Ok, Ok you got me out of hiding behind the bushes watching the tea parties and no time to join in. I know it has been so long I have been away. I am not going to lie, I missed each and every one of you and being able to come to the tea party. So how fun is it that I come back when the Teapartiers are calling for Bears for MaryLou-a fellow "BEAR" lover just like me. Not only that but my fellow punchie pal Marie (Momof5sons) is the host! How could I stay behind the tree! I am going to have so much fun looking at all the bear creations-I can't wait!
My bear is a paper pieced pattern I made several years ago. I had to dig in my stuff to find her because the minute I read the challenge I knew I wanted to use her for MaryLou. All the dies are from Spellbinders including the rolled roses and leaves. I used Studio G ink from the 97 cent bin at Walmart. The roses were painted with "Twinkle Toes" Glimmer Glam by Tattered Angels. The sparkly green leaves are pieces of leaves from a Michael's Christmas spray.
It's so great to be back-I can't tell you how thrilled I am. Thanks so much for taking a look at my card. See you in the gallery!

Well done on finding your bear - I'm not sure if I could hope to find something I'd made more than a year ago - if that. And what a gorgeous card you've created to set her off to perfection in all her sweetness.

There is way too much gorgeous here to even begin to comment. But then, I need to mention the wonderful shoes and socks - they are just so cute. Glad you are back - I have been in and out recently, and Tuesdays are not the same without a Tea Party!
