another winter card.....

Just a quickie today - wanted to play with this sketch challenge from Peachy Keen is the original, which I flipped so my bear wouldn't be staring off the card... All stamps are by smARTworks. The bear is from a set called "Polarized" (heh - is he supposed to be a polar bear?! not today...), and the sentiment comes from the "Big 'n Bold" full sheet. He's colored with Neopiko markers and Prismacolor pencils.

Here he is up close:
I want you to know that when I changed the staples in my mini stapler and closed it up to use again, the first staple went to the hilt straight into my right index finger. I don't think I've ever done that before...don't want to do it again either! Still hurts a bit, actually! The price we pay for our art, eh?

  1. Fantastic card, Dina! I love that bear image. You colored him so beautifully.

    Hope your finger feels better. The metal in staples seems to hurt more than other metals.

  2. Stab me in the arm, stab me in the leg, just DON'T let me get stabbed in my finger! ARRGHHH! It HURTS!
    Well Dina, at least the card was worth it love! It's smashing. Your colouring is amazing and I LOVE that bear!
    Thanks for playing along with us at Peachy Keen!
