Sweet Winter Bear....

Hello & Happy Friday Everyone! YAY! 
The Weekend is here again!!! October is
just about over and we are heading straight for
the Holiday Season! I'm so excited! I LOOOVE
the Holidays! It really IS my favorite time of year!

PLUS - I'm having 2 Christmas' this year!
YES! I said TWO!!! :) My son who is an
AMAZING MARINE - will be home for a few days
this next month - Which you ALL know how
Excited I am to see him! :)  (Jumping Up & Down)

Since he'll only be home for a very short time
I thought I would combine Thanksgiving & Christmas for him

YES! that means a lot of work on my part - But...
My boys are always worth the extra work/effort! :)

This will be our last visit with him for awhile ... (SAD FACE)
But he has a duty to our country, and I must share him ---
I don't want to share --- But they say it's nice to share! (WHATEVER)!!

Anywho... As it gets closer to his arrival date, I'll let you
all know... cause I will probably be offline for a little bit! :)

In the mean time, let me share another Holiday card with you!

Isn't this little guy ADORABLE??? Super CUTE Bear! :)
He's got some Sparkle on his Hat & Cheeks! :)
The Winter Bear is an SVG file from KaDoodle Bug Designs

Oh... and that background paper - isn't Paper!!
It's WASHI TAPE!!! EEK!!!!
How cool does that look? Seriously? I just LOVE it!
I purchased some Christmas Washi tape from Micheal's
awhile back when they had a SALE of course! (Wink Wink)
And this is from 1 entire set - it had 9 rolls in it

--- Products Used on my Card ---

Cardstock - Stampin' Up, Bo Bunny, Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Assorted Washi Tape - 9 roll Pack (Recollections)
Clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen - On the hat & Heart cheeks

I hope I've given you some inspiration this week
to get started on those pesky holiday cards!

  6. What a ADORABLE card!! Love the cute bear and the gorgeous washi tape background!!! It's awesome that your son is home for the holidays!!! Have a great day,

  7. Awwww!! Theresa this is oh so sweet!! What an amazing collection of washi you have! I found myself getting joining the washi craze but I dont have any Christmas themed ones. I love your creations my friend! Sorry I haven't been able to visit blogs much lately. But I do look forward to when your projects pop up on my phone when I am scrolling facebook!! Oh and to answer your question, it takes me a few days to do a flip album depending on how much time I have. But I would say about 8 hours of actual gluing and maybe a couple hours brainstorming on what to use, digging through paper and embellishments etc. I hope you have wonderful weekend and a very Happy Halloween!!! Hugs!
