Wooly Bear

Welcome again to those revisiting and if you are here for the first time, please have a look around and I hope you find something here to interest you. I was up about 6 a.m. this morning after going to bed late last night and not sleeping well for some reason. I think I only got 3 hours sleep. I went and helped out a friend at a Community Living Week at the school she works at today. I left home before 8 a.m. to make sure I got there before 9 p.m. They taught a group of 45 students various craft activities and I helped them how to paint an artist canvas and put a decorative serviette on it and seal them and also helped out with showing them how to turn the ends of wire to hold the beads on the suncatchers they were making as well as a couple of other craft projects. One of the other ladies had them making cupcakes and a small round cake and decorating them. They all looked pretty tempting.
Well, I better get on and share this card with you and get off to bed.
I made the basecard with SU Tempting Turquoise. I used a small scrap of dotty paper on the bottom of the card and then layered a rectangular piece of blue card from stash on top. I rounded the top two corners of this piece and added a blue and white striped ribbon on the bottom of it before I stuck it to the card. The sentiment is from SU set Happiest Birthday Wishes and inked in Basic Black. The image is from a Kanban clear stamp set called, "Wooly Bears - Isobel" I stamped it and fussy cut it out after colouring with Copic Markers. I adhered it to a white circle diecut and then decorated the inside of my card with the light blue, a piece of DP layered onto a piece of the Tempting Turquoise. The sentiment on the inside is from the same set as the bear.
