Bear Love

Happy Wednesday friends and followers. It's another travel week - this time in Washington DC. Hoping I get out tomorrow as they're gearing up for a big dump of snow here. I have plenty of snow waiting for me at home - don't need to experience it in a visiting city!

Today we have a new challenge starting at Sweet Sketch Wednesday so let's get started...

Here's the fun sketch for the week.  I love the hexagon shape as the focus and the nice balance of embellishments. Here's my tip if you don't have a hexagon shape die.  Take the sketch image above, resize it larger to fit your image. Print out the sketch and cut out the hexagon and use it to trace around your image. You can cut the straight lines on your paper cutter but it will come out proper with all equal sides. This is what I did for my card since I don't have a hexagon die.

Pattie Gomez of Pattie's Creations is sponsoring our challenge this week. We love all the fun images she has created and enjoy creating card samples with her wonderful images. The grand prize winner of the challenge this week will receive two free images from Pattie's Creations.  Thanks Pattie for you sponsorship!

I created my card with "Bear Love With Balloons" from Pattie's Creations and I think he has the most loveable and goofy look to him. It's all in the eyes. He just cracks me up. This darling bear was brought to life with Copic markers. The Valentine papers were from my stash and as I'm posting this away from my craft room, I can't remember what company they're from - sorry!

Now for additional inspiration, go on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see all the Valentine inspired cards we have created using a variety of images from Pattie's Creations.

Thanks for stopping by!
