Happy Birthday Bears

Happy Sunday!
I sure hope that this finds you all well. My goodness - the week got away from me!
I was out of town one day, filled in as church secretary another day, and so all know how it goes! No matter what plans we make, life happens, right?

One of our great guys at church had a birthday this week.  One of the things he likes to do is go up north someplace and bear hunt.  He enjoys the hunt, but he loves just watching the bears in their natural environment, too.  I purchased this stamp at a stamp convention that some friends and I attend each year. This was purchased several years ago, and there is no name on the stamp anyplace, but it was SO fitting for this gentleman.  For the inside of the card, I repeated the largest nestie in white, cutting the bottom off straight, and distressed it with around the edges before writing the sentiment inside.

Tomorrow, I will be showcasing two of the new release dies at Die-Versions, and will have a photo tutorial for you.  Hope you can drop by - you're going to love this new release! It's all about weddings!!!

Take care, and thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.

This is a fabulous masculine card. The wood grained paper looks like a frame. Great coloring of the bears too. I'm sure your friend loved it.
