It's Your Birthday! Grin and Bear It!

Are you ready for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion?! It's that time, again, and we have a fun new theme for you this week!

This time, our theme is "Grin and Bear It." We want to see all of your projects featuring a bear. We know people love to use bears on their cards and things, so we felt like this would be a fun theme. The possibilities are endless!

Come on over and play along with us at Craft Your Passion. Our sponsor this week is the oh so talented Kayla, of Purple Panda Designs. Play along with us for your chance to win!

Kayla gave the DT the most adorable bear images to use on our projects this week. My card uses the sketch at Inspirational Card Sketches, Stamp With Fun and at Sketch and Stash. for the layout. I used some fun papers for this one, too! The image is colored with Promarkers. I've used papers, a punched scalloped circle and punched scalloped border from Stampin Up. I got these goodies as one of my freebies from the recent Sale-A-Bration catalog, and dressed them up by adding glitter and sparkle with a clearstar gelly roll pen. The large adhesive pearls were part of the 99 cent bling I bought at the Scrapbook Expo I just attended over the weekend. Gotta love that bargain bling!
