Birthday Bear Hugs

A special card for a special Dad!!!

My Sweetie's Dad was born on Valentine's Day-80 years ago this year! Now that is a birthday to celebrate!!!

I really wanted to make a special card because I know he always looks forward to his mail during this week.  Last year I was late and he was pretty disappointed. Not going to make that mistake again this year!!!

I used a great combo of Art Impression stamps, action wobblers and a fun Valentine forest cut file from the Silhouette Store(see link below).  They all came together for a great scene, don't you think? I can just imagine this cuddly bear meandering out of the forest just in time to give out big birthday bear hugs!!!  The top half of the bear is mounted on a action wobbler and does a pretty good jiggle /wiggle too! I also cut out the word Birthday with my Silhouette and mounted it on white matting and then added a little Wink of Stella glitter on his heart britches and bowtie! Very stylin'!

 I love the thought of a forest full of pink heart leaves.... 

Thanks for stopping in-I Love it when you visit! I do have a couple more Valentines to try to squeeze in this week, just depends on my free time...

I've been under the weather for almost a week and have missed a lot of your post. I changed email addresses a few months back and I think I'm not getting your postings. I need to re-subscribe to make sure. I have action wobblers I haven't used yet. Again, you have inspired me and I LOVE AI. Don't believe this, but I saw the forest cut file just today at the store. Again, awesome card for your dad and a Big Happy 80th Birthday to him.
