Birthday Bear

Hi everyone! Wow, what a cold snap we're having here! I do love the colder temperatures, but with the wind making it a chilly 7 degrees it's cramping my morning walk with Riley. She still gets plenty of exercise outdoors during the day while I'm at work, but my legs (and butt!) are in dire need of our walk!

I'm working on birthday cards for my stash, and this sweet little Baby Bear Roses image by Diane Carubia was calling my name to be colored!

(click to enlarge)

Isn't he just the sweetest little thing? I colored him with Copic markers and chalked some blue around him. I added a touch of sparkle with some stickles on the butterflies. I went with my favorite purple color and tied some eyelash yarn around the paper. The sentiment is my favorite Birthday Wishes by Jess Holland.

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge on Squigglefly's groups at Papercraft Planet and on SNR Card Universe! With all the football bowl games going on lately, Heather and Pat have decided to have a bowl of their own! They will be hosting the Color Bowl! There will be a total of three prizes and you have TWO WEEKS to get your projects completed. I hope you will be joining in on the fun too, and even if you don't play along come see all the eye candy!

Yesterday my sister-in-law sent me a link to video of an amazingly talented drummer. This little boy is only FOUR YEARS OLD, and he can drum like nobody's business! The facial expressions he makes are so cute. Anyway, I thought it was cute enough to share. If you can't see the video from my blog, you can view it on You Tube HERE

I doubt there is any question as to what this child is going to do in his life!

Well, enjoy your Thursday and thanks for looking!
