Hearty Hello

Hi everyone. I hope you're all having a good week so far! Before I show you today's card I just have to tell you go by Judy's blog Crazy For Cards Spot and take a look at the marvelous little book of monthly resolutions she made using different shy bears! She made it for the Squigglefly challenge to make anything but a card, and it's nothing short of fabulous. Go buy and show her some love for her creativity!

Now for my card today I used little Mia again, but this time I've let Bosko stay in the picture! I drew in some little curly whiskers too.

I did this card for the featured stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. If you want to see the card I CASED you can see it HERE

I colored this with copic markers and the words are computer generated. Here are the colors I used

It's an easy sketch, but still makes a cute card even without a lot of layers and embellishments. I'm just not sure I like the way I dotted her top though. It looked better in my mind, ya know?

Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!
