I didn't have a chance to play along with Taylor's sketch last week, so I had to play along this week! I loved this fun sketch and couldn't wait to use Taylor's new stamp set: Beary Special!
This stamp set is part of the Taylored Expressions Giving Tree Charity program. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this stamp set and also the Beary Special Accessories stamp set benefit the Hospital for Sick Children (known as Sick Kids) which is a health care community dedicated to imrpoving the health of children. You can check out more information about this awesome charity here. Nancy McKinny who is the artist behind these beautiful stamps has a special connection to this organization which tremendously helped care for her son Henri. You can check out this post on Nancy's blog for this beautiful story.
I simply LOVED this image of the teddy bear in the backpack (actually I love ALL the images from this stamp set :) but this one is just sooo sweet :) and all the sentiments in this set are just so special. I paper pieced all of the pieces in this set from Sugared paper set from Basic Grey.
Paper: Sugared Basic Grey
Ribbon - Willow Satin (5/8" Satin)
Ink: Bravo Burgandy SU!, Martha Brown
Accessories: Circle punches, Spellbinders die set, silver marker, paper piercer, Button from Bag-O-Buttons: Hall Pass, corner rounder
I loved making this card - and love this little teddy bear. My son wants to name this little teddy: Sweetie Bear :) It is so cute to hear him say the sounds "Sw" because he has a slight lisp - so it made it sweeter :)
Do you have any fave memories of your teddy bears growing up? My favorite teddy was originally named: Teddy (lol!) and I LOVED snuggling and cuddling him - even to this day when I go to visit my parents - I still snuggle him :)
Okay - off to clean up after breakfast - we seriously need to get a dog so that I don't have to keep cleaning up the floor :) lol!!
Thank you all so much for visiting my little corner :)
Sunny smiles and hugs,
