My Favorite Things




Hello! Today I am posting an entry for Power Poppy World Card Making Challenge #4 to get Up Close and Personal.    We are to look around for some of our favorite things — make them personal — and be inspired! Take a photo of a few of those things and then, see it as a bit of an inspiration challenge — spark a little creativity with the textures, the colors, or even the objects.

Some of my favorite thing are represented in this photo taken by my DH - Teddy Bears, Flowers, Gardening, Birds and Birdhouses, and Fall Leaves and Colors.   We love and collect Teddy Bears including cuddly ones and concrete ones we have in our garden. The bears in the photo are Stony and Sharon (as in Sharon Stone) with Chipper. A few of the other garden bears are Rocksand and Brownstone.  Yes, we name all our bears!  I also love flowers of all kinds and the beautiful colors of fall.  I used these items as inspiration for my card shown below.


Stamps used are Power Poppy Sunny Harvest for the bouquet, Hen & Chicks for the sentiment. The Bear is an old PSX stamp, one of my faves.  Used Memento Rich Cocoa and Espresso Truffle and Copics Y02,06,13,17,21,YR 14, YG 09,63, E00,43,44,47, and Memento Red Marker. The bouquet was fussy cut and attached with Pop up dots. Papers used were GKD White CS and a pattern paper from scraps.
