House Mouse and Friends Bedtime Stories-The Letter "B"


Welcome to another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #74.

Today's challenge is brought to you by The Letter "B" (why does that sentence remind me of something right out of Sesame Street LOL?)

Today is Curt's turn to pick our challenge and he wants us all to make a card that has something to do with The Letter "B".  I chose this Gruffie Bear taking a lil' snooze while trying to read his bedtime story! I think Gruffie is a lot like me...when I start a book...I just hate to put it down!

So let's see how many B's I can get out of this card...Brown Bear reading his Bedtime Book!   There!

I really wanted to add  flourishes to this card instead of flowers, but I could not find my die cut...until today...oh well I sort of like the flowers with the brown pearl centers too.

I hope you can all join in this week..and make sure to pop on over and check out all the fun creations by the rest of the Team!

Sue this is wonderful! I love the image and sentiment but the papers you picked are perfectly suited for them! I have a gingham background stamp, I have to remember to use it with this color! I tend to always think "red" when I get it out! lol TFS!

OOOOOOOO....I really love this card, Sue!!! The bear is amazing and love how you colored him! I'm crazy about the way you did the sentiment and the flowers look awesome! But don't you just hate it when you can't find something you know you have?! That drives me crazy and happens to me all the time. LOL! Anyway, fantastic card!!
hugs!
