The Bear Baker

I won a challenge at Cupcake Craft and my prize was $5 at Digital Delights. This bear was one of the stamps that I picked out. Isn't she a cutie?

Ok, so . . . yeah, I love digital stamps. I hate coloring them in. Maybe "hate" is kind of a strong word for it. I think it's that I don't have the proper tools & I could use a coloring class or at least a few tips. Anyway, I tried chalk at first, but it just didn't turn out. I went to watercolor pencils. Hhmm . . . I am horrible at coloring - UG!

No matter, though. I finished up the card anyway. Sometimes, craft doesn't turn out the way you want. That's reality. I'm going to share it anyways 'cause the other details are cute.

I use those little punched flowers a lot. I love them, but mostly because I punched a MILLION of them out of my itty bitty scraps. I need to use them.

This card was submitted to wonderful challenge blogs - See below for links & details, so you can create your own & join in the fun!

I really need to practice, but I just get impatient. When I have more time, I'm going to spend it on practicing my coloring. I know I can do it - It'll just take practice, practice, practice :)
