Bear Hugs & Kisses!

Hello again! Yes, this is my second post for the day! Can you believe it? Well, I've been looking at the sketch over on Alma's blog since last Tuesday and tonight I decide to just go for it and give it a try. For some reason, those triangles were scaring me, and now they're my favorite part of the sketch! Go figure...lol! My sweet little Teddy and the sentiment are from the Bear Hugs set from The Cat's Pajamas. He's colored up with Copic Markers (E11, E15, and E17) and the heart is paper pieced with some Stella and Rose paper from My Mind's Eye. In fact, all of the patterned papers are from this collection. I had a lot fun with my sewing machine on this one. I added some natural Twill and I made a matching button from a clear one that I found in my stash. That about covers it. Short and sweet tonight! I'm off to get ready for my favorite show of the week...Castle on ABC! Hope that you had a happy day! Thanks for stopping by...Toodles! :D
