Christmas Bears...Cupcake Inspiration Challenges #337~Bears

Hello,

Oh my goodness:  check out the adorable cupcakes that my wonderful DT and I are inviting you to draw inspiration from for Cupcake Inspiration Challenges #337.  Those *furry* faces..the light/dark chocolate noses and ears...the sweet little eyes!  I'd have a couple second thoughts about eating something with such a darling expression...but eventually, I'd cave!  If the 'real' creatures were this cutie-patootie, I'd happily go into in the woods and join in a teddy bear picnic! Click on "source" beneath the image, to be taken to the site that offers step by step instructions for decorating the cupcakes.  Maybe these would be a fun addition to your Thanksgiving dinner...



Okay, back to the challenge: I have two bear-themed cards today, although, I think 'snowflakes-themed' might be more appropriate. Eek! Anyway, I'm in Christmas-mode, therefore my bears had to follow suit, so...

One bear shaker...


and one additional teddy and snowflakes.



This week, we thank Crafty Sentiments for being our sponsor; they're generously offering the winner three digis of her/his choice.


Please head over to Cupcake Inspiration Challenges #337, where you'll see beary wonderful inspiration from the rest of the team. Some have used sponsor images; others, like me, used their own bears.  Whatever the choices, I know you'll enjoy the visit.

Looking forward to see your bears in the gallery!

I'm taking my teddies to:

Cupcake and shaker card... that is a successful combo in my books. I like the circular shaker window. That is clever design, Carol.

Your bear cards are simply adorable, and just as cute (or cuter) than those little cupcakes that inspired you.
