Welcome little one...


My cousin is expecting her first child in a couple months and I wanted to make a special card to go with her baby shower gift. Because they are already calling the new little guy their bear, I grabbed the Birthday Bears set and hopped on over to the MFT challenge blog to see what the new sketch was. It was definitely something I could work with, I just had to scoot the domed image piece to the left so that mama bear wasn't staring off the side of the card. I stamped mama and cub in desert sand ink so I could practice doing animal stamps in no-line and I fell like I've still got a lot of practice ahead of me to really nail the look but they will do. Next I decided to color in a mountainside of fall trees behind them since her baby is due in October. I'm pretty happy with it and I think it will put a smile on my cousin's face, which is all that really matters. :)

Later gators!
