Garden Bears

Good Morning! I am finally back home and settled. Thank you all so much on the condolences on the loss of my uncle. It has been a crazy couple of weeks but things are settling down now. I did find some time to sit at my craft table and was able to get several cards made. My card today uses one of the Gruffies stamps. I think this is adorable. I colored it with Copics and used papers from Hobby Lobby. The image is rather large so I let the image be the only thing on the card.

I can't tell if the bear pushing the wheel barrel is happy about that arrangement or not. I will be sending this card to my sister at some point. We have a bunch of of home movies that my Dad took with his 8mm camera. Those films start when I was only a couple of months old up until I was about 8 or so when he got a VHS camera. It is so funny to go back and watch those movies. There is one that reminds me of this image. I am 2 1/2 years older than my sister and she is about 18 months or so--walking pretty good--but not great. I am sitting on my tricycle in my long maxi-dress and my legs propped up on the frame of the bike and she is pushing me all around our basement, while I sit there like the queen or something. 

Have a great day!

This is so cute and love that one bear is a panda, my favorite little bear. What a great idea to send this out with the movies and memories. Glad things are settling down, I am sure it has not been easy for you and your family. Have a great weekend.
