tear bears!

I just wanted to do a quick post of a card I put together using my Cricut expression2 and the loaded cartridge Cricut Alphabet, some buttons and ribbon and an adorable Tear Bear Penguin called Penny.  The penguin is made from extra thick Mulberry paper which was made by Susanne at Handmade Beary Tear Bear Critters.  You can find her on Facebook.  I purchased the penguin and other critters, I plan on trying to make them myself soon.  I think they are so cute. There is a short piece of twine and squares cut out for the banner.  Hope you like it as much as I do:)  I hope to be able to do more cards soon, I can not post as much as I like, my husband has primary progressive M.S. and care for him does not allow for a lot of craft time.
Happy crafting,  Cathy

  2. That is soo cute! I love the cutie penguin:)


  3. This is the 2nd time I've seen you post these adorable little critters. I want to try them. Are they hard to make and how do you get them fuzzy? I viewed a tutorial on how to make them but it was just about tracing and wetting the paper it didn't "finish" the little bear that was being made.

    1. Tami B. go to The Beary Craft. This is where I buy supplies and they have videos and tips and great paper. Thank you Cathy

  4. This is to cute!! love the fuzzy fur. You are so talented!!!
    My prayers go out for you and your hubby.
    Take care. Hugs
