Birthday Bear

I've been absent for a short time as we traveled to Cincinnati to help my FIL with some things around his house. So we spent the weekend after having the twins all day Friday. We intended to come home early this morning but it rained and his roof was leaking so we stayed to try to help the leaking until we can get a roofer in to put on a new roof. Always something going on. So it was later this afternoon until we got home and I needed to go to the grocery as I left my FIL with groceries from our house. This evening I had a chance to sit at my craft desk for a bit. I am behind on my Spring Card Class 2 but decided to deviate tonight and do a birthday card.

The image is Birthday Bear from QKR Stampede. I colored his with Spectum Noir markers and fussy cut the image. The background paper is from Paper Adventures and has a shimmer to it, die cut with the Blueprints 13 stitched die, but I embossed the paper with birthday balloons embossing folder.  There are two different ribbons stacked together. The bottom ribbon that is the teal color is stitched across with a brown stitching. The top ribbon is a very sparkly clear ribbon that gives the card lots of sparkle. I added a sticker embellishment from a Miss Elizabeth's birthday set (flower with a ribbon). The bear and the flower are popped up with foam tape.I am entering these challenges:

QKR Stampede: anything goes
Catch the Bug: bingo (3 layers, die/pinch, embossing, or ribbon, players choice (animal image), stitching)
Incy Wincy Designs: anything goes

Our week suddenly filled up really fast today. One of our volunteer positions is asking for help on Thursday and Friday to pick up school supplies from schools south of us that are closing their doors. So Thursday and Friday we'll be traveling and packing up supplies to bring back to Teacher's Warehouse for distribution to other teachers. Wednesday we have the twins all day. So I hope to get some more cards done tomorrow. Time to catch up on class assignments. LOL! Our area is beginning to open up some things. We are not in a hurry to rush out to anything right now. We'll definitely be wearing masks for quite some time. Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Take care!
