Have a BEARy Merry Christmas

Hi, everyone.

I was a vendor at a local craft show today, with proceeds benefiting Operation Write Home. One of the cards for sale was the little polar cub shown below. It is a tweaking of a card I made earlier in the year. The inspirations for both cards were a tutorial for a punch polar bear and a photo of polar cubs playing in a snow/ice cave.

Distress Ink core paper, Bazzill white and black cardstock
punches: EK hole, Paper Shaper circle, Emagination tree
additonal punches: Recollections snowflake, SU word window
fussy cutting: candy cane, Santa Hat, snout
Creative Memories oval cutting system: ear
techniques: sanding, inking, paper tearing

Think I'm going to link this one for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to make a project featuring a tree. Truth be told, the cub is the main attraction of this vignette, with the tree serving as a supporting cast member. But, I can't resist the temptation to share this little guy with fellow CAS lovers.  :)

Parting Thoughts

Now that the craft shows are over, I need to get back to those OWH cards. It's Valentine's time on the OWH calendar.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
