Celebrate Life Midway Reminder for Quirky Crafts Challenge

It's not too late to enter your project at  Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. I'm here with my midway project as a gentle reminder that the theme is "Celebrate" where you need to have the word "Celebrate" somewhere on you card or project. 

With this all being said, I can't wait to show you my DT project with this cute little bear cross-stitching. Ok, those who know me really well, know that I want to break out in song with Kool and the Gang but first let me share with you my card!!! 

For my project, I chose to use Digi Blessings at Stitchy Bear Sewing Mends the Soul. With my love of the "needle-arts" this became the purrfect image for me to use for my card.

  • card measures 5.5 x 7 inches with Recollections card stock and scraps for background 
  • white scraps added as a border using Martha Stewart Eyelet Border Punch
  • image was colored using Copic R20, Prisma Colored Pencils, Whispers Markers,  and gel pen accents 
  • ribbon is from my stash which was wrapped around the background and then tied into a bow
  • word "Celebrate" was faux stitched on the little sampler the bear is doing
  • sentiment, "Happy Birthday! Congratulations on being born" had been from Create with TLC chalked around the edges 
  • "Made for You" silver heart charm is from Miriam's Crafting Supplies
  • heart buttons on the side are from my stash of buttons
  • Queen & Co. pearls were used for the pin heads
  • cupcake paper with EK cupcake border punch was used on the inside of my card with of course Stickles accents
  • sentiment, "If you lick the FROSTING off a cupcake, it becomes a MUFFIN And muffins are healthy! Celebrate today with a cupcake!" had been from Create with TLC was chalked around the edges, Stickle dots in the corners and mounted on a dark pink

I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to visit and enter your project at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog I can't wait to see your creations!
