs:

  Colouring: Crayola & Prismacolors colouring pencils & baby oil 
  Embellishments: Flowers from my stash, thread, homemade copper dots.

I've submitted this to Bugaboo's Sweet challenge here.

  4. What an adorable card Vivienne......I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog...and then also share with you that yes you understood correctly that I did indeed start with a regular picture frame...one that I picked up at the Dollar Tree for $1.00 then used either foam board or cardboard to create my "shadowbox" part of the frame.........does that make sense????
