Build A Bear Back to School

Hi Everyone:  we are experiencing a little bit more of summer.  The last week has been pleasant and some days HOT.  This weather is supposed to continue for a few more days.  We are lucky here in the BC interior as places on the coast are experiencing record rainfalls with people having to be evacuated and some towns completely cut off because the roads have been washed away.  I sure do sympathize with those people to have their lives in an up roar. 

I still have some room in the October 15th class.  Please contact me for further details.  Don't miss out!

The cards that I have for the post today are from the Build a Bear.  They are so cute and there are so many things and themes that you can do around them.  They are great for invitations to birthday parties, making colouring books, great for Moms, Dads and Grandparents and generally anyone who has children in their lives.  Or let the kids make their own invitations and cards.  What fun!

Stamps: Beary Best Friends (W-118052), Season of Hugs (W-120823), Cute by the Inch (Level 2 Hostess)
Paper: Textured Whisper White, Poppy, Watercolour, Whisper White
Ink: Black Stazon, Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Various Markers, Poppy ribbon, eyelets, Blender Pens, Curly Label Punch

To give some dimension to the apple, I stamped, coloured, cut out and attached with a dimensional.  The flowers on the girl's dress were stamped using the Season of Hugs stamp.  The word 'hi" is highlighted in the "ABC"s with a marker to stand out.

Have a great evening.

Until next time....
