Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Wow it is Thursday already!!!

Hi everyone,  It has been a long week and I don't really feel like I have accomplished much but I had to get a card done for Elaine's wonderful challenge this week to use fabric on your card for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  Well, last week I saw the cutest bear Dawn B. had used for her challenge card.  I love bears and snowmen, so had to check out the bears.  Bought the Berry Bear set and had to use this little cutie for my card,  Thanks Dawn!!!:  
Don't you agree these are the cutest bears?  I colored him with copic markers and then took my blender pen and tapped it all over the body.  Next I took a "nasty" cloth ( that is really what they call it in Copic Certification class) which was a square of a terry cloth wash cloth and brushed my brown copic marker onto the fabric and pressed it over the body giving the fur like texture.  You probably have to click on the image to enlarge it to see the texture.
The TopNote die was sponged with distress ik and mounted over a MS scalloped edge border piece I placed behind the main image.  The dp is Eskimoo Kisses from my Christmas stash last year but I thought the trees were appropriate.
My fabric is felt, My sister, Peg, was kind enough to bestow upon me her felt pieces left over from a craft project she had done.  I have a whole box and intend to use it with my die's but just don't usually remember it is there until I have used something else.  I wanted a more masculine flower? so used 3 different cuttlebug circle dies for my flower and sewed a button in the center.  I think it is really cute.  I may have to do that more often.
I really appreciate everyone's patience with my blogging.  I am slowly getting back to creating.  I went back to work on Sunday and am struggling a little to have enough energy to do everything I want to so I have had to cut back and go to bed earlier.
Enough of that,  Thanks for stopping by and be sure you check out the rest of the DT's cards, I haven't even gotten a sneak peek this week so they will be a surprise to me too LOL!!
Have a great day.
