My Techie Bear

Hello, sweet friends!  Today I finished a card and posted it for this week's Featured Stamper and Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. My goal has been to post at least one card each week.

I started this card on Sunday for this week's Featured Stamper, Mary J, who has a beautiful gallery filled with lovely cards. And she sure can color. I used the same bear named James, but my bear is working hard on his laptop...hehe! I decided to use this week's Sketch Challenge to finish the card and added colors to match the designer paper I chose. I added a small scallop border on the center piece, paper-pierced (have I can resist?), and added some DMC perle cotton with a button...and finally the sentiment. 

James - Laptop, Lili of the Valley, Designed by Cheryl Scrivens, CherylQuilts

This card is headed to New Jersey as a thank-you note to our youngest son John who visited us last week. He is a teddy bear and gives the very best hugs...and we had lots of them! He is very techie, and we had such fun during our visit. Miss him already, but he is coming again next year...and he's coming earlier so we can make a spring season baseball game - yay!

Thanks so much for "stopping by" and sharing a comment, thought or question, and I hope you have a wonderful week! And warm hugs to all!

Blessings,

This is just SO adorable, Cheryl, and I LOVE that you're sending it to your son. It's got those masculine colors, but such a sweet image. Looks just like it's from a mom to her son. The Teddy bear looks so huggable! I love everything about your sweet, darling card!

Seems strange not to see something floral in this post. LOL Doesn't really matter because whatever you create is wonderful. James is probably my favorite "stamp" bear an you've sure designed him as awesome card to live on. Hugs!
