Bear With Me, My Friend

I love bears - teddy bears, that is. I also like seeing bears from a safe distance. ;)

Today's card features a bear - Pen Pal Bear from Gerda Steiner Designs. This is the image for the GSD April Progressive Challenge.

It really doesn't look like it - but I paper pieced this image. I did do a little bit of coloring. The pencil is colored as is the snout/nose and the ground. But the bear is designer paper and every piece was fussy cut.

And I was so excited to find a scrap of "pencil" DP in my  scrap file, perfect for this fun image.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  1. Love that awesome pencil paper with this cute bear, Jeanette!

  2. I think you must have a stack of patterned paper a mile high! It always matches your card and image perfectly! SO cute.

  3. What a cutie Jeanette - he's gorgeous, and that paper is the perfect complement.

  4. Positively adorable! I haven't colored mine yet - but this is just dreamy!
