Hello, Hubby and I took a quick little getaway to the East Coast of Florida and we just got back yesterday. We had a really nice time hanging out on Hutchinson Island for a few days. The weather turned cruddy on Friday so we headed home Friday morning instead of that evening. Don’t tell hubby, but I may have orchestrated the location of our hotel, unbeknownst to him, so I could meet up with the lovely lady below. SHHHHHH! I had the best time chatting with fellow Design Team member and friend from Seize the Birthday, Julie Peddicord. We talked for two hours and I know we both could have sat there for a heck of a lot longer. Crafting meet-ups are the absolute BEST! Thanks, Jules for making my trip so much more special. I feel as If I gained a friend for life. Until next time!
Now, onto the main reason you are probably here! I am Hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Word Week and I have chosen the word MERRY, which I think will be perfect for this time of year! I can’t get enough of this Bear above…. that I don’t own by the way! It belongs to my local BFF, Carol. He is just the cutest and works on any type of card! Today he is playing Rudolph and has a gift for his girl Vixen.
I would also like to welcome Rachel Davis as our guest over at JUGS, she will be with us the next month! Welcome, Rachel! We are happy to have you!
I am also linking up with one of my favorite challenges, over at Happy Little Stampers- Christmas Challenge– with an option to Make a Scene.
A Few Card Details: This card was thrown together rather quickly, so excuse the quick coloring of Mr. Bear. Merry is from SU, the bear is Ellen Hutson, the postal dies are Hero Arts. The present is from Tim Holtz. I used Oxide inks…of course! The antlers are a stamp also from my friend. If I remember correctly, it’s a stamp set with accessories that just so happened to go with the bear.
I hope you will join us at JUGS and show us your Merry!
Take care, Nanc’

I am so glad that you were able to plan a getaway and enjoy a fellow crafter in conversation. Your card with the cute bear is delicous! Did you add the antlers? Love him!

I’m so happy that you thought of me while planning your getaway! Bwahahahaha! You made a “not so good week” so much better. I can’t wait until we can plan a crafty get together. Love your gift bearing bear. I own him and love him.

Nancy, your bear is the sweetest – clutching the present and looking all shy! Love him. Thanks so much for having me as guest designer this month!

You’ve got my Christmas card made so early this year! 😀 I love this bear, and he’s so fun with the big red nose and the gift he’s clutching.

He’s just the cutest bear Nancy. Love the touch of red with the blue and white. Such a pretty card.

That bear is so cute! I love how you ink blended the background and have him standing on a snowy hill. You chose the perfect Word for our challenge this week! So cool that you got to meet up with a fellow stamper. Take care!

This is so cute! I love your little bear turned reindeer! Great word this week! And how fun you got to meet another fellow crafter! I so enjoyed our meeting almost two years ago!
