A Beary St. Patrick one minute …

… now a Beary St. Nick!    He’s a bear for many holidays!

Please don’t let the theme of this card imply that I have my seasons mixed up. I am attempting to get a jump start on my Christmas card making. I figure if I start now, I might be ready and have enough come late November … instead of my usual mailing my holiday cards AFTER Christmas! LOL!

Beary-Christmas by Kitchen Sink StampsTo help get my mission started, I took inspiration from SCS’s Fan Club Christmas Challenge – SCSCCMAR16 .
That is 1 Christmas card down … ??? to go!  – LOL!

Peek #2 …

I needed a masculine birthday card for my 15-year-old (YIKES! I can’t believe 15!).

I knew Multi Step Grizzly Wishes, would be perfect for a fun card but not … too juvenile (YKWIM).

I am so thrilled that I could cut Mr. Grizzly out in a few minutes.  (Die Cut digital down load now available online). To stamp him with party hat and noise maker … with no masking! Yahoo! Being able to shift his party hat around to exactly the right spot … Double Yahoo! 🙂
