Knitted Bear Card


I  used several elements on this card.  I stitched around the edge, the teddy bear is paper pieced using a textured knit background I found online here.  For the feet, face, ears & heart I used a leather b/ground.  I was pleased with the way it turned out.  I used my  Memory Mixers program.  I got the idea from this tutorial video, so wanted to give it a try.  I also added some flowers, which I crocheted recently.

Wow Babs you have been busy! Your making up for the past few months! I love this! He looks crocheted! The flower is beautiful! Did you change your blog again? I know it was similar, but it looks a bit different today! Anyway, I like it!

Hi Stacie, Thanks for all your nice comments, it's always good to hear from you. You know, I think you might be right about it being crochet....oops!
It's a while since I did any cards, it takes me a while to do a mini album, so don't get much else done until the album is finished. I'm really enjoying making the cards again. About my blog - You're right, it is different....I've been fiddling around with different things for a little while now, I made a new header, buttons and a new divider too. I'm sure people who visit on a regular basis wonder what's going on, when it's different every time they visit. Oh well, guess it doesn't get boring that way.
Have a great day Stacie and thanks again,
Hugs, Babs
