You're the Beary Best Card for any occasion

I made this card back in June, but haven't been able to post it until now. Life has been crazy. I gave this card to my husband and father in law for Father's Day, and then I made 30 of them to be used as Thank You cards.

This card uses the Close to my Heart Back Country Level 2 paper packet, Outdoor Denim, Barn Red, and Olive Cardstock, Cocoa ink, Cocoa, Chocolate, Desert Sand, Grey Flannel, Barn Red, and Olive Markers, Edge distresser, Outdoor Denim Ribbon Rounds, White card bases from Hobby Lobby.

This card is very versatile and can be used for male or female, and any occasion. I hope you like it. I will be getting ready for my Recession Relief Retreat, so I will be posting more items as I get them done.

Fancy Die Cuts Botanicals

I used these to make some quick birthday cards for my Relief Society Group. I was able to make 25 cards with this set. They are so easy to use, and cheap. You punch the flowers stems and leaves out of the 3 sheets, and start piling them on top of each other to make different flowers, and then you use our Bonding Memories Glue Pen $4.50 to adhere them. The colors are Tulip, Juniper, Sorbet, and Cocoa Ink for the edges. I used the Spring Blossom Paper Packet for my card fronts I cut them 4x5 1/2, and mixed and matched the flowers for them. The card dimensions are 4x5 1/2. I got the bases in a package of 50 with envelopes from Hobby Lobby for $6.99. The card bases are perfect if you don't want to use your cardstock for the bases. It saves a lot of time. You can order the Fancy Die Cut Botanicals for $3.95 and any other products mentioned from my website at:

My own creative blog.

I decided to start a creative blog to post my artwork and creations that are made by me. I probably scraplifted some of them, but others are tweaked so that they are one of a kind. My goal is to post one new project a week, we'll see how that works out, but I am going to work really hard at it.
