Just Wanna Be Your Teddy Bear!

Here's a card I made for Donna's sketch challenge this week on Stamp TV, I hadn't used this little huggy bear from "Jumping for Joy" in awhile and I realized Asela's floppy limbed panda from "Zoo Animals" was the perfect size to tuck in the bears arms like a stuffed animal! After stamping the bear cut around both his arms and slide the cut out panda underneath. You will cut straight across the bear's middle from left to right to get the other arm, that's okay, the panda covers the cut!) :) I'm so happy with this image combo, with his little "lovey!" :) "big hug" is from the "give yourself a big hug!" greeting in the "Jumping for Joy" set.

I used 4 polka dot prints from the DCWV Spring Stack and a Gina K Pure Luxury Black mat on Pure Luxury White Base, then added some pink ribbon from the Floral Frenzy kit and a few adhesive metal dots I had, my round embellishment supply is running dangerously low!! Good thing I placed an order today for more of the white paper flowers! ;)

Hope you'll take Donna's challenge, still 2 more days to play, you could win a free set!

Have a good one! (((((((((((((((hugs!))))))))))))))))))

I never thought to have the bear hugging the little cutie!!! Wow I am going to have to go upstairs to see what I have that might work. LOVE IT!

It's a good life!

What a darling idea! I love it! So precious! And the polar bear's expression has all the love one can hold in one's heart for their favorite "lovey".

Great card, Mel!
