Teddy bear for baby

Hello stampers,

I don't know about you, but I seem to make a LOT of baby cards.  Maybe it's just the age bracket I'm in?  Or the fact that everyone at work (and Chris's work) knows I make cards and asks me for them.  Either way.  I am always on the hunt for baby stamps and paper.  I don't know why, but they seem very hard to find.  I'm super excited to get the ones I just ordered from Lily of the Valley which are GORGEOUS.

Until now, this Popcorn bear stamp has been my absolute favourite.  I'm not even sure if it's still available as I bought it quite a few months ago.  And I normally avoid animals, because I am "fur-challenged" shall we say, in the Copic department.  I did get some great learning in Suzanne Dean's class this summer - and hopefully I've put it to good use on this card.  This one is for one of Chris's colleagues (I made three in the same night).

But I was SUPER excited to find this paper!  Most paper is gender-specific and it's hard to find gender-neutral paper.  This is the new Kaiser Craft Bonjour paper which I think is gorgeous - and available in my favourite 6x6" pad.  In the back it even has punch out tags!  How perfect is that!

On this card, I've also used twine from The Twinery & a Tim Holtz tag.  And - for the first time - I've added Prismacolor pencils to my Copic colouring!  SO excited about this.  And I'm slowly getting better at it (I think).

Happy stamping!
