Critter Sketch & Crafty Sentiments Challenges and GO PACK!

The sketch at Critter Sketch this week was a great one so I just had to play along. I used my new Tim Holtz papers and flowers and I just love how it turned out. The bird is from a Fiskars set.

I am going out of town to babysit for my darling grandson and won't be back until just before my Packers play in the Super Bowl. So I decided to share one more card today that works great for the challenge at Crafty Sentiments to use bears on our cards.  I was organizing my punches and came upon this bear punch I have never used since I "had to have it" several years ago. I thought he might make a cute Packer teddy bear and so I made a #12 for my grandson (Aaron Rodgers our quarterback for those of you not Packer fans..) and a #52 for me (my other favorite: Clay Matthews). I made mine into a fun card with stickers and diecuts and an old football stamp. I have to say one more time: Go Pack Win!

Stamping and Packer smiles, Karen
