Bear Hugs

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. 

I haven't been posting regularly on my Blog, and it's not that I haven't been creating. I have been, so my goal is to remedy this situation. I made this thinking of you card for my precious little granddaughter. Wish I could be there to give her the hugs in person but for now I have to settle for virtual hugs on a card. 

We use FaceTime technology a lot, so I am thankful for that. It keeps us in touch with each other. They are coming for a visit the end of July but I hoping to get out there before that. I will see if it works out.

Now let's move onto my card for today. I created this one for Color Challenge #889 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use bumble bee, granny apple green and basic gray for her color trio. Optional was to use s vellum. I used it on the bee's wings.
bumble bee, granny apple green, basic gray

I used a honeycomb stencil for my background with bumble bee and fossilized amber inks. The tree limb, hive and bees are from the Garden Bear die from CottageCutz. I used basic gray on the hive opening and the bear's nose.

The bear is actually a polar bear from the Polar Bear Fishing die, but I cut him in brown cardstock and it changed his look. His honey pot is from the CottageCutz "sweet Valentine" stamp & die set. I colored the pot with Stampin' Blends.

Cut my "hugs" phrase and sat the bear on top. Scattered a few enamel dots and that completes my card.

And that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
