My First Love
First, and foremost, prayers going out to those affected by the earthquake & tsunami in Japan. Please consider donating to the American Red Cross so they may help the victims of this disaster.
Now, I finally got a chance to participate in a VSN weekend over at Splitcoast a couple of weeks ago. For one of the challenges, we were to stamp out our first love growing up or our kids first love. Well, I chose my teddy bear as my first love. Mr Bear is as old as I am and has seen me through some really tough times growing up - parent divorce, mom's bout with cancer and then losing her fight, among other things.
I stamped the bear from Taylored Expressions Beary Special set twice in memento tuxedo black ink and colored with prismacolor markers. Once the coloring was done, I cut out one bear to pop up later on dimensionals. Pulled out my MFT Jumbo Ric Rac Die-Namic and die cut some pink card stock then stippled it with Stampin Up! chocolate chip ink. A large prima and glitter brad finish things off.
Thanks for stopping by today.
