Bear Hugs for kids...

Hello everyone! I didn't get to craft much yesterday but I did get to make a couple of cards. Both the same but hey, assembly lines are awesome for card making! Chris Wooten from Turned Gypsy  asked if we could make some cards to send to hospitals for a "just because" reason I guess. Cards that can be for both boys and girls, holiday, get well, birthday, or just to plain ole cheer them up! I think this is awesome and have started making some to send her. I plan on "trying" to make one a day to send to her on the 5th. I know I can make more than 1 but this to me is a realistic goal that I know I can overcome :). I aim low so I can look better to myself lol. 
 I cut the base at your normal A2 size and mated down 1/4 inch for each mat. The only "designer paper" is the top layer from DCWV their 8 x8 Far East Stack. I think distressed it with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain. The panda & bamboo is from Create a Critter and cut at 3 inches. I distressed my Panda with black soot and used white gel pen & light brown sharpie. I also used Tim Holtz distress stickles "Antique Linen" on his tip of the hat and on the bamboo. About a month ago I found some Bamboo "Anna Griffith" brads at Tuesday Morning for $1. Was not sure what I was going to use them for but I have a obsession passion for brads so I had to have them. The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper's More Punnylicious stamp set. It says "Bear Hugs".
Inside the card is a Stampin' Up "Get Well Wishes" sentiment. And the ivory card stock is distressed as well.

I think I am going to make some more of these as I want some for myself. I think I might even try some flock on the next batch!

Thanks for looking!!

Remember I have some blog candy going on for when I reach 100 users and we are SO CLOSE!!!

  1. Hi Lisa,
    I saw your post on Marlenes and thought I'd come by and check your site. You have some cute cards and really like your post today with the panda. It's neat with that blue tint-- or it seems like it's blue.
    Anyway, i'll be checking your stuff out. I wish I had more time to make cards so i can make for the children...
    perhaps once i get done with holiday projects!

    thank you!
