Beary Sweet Valentine

 Hello. friends! I'm officially welcoming you to a brand new month! That means it's time for Color Hues Challenge #34 and Karen has chosen Red and Black for us to use. 
 I hope you're not tired of seeing cute bears on my blog because ...drum roll please.... here comes one more! His arms are open wide to send big hugs! 

This card for our young grands came together so easily using the huge die from Hello Bluebird. I love using HUGS sentiments on a card front because the general greeting spans a variety of themes or age groups and can be made more specific by adding other sentiments.

I colored the bear very lightly with Copics and added small hearts and a bowtie. I may have omitted info about the pretty DSP I used. You may not have noticed that I glued it on with the hearts pattern upside down! Oh well, it was my last sheet. I don't think the children will notice or mind. Do you?  My husband is right about me - he says if I goof at something I always have to tell about it! True. 

Now it's your turn! Please take a moment to see the inspiration from the team and play along! 

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

I love that cute little bear, and his wide open arms are definitely the perfect match for the bold sentiment! I have a similar Big Hugs set, and you've inspired me to get it out today. Valentines for my five grandchildren are top on the list this week!

Love the die cut sentiment and the cute bear too. If you hadn't mentioned the DP I wouldn't have gone to take a second look, LOL! :)

Adorable! Love the BIG die cut sentiment. I did not notice the hearts until you mentioned it. So much for my powers of observation, sheesh.
