Welcome - BILLIE BEAR!

Ah....how cute are these new Billie Bear images from Ladybug Crafts Ink!?! Totally cute eh?

And you got it - I'm the surprise; I haven't crafted for about 5 1/2 weeks - since my surgery 2/13/13 and believe me, I'm not even close to being back full-time, but it was nice to sit down and color a bit...and in this case, I used Copic Pointillism as shown by Michele HERE - her work is just AMAZING! I like it - and I decided to do the sky the same way to make it a bit more unique.

I always love to start with a sketch (SSSC180) and Karen's was just perfect for Billie. This is just a wee little card - 4.25" x 4.25" so the image could take center stage! Each flower has yellow gel at the center and black enamel for Billie's eyes - fun little 3D effects. The inside says "just swinging by with a birthday hi".

Hope you enjoy the new images and at the great introductory price Kerry offers - go ahead, pick up one or two, you won't feel guilty!! :D

Hugs, ~M.

Very sweet scene. Like the dotted background. Really makes the little bear stand out. Like the dimension of his eyes, too! So cute.

Thank you so very much for playing with us in this week’s Fuzzy Friends Challenge at Stamptacular Sunday! So very happy that you could join us this week.
