True Love Tear Bear/ birthday

Happy Inauguration/ Martin Luther King Day/  I hope your weekend was a good one.  Mine was, I was able to do a little paper crafting.  Have not been able to do very much, my husband had to have emergency surgery last week and the hospital was 2 hours away, so a lot of traveling and stress.  But now he is home and recuperating and I can settle back in to creating.  Yay.

I did not have much battery left in the camera, so I just took a single picture of a couple cards I made:
 The first card I made the face and hand of a Tear Bear. I got the pattern and Mulberry paper at the Beary Scrap. I used a lg retro flower punch and embossing folders for the flowers,  There are brads for the flower centers.  I  made the flower pot myself, and put a lizard that I got from the programmed, Cricut Alphabet cartridge ad the leaves and stem is from Artiste.  Papers from  loose papers in my stash and Recollections cardstock.  The bear is holding a little heart that reads true love.

The second card is made with the Elmo's Party Cartridge. I cut the cupcake out pieced it together and added Stickles on the cupcake liner.  For the balloons, i used a 1 and 3/4 paper punch, cut several colors, inked them and then punched some smaller circles for the eyes,  I then attached twine to t.he balloons and tied them with a bow.  The stamp is from  My Craft Spot's  Tiny Tags 2.

                              I hope you like todays cards, I certainly had fun making them....Cathy
