can't bear to be without you

Hello!  I am back today to share another card that I have listed in my Etsy shop.  It is another bear card but I love the bear trend too!  And the sentiments are so sweet!

So these 2 bears are from Birdie Brown's Birthday Bears stamp set which is available from My Favorite Things.  The sentiments are also from that set.  The tree stump and the sentiment on the tree is from Lawn Fawn's Mom & Me set.  I was using both stamp sets making some cards when I realized the little bear would be cute sitting on the tree looking at the big bear.  And that's how I came up with this card.

I love it when I can mix and match images/sentiments from different companies and stamp sets.  I created the background by blending some distress inks.  I think I need to invest in more colors but really if you're on a budget you really don't need many colors, just the basics to create a background.

I used a Spellbinder's circle die to make a template for the sun.  The images were stamped, colored, fussy cut and glued onto the background.

I have been trying to get back into card making mode but I guess I need something like an impending deadline to get my butt into gear.  All I want to do now is take a nap! 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend!

Your card looks so professional. Now I need to get that stamp set...hehehe! I love the background. Besides mixing the two stamp sets...clever, I noticed you made a great shadow under the stump which anchored everything. You have excellent card making skills.
