Simply a bear!

I don't often do a clean and simple card but it seemed to suit the occasion with this one. Male cards are tough!. This one was for my son's girlfriend's uncle. I found the Uncle sentiment online and decided to just go with it in the corner with the bear. I am not a lover of buttons but what else can you put on a male card lol.
Image - Teddy Bo
Papers - Cuddly Buddly
Embellishments - faux stitching, buttons
Medium - he is coloured with promarkers and a pencil
I would like to enter him into
The Teddy Bo Challenge - clean and simple

Forever Friends - use a sentiment
PanPastel - add two buttons (well times 3 for me, if its not ok just remove me)

Hello Pinky!

Love your super stylish make card! Buttons and staples and the main thing for male cards for me (well, when I can find my stapler!).

Loving your CAS style for this, as you say, it really suits it.

Oh Pinky, you have THE KNACK in the coloring area. I wish we lived closer! This is the most adorable teddy. I collect them, so I am an expert...and THIS is stellar! haha. You really are amazing though at your blending. Do you use a light on one side or is it just sheer brilliance...seriously. And lucky uncle Noel...again, another selfless card. You know SO MANY people Pinky! I think you are a wonderful person. xox Samara

SAMARA NAVI said...

I will get "killed" for saying this, but I have the entire set of "copics" but I think it is time to "take a look" at Pro Markers. Can you please write me and tell me what you find is the difference, other than your amazing coloring! Oh, yes, that must be included in your explanation. You have my email hunny bunny!
