Yellowstone Bears

Here's the little project I took with me to Yellowstone - 24 three inch bears from the Teddy Bear Parade cart all cut out and ready for assembly.

My DGDs and I cut this same Pirate Bear a couple of years ago using the Baby Bug.  Let me tell you that using the Explore was a whole different and much easier experience! 

*  All the pieces arrive on the canvas at the same time rather than having to pick out each piece individually to place on the mat 

*DS colors the images so you can see exactly how each one fits together

*Resizing is a one time adjustment.

He is sooo cute!

I attached a small bag of miniature gummi bears behind each one.  I apologize for the out of focus photo.  While C and I were assembling the bears, our DHs were on a Photography Tour of the park and I haven't been able to recover my usual camera settings. : (   

Here's a picture of a (real!) bear he took on the tour.  C and I took a Wildlife Tour later that week and WE saw two yearling grizzlies AND a momma bear with two cubs so we felt that we won the prize for bear sightings!

Thanks for visiting with me today : ) Christine

A Beary Happy Birthday!

Cocoa is NOT happy with me today!   Here in the PNW we have, thankfully, escaped the effects of the Polar Vortex but have endured a typically wet and soggy winter week instead.  I played in my craft room for most of the day supposedly reorganizing my clear stamp collection but actually making this birthday card for a three year old.  Cocoa finds the craft room very boring!

I do like cascade cards.  There are 6 little vignettes contributing to one interesting whole.   KWIM?  Each Bear represents a stage in the life of the three year old and it was fun putting together the baby, and the toddler in her nightgown and bunny slippers, and the little birthday girl with her pink dress and cupcake.  I used the font from A Child's Year for the numbers on the cup cakes.  The 'bear' sentiments come from MCT.

This weeks' challenge over at Fabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is use a sentiment.

Since I have three sentiments on my card, I think I qualify!  

Thanks for visiting with me today!   : ) Christine
