Totally Missing in Action

Hi Everyone!

Sorry that I've been missing. There's a very good reason. I had bi-lateral hip replacement surgery in June. I can't tell you how many "Bless your hearts" and "BOTH hips at the same time?" I've received. I'm five weeks out and really getting around well, still walking with a cane though. I'm feeling more myself and starting to stamp again, so I wanted to share my scalloped bear card with you. I'm sorry that I can't remember where I saw this, so if you recognize it, please let me know and I'll be happy to give you credit. Note to self: do better at remembering things . . . . :-D

His face is made with the Bigz Scallop Circle #2 in Chocolate Chip and the inside of his ears and snout are Creamy Caramel punched with the 1 3/8 circle punch. His nose is the small heart from the Heart to Heart punch. The eyes are small ovals in Whisper White and the lids are Creamy Caramel. His eyeballs are 1/2 inch circle punches. I drew his mouth and whisker holes are drawn with a fine sharpie, but you could also do it with a black marker. The birthday sentiment is from Stem Sayings. I made the catch lights with the white gel pen. Yoyo Yellow and Real Red make the card base.
Hope you enjoy him!
Thanks for looking!

Wanda, let me add God Bless You! Glad you are starting to be up and about. I seriously broke my femur in April and I'm still using a cane to go upstairs sometimes. Your little bear is so adorable!! TFS!
