Day 2: The Letter B

I had a few hours to create yesterday so I got several cards done. Some I've already posted. Today Tom and I volunteer for a Girl Scout Camporee in the afternoon teaching the girls survival skills. Sunday we will have the twins most of the day, so my crafty time will be non-existent. Bummer. So if you saw my Day 1 post for Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards you know that I am dedicating this challenge to my grandson Arthur. Arthur's B words are "banana" and "booberry". He's a little fruit bat. I didn't use blueberries or bananas on my card, but I did use a bear and a bell.

So the bear image is Birthday Bear a free image from Beccy's Place. This bear has a cupcake in his hands and since I wanted to use him on my card I had to replace the cupcake with a bell for B. The bell image is from Silver Bell stamps set. I colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers then fussy cut each of them. I cut out the cupcake from the bear image and cut the arm of the bear further so I could extend the bell into the bear's arms. The sentiment is from Meljin's Designs (I wasn't able to find a link for Meljin anymore). The designer paper is from American Craft. The red ribbon is from my stash. I used a Stampin' Up! scalloped punch for the green polka-dot paper. I'm entering these challenges:
So off to camp we go. I hope it warms up a bit or at least the sun comes out. Thanks for stopping by. Stop back again soon. Happy Saturday!

Very clever Donna! I love how you've cut around the bear's hand so that he can hold onto the bell instead of the cupcake... what a great idea. The bright colours are perfect for you Christmas card, it looks so festive! Love the music score paper and the fabulous sentiment, which I actually thought you'd hand drawn at first glance. Great work!

Nice to see you have adapted the image to your own needs and it has made the bear happy too (much better for his figure too). Thanks for sharing with us at 2CraftyCritterCrazies, CarolG
