Sending Hugs

** Click here to see my birthday blog candy **

Happy Saturday to all of you!  I hope you're having a fabulous weekend so far.  My favorite LSS is having a big sale today so I'll be heading over to see what fabulous deals I can spend my money on ... like I need more stamping supplies lol!  Anyway, I have a new card to share today. 

Isn't this little bear adorable?  This little bear is called Daisy Bear and it's a free digi right now over at Di's Digi Downloads.  I colored this cutie with my distress inks on watercolor paper.  I used some Glossy Accents on the bear's nose and the little ladybug, and added just a little Glamour Dust to the Daisy.  My sentiment is from the Friendship Ticket Sentiments over at Whimsy Stamps.  I love their ticket sentiments and they have several sets to choose from. 

Thank you so much for stopping by.
