Merry Monday #265 and SImon Says Wednesday

Merry Monday is looking for an outdoor activity on our Christmas cards this week.  I don't have many but I think this works.


I taped off the bottom of some Bristol and inked the top portion with Distress Oxides, sprinkling it with water and drying.  I planned to put one skating bear from MFT but in die cutting the bear in red his foot tore off.  That's what I get for being impatient and not letting it dry enough.  I decided a second bear would cover the affected appendage. ;)  I made this one green, doing all my coloring with Zigs.  The sentiment is from EH.

I'm also sending this to Simon Says Wednesday for their Furry Friends challenge.  I guess you can be friends with polar bears. ;)  At least paper ones.

ETA: I just saw that Little Red Wagon has a penguin and polar bear challenge so I'm sending my card there as well.

My daughter and son-in-law are staying with us for a couple of days this week so that means I'd better get my craft room in order. I'm still organizing all the panels and die cuts I did while at Michele's.  Then I want to weed through my UFO drawer so I can open and close it.  You know how those things go.  You get an idea for a card and the job doesn't get done.  I'll try to be good and keep the goal in sight.

I hope your weekend is going well.  Thanks for spending a moment of your time with me.

  3. Great minds, Bobby - I used the same bear for this challenge! I'm kind of glad the first guy had an accident - the two of them look great doing their doubles routine! :)

  6. Actually, I love that there are two of these stinkin' cute bears skating side-by-side! Perfect for best friends or a sweet couple! Of course, I'd be tempted to stick the bear on with a missing foot and see if anyone noticed, haha! Have I been staying up late and making Christmas cards and getting punchy? Well, yes. I'm glad you had fun with Michele and I'm sure you'll have fun with DD and SIL and your UFOs! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if I'm not back by then!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Bobby!!! Those bears must skate over to my house next time we get together - hate that it won't be until Spring!
    In the meantime, I adore your snowy sky, and their cuddly scarves are so wonderful!
