All My Love is Yours


The theme for this month's waltz is masculine cards and I made this one for my hubby, incorporating this week's sketch into the design. Yes, I know it is pink and red but he will love it! If you've just happened by, head on over to Claire's blog or the 'Mouse house to get started! Even though the Seasons of Love set has been around for a little while, I just got it and haven't had much chance to use it yet. The heart stamp coordinates perfectly with the heart nesties and makes such a beautiful focal image. Of course I couldn't leave it alone so I added some blingy rhinestones to the edges of the scallop and the center of the white heart.

Why a bear you ask? Well, a long time ago my hubby and I started calling each other "bear" (kinda like dear I suppose but much bigger and, um, hairier? lol) Anywho, the nickname stuck and one of our wedding gifts were towels embroidered with Mr. Bear and Mrs. Bear. I've had this bear charm kicking around for a while and thought it would be the perfect touch for the card to "my bear."

Supplies: Seasons of Love (WMS), Riding Hood Red, Blush Blossom, Whisper White cardstock (SU!), Riding Hood Red, Basic Black ink (SU!), DP My Mind's Eye, Rhinestones (Crafta), Twine (PTI), Bear Charm (a great bead store in Phoenix that I will never be able to remember the name of!)

  17. Love the card and the charm is so sweet. I'll have to look out for some of those charms. I call my mom Mummy Bear and I'm Baby Bear (despite being over 40 now). My hubby is teasingly called Goldilocks by us both.
