Back again

OK - I haven't been doing too well keeping up with the blog this year so far. I do have an excuse. I had the stomach flu - I haven't been that sick for a long time and hopefully won't again for another long time. Anyway, here's my last thank you note (at least until my birthday in 9 days):

My mom and dad got me Stampin' Up's Under the Stars for Christmas. I paired the bear with this great camping paper from Cloud 9 Designs (it's from Fiskars, who knew?). The base of the card is cranberry crisp, layered with plaid dp, black and camping dp. I stamped the bear with jet black ink and colored him with copics. He is standing on a nestie-cut circle made with the camping dp, layered with black and nestie-cut ovals in plaid and cranberry crisp (wow, just seeing that makes me want to make fruit crisp for dessert tonight, but I think I'll hold off a while longer before trying food like that). The ribbon is twill and I stamped the sentiment on cranberry crisp layered with black and punched with SU ovals.

I just love that bear and love to get ideas regarding how to use it. It was one of those sets I had to have and have used it once. *LOL* TFS
