Baby bear

I'm about to conquer something new in my life that will probably end up being more work than I ever imagined! Ha! A very good friend of mine is starting a high-end baby store and is interested in selling my cards! Yay! Over the next week or so, I'll be showing you a couple of the samples that I sent her with.

Here are two of the cards I sent with her as samples so she could get her partners *on board*. I used the little bear from the CC Designs set Bear Hugs - gotta love that little guy/gal (in this case). :) she is colored in with my Copic markers and highlighted with a white gel pen. I drew in the grass, and no, I am not very artistic - which is why I have to rely so much on stamps! The card base is PTI Sweet Blush in a 4.25" square. Mounted atop that is a 4" square piece of PTI vellum (top) and linen vellum (bottom). The frame is made from a gorgeous Verve set, Grateful Elegance. It is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white ep. I had to use a post it note at an angle to get nice corners. The sentiment is also from Verve, Beautiful You. It has a ton of really great sayings that were chosen by the DT members for Verve's anniversary. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. Now, I just have to decide how much to sell these little babies for. Since I always make my cards, I don't know how much people are willing to buy them for!!
Now for a little blog candy post - a requirement for entering. I am excited to see the new Charlotte and Charlie Whiff of Joy stamps! Here's a link to Katharina's blog where you can enter for yourself and a little sneaky peeky at one of her colored images.
Have a great afternoon! If I'm lucky, I'll get in a little stamping time to participate in the challenges to be entered in for more of the Papertrey Ink goodies! :o) Cross your fingers for me! ~lyss
