Are you a bear in the mornings?

Good morning and happy hump day to you all! Today is card giveaway day. If you'd like to win the card and matching envelope on my blog today, just leave a comment and tomorrow around noon I'll have random.org pick a winner!


(click to enlarge)

The image I used is the Cuppa Joe Shy Bear drawn by Lynne Stansbery. I love the little curlers in her hair! I was going to cut some little swirls from vellum and then cut a slit in the coffee cup and let the vellum swirl up through the slit so it would like steam from the coffee, but it didn't look anything like I envisioned so I scrapped that idea.

The sentiment at the top is going to be available at Squigglefly soon and I thought it was perfect with this little bear image!

Yesterday Chesney told me that they have set a wedding date. They are going to have their wedding at Garvin Gardens in Hot Springs, Arkansas on October 17th. There is a beautiful glass chapel there, and the gardens there are gorgeous. Hopefully the weather will be nice and the trees will have some lovely fall colors.

Only three more days and I will be Memphis taking my copic certification class! I'll be sure to pass on anything I learn to you all! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!

Hi Holly -

A lot of excitement going on in your life right now. Congratulations on Chesney's upcoming nuptials. And have fun at the Copic class.
I love your card. That little bear is so adorable. Now I wouldn't say that I'm a bear in the mornings, but everybody knows not to talk to me until I have my coffee. It's not that I growl at anybody, its just that I can't seem to get the vocal cords working until that marvelous, roasted nectar flows down my throat. Do you think I'm addicted to it? LOL! Have a great day!

P.S. Getting snow in my neck of New York again this morning. If I could package it and send to you - I would! 34 inches was more than enough last week - thank you very much!

I am so jealous about the copic class!! I looked at doing that, wish I'd known you were looking at it too...so much going on right now tho. Have a great time and be sure to tell us all about it when you get back :)

Love this image, it looks like me in the mornings..LOL, not really..I do love my coffee though...I'm on my 4th cup right now! The rag in her hair is what I love...so cute!

Yay about the wedding..it should be BEAUTIFUL that time of year. My niece got married in the Thorn Crown Chapel in November, and it was gorgeous!! That's in Eureka Springs. They have a glass chapel too but she got married in the big church..the one end was a wall of glass...

Shirley said...

I would love to do one of the Copic classes. I'm not sure I know enough to even go though. Have a great time.

Patricia St Martin said...

Love your card. Wonderful job with your colors. I love suqigglefly saying, I have almost all of them. Your background paper works perfect with your card. Boy things have been really quite this week.

Jeanette (Forest Ranger) said...

Have fun with your Copic Certification. Mine is the same day - hope we both learn lots!

Hugs!

Have fun at your class. I took one a couple of years ago but I don't practice and I didn't take notes in a notebook and well you get the idea. Take a notebook for notes and samples. It's key. I love love love this image and that floral paper is sooooo fun. And that sentiment is me to a tea not tee but tea.

Kathy said...

Oh Holly thanks for the chance to win...I would love this beautiful card.You rock! Hugs,Kathy

Joan said...

I love this little bear - she's so me - without the curlers - but I do have curly hair. I like that saying at the top, so I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Good luck on your certification. I'm sure you'll do well.

Jaspere said...

I just love your work and those shy bears are just adorable.

Kim said...

That's me too!! Wonderful card Holly!!!!

Heather the MooseLover said...

LOVE the card! You are so good at coloring the Shy Bears. I have that same background paper in my stash too- bought it on clearance at Hobby Lobby.

Congrats to Chesney on setting her wedding date. Our anniversary is Oct. 22- great month to marry and not as likely to be hot and sticky.

treesawardincrafts said...

I can relate to that sentiment, and I could imagine how that velum would have worked, shame. Can't wait to hear your news about the course, the hours are counting down.

Jane said...
