Birthday Bear....Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #253, My Favorite Things~Card Design Superstar, Seize the Birthday~Frames, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #315~Birthday

Hello,

Super speedy post with a card for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #253.

Another of MFT's bears came out to play (he's the brother of the one in my Inkspirational post, who was heading off to a party as well...). 


As you can see, I adapted the sketch just a bit...although, not that I look closely, the edges of the frame die do extend on either side of the bear. Hmmm...maybe I didn't modify as much as I thought I did *grin*

NOTE; Honoured and thrilled to be selected as a favourite over at Freshly Made Sketches! THANK YOU!!

NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be selected as a Chick Pick at 4 Crafty Chicks #315! THANK YOU!

NOTE: Thrilled and honoured to be receive "Birthday Honours" at Seize the Birthday! THANK YOU!!

Since nearly all my images - the bear + cake + sentiment, the peek-a-boo window frame, and the splatters on the banner - are all MFT, I figured I'd share this little dude in the My Favorite Things~Card Design Superstar


The gallery is filled with stellar designs and I fully realize mine is pretty rudimentary, in the grand scheme. But who knows...maybe Mr. Bear with his yummy cake will catch someone's eye...Have to take a risk once in a while *grin*
