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!

Thanks for stopping by & have a inky day!

Bountiful Pilgrim Teddy Bears

Thanksgiving Blessing

Multi Step Teddy Bear Wishes – just had to dress for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

I created their outfits using the silhouette and colored them with Copic markers. You may also notice, the girl pilgrim has both of her arms down … amazing what you can do with a little scissor surgery and a collar. 😉
