Beary Warm Birthday Wishes

So...kind of keeping with the same theme here lately! Another one of the many birthday cards I have been trying to catch up on! This one is for my little nephew, one of the birthday's I missed earlier this month. Since he turned 3, I'm pretty sure he will forgive me for being late! I am also planning on linking this up with the January Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Winter Spirit. Anyway, this is what I made for him:
I pulled out a Lil' Inker Designs stamp that I hadn't had the opportunity to use yet, and had fun coloring him up with Copic markers.
He was stamped on a circle cut with a Spellbinders Die, then layered on some October Afternoon Holiday Style 8x8 papers.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set, but split it, and added in the "birthday" word from a different Lil' Inker's Designs stamp set. 
All of the edges are inked with Tim Holz distress ink in Antique Linen. 
And finished off with a bit of Baker's Twine and an October Afternoon button.
Hope you are staying "beary" warm wherever you are! The other day we started off the day at -28 degrees, and got all the way up to a high of 0 degrees (which lasted for a few minutes - the majority of the time we maxed out at -2 degrees!) Never been more thankful for a warm and cozy house - that's for sure!


  1. Oh MY GOODNESS, Heather! This is AMAZING!!!! My favorite part is how you incorporated our Birthday stamp from another set to custom make your sentiment! Brilliant!!!! So so great!! Isn't this set adorable? You've done great things with it here! Thanks so much for sharing!
