For Someone Beary Special


Hello All My Crafty Friends!! 
It has been almost a month since my last post.
I finished my term on the
My Cricut Craft Room Design Team
and I decided to take a little break.
December and January are very
busy for me at work. 
I've missed you all and it feels good
to be in my craft room again!!
I have a cute little gift bag to share with you today.
I made this cute little gift bag for my daughter in law’s birthday present.  I started with a kraft gift bag.  All the paper I used is from a My Mind’s Eye 6x6 Paper Pad called Miss Caroline.  The first layer was embossed with a Sizzix folder called Cottage Style.  I inked it with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tea Dye and Mustard Seed.  The next layer is a Spellbinders Curved Rectangles Dye, inked with Mustard Seed and Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The next layer is a Spellbinders Labels 10, inked with Dried Marigold Distress Ink.  And the cute little bear in her jammies is from the Peachy Keen January Stamp  of the month.  Her face is from the same stamp set.  Isn’t she just the cutest!!
Here is a close up of her cute little face.  I added some pink chalk to her cheeks as well as some freckles.  I also added glossy accents.
The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped onto another cut
from Spellbinders Labels 10.   I added a cute little button from
3 Girl Jam and some twine.  I also added some decorative trim from
Webster’s Pages to the top of the bag, a little bling from Recollections
 and I tied a bow with some crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam.

I will be entering this into this week's Peachy Keen
PKC 13-3 :: 3-D Objects ::
Bears, Bears, and Bears, Oh My!
The challenge so to make a
 3D project using a Bear!!

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

I am having surgery on my foot this Friday so it
may be awhile before I can get back
 into my craft room, but I am am sure I will be
spending plenty of time on my comupter and
visitng all of my favorite blogs
to see what you all create :)

Thanks for stopping by today!!
