Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge

Hello everyone!  I hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.  There's a new challenge over at the Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge Blog.  The new challenge is a sketch chosen by  Helen.

My image is a Forever Friends bear that was sent to me by my friend Tammi.  I just love Forever Friends bears...I think they're all adorable.  I colored my image with my copics and prismacolor pencils and added some glitter to his hat.  I colored the hands and heart on a second image and cut them out.  I used pop-dots to adhere that piece to give it some added dimension.  You can't tell from this picture, but it really pops it up off the page IRL.  Well, that's one more Christmas card I can add to my's growing, slowly but surely.

Did you notice we changed the name of our challenge?  Starting with this challenge, you can use other cute animal images.  Of course you can still use bears...the choice is up to you.  Don't forget to stop by the Just Cute Bears and Friends Challenge to check out the beautiful work by the other DT members.

Thank you for stopping by to visit.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.
