"Love" Challenge



As I mentioned before I love Valentine's day! My previous post was about my design teams (MLDT) challenge using Red, White and Black. I had to really step out of my box for this challenge. I primarily make tear bears and nothing more. So for this challenge I made a title paper piecing.
I used a set of paper that I bought at Michael's craft store one year. It had all the colors that I needed in it. I layered black and red cardstock, sewed the matting and added a tear bear and some homemade embellishments to it. I think it turned out really sweet! I have it listed for only $6.99. Come on over to ebay and check my items out. I hope to see you there and thanks for stopping by and visiting with me today.

Hello! I hope everyone is doing well in bloggyland this week. I'm co-leader of the Making Lemonade Design Team on ebay and we are having a challenge this week in honor of Valentine's Day. The only catch is that we used the colors red, black and white as our theme colors. I'm loving all the great items the girls are creating. Please come on over to ebay and check us out, just type in MLDT to see all of our talented artist listings.

I love You Tear Bear

I love Valentine's day. One of the reasons I love it so much is because my husband asked me to marry him on that date in 1989. It will always be a very special date to me. Can't believe it's been almost 21 yrs since he asked me to marry him. I was barely 18 yrs old. Time sure does fly. Treasure each moment like it is the last, tomorrow is never promised.

I'm into making my Valentine Tear Bears.  Remember each bear is always made with extra thick mulberry paper and penned and chalked for added detail. It takes several hours to get them just the way that I want them.

Take a look and go over to ebay and bid on this little sweetie. She'll be beautiful on those Love scrapbook pages or Valentine Day cards. Use your imagination as to where you will use her.


Thanks for stopping by today. I really look forward to our visits.

2010- New Tear Bear Birdies


Hello! I hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas Holiday. I know I sure did. There was lots of activities and little time to be creative. Sorry, for not posting sooner...end of the year kind of does that to you.


I've created 2 new tear birdies. If you love lavender...these would suit you just fine. I thought I would try something new this year and I've always been curious as to how to make these lil' cuties. So, I sat down and figured out. Now I'm addicted to making them. LOL. Can't help it.


I'm glad that you stopped by to visit, please come back often as you know I love visitors.
