The Easter Bear?

Hello friends and happy Saturday.  I hope you're having better weather than I am.  It's raining and the sun is nowhere to be seen.  Yuck.  I really wish Spring would get here.  I am sooo ready for some warmer weather.  But, hey, at least it's the weekend, right? 




Well, I finally finished my grandson's Easter card.  Just in the nick of time, huh?  It has the traditional Easter bunny ... wait a minute, that's not a bunny ... that's an Easter bear!  And a very cute one, if I do say so myself.  I have been seeing cards made with Teddy Bo stamps and decided I needed to order a few for myself.  I fell in love with this little cutie and wanted to use him on little Zack's card.  The image is named Easter Bunny Bo.  If you've never seen this line of stamps, you can check them out here.  Just don't blame me if you spend way too much money over there lol.  Anyway, I colored this fella with copics and prismacolor pencils.  I added some Glossy Accents to his nose and the pads of his feet and cut him out with my nestabilities.  I used my Sizzix Build a Bear embossing folder for the cardstock and added a ribbon and a little tag.  I kept my card very simple because let's be honest ... Zack is going to be far more interested in the Easter basket I made him than he is this little old card lol.




I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.  Thank you for stopping by!
