Have a Beary Merry Christmas

You know sooner or later a Bear was going to show up here for Christmas!!! Oh my, I have missed my bear cards. I paper pieced this little fellow and used the MS branch punch to dress him up for Christmas!!!! Oh, how I love this guy!!!! I made my presents out of glitter felt and ribbon.Here is the inside of my card. I made the bear on the inside a Christmas Tree Ornament. All you do is untie the bow and he is ready to hang on your tree. I made him on chipboard and put felt on the back to finish him off. I did the presents again for the other side.
Here he little guy. My husband says I am a big kid sometimes. He found me in bed reading my "Night Before Christmas" pop up book last night. I will have to take some pictures of it. As a paper crafter I am amazed by the pop-up images in it. Stayed tuned tomorrow.Those of you that visit know I am a bear lover/collector. I have 4 themed trees up this year in my home. I didn't put the Star War's one up this year. This is my Boyds Bear tree. It is filled with stuffed bears and Boyds Bear Ornaments. There are gold glitter snowflakes, sequined ornaments, and small blown glass ornaments as well.Just like my cards.....don't you think I really embellished this tree!!!!! LOL What can I say....I LOVE STUFF!!!! Ha, I just noticed you can see some a collector you are never suppose to take the tags off you know....YIKES.LOL I have been collecting since 1988-guess in a few years these might be Vintage...LOL At the very top of this picture you can see my Grinch....I always put something unusual on my theme tree to make it interesting...LOL

Thanks for stopping by. If anyone knows if there are other Bloggers who are Boyds Bear Lovers like me, would you kindly let me know. Thanks.

I hope to go up to PA where the factory is next year. We'll see. Some friends & I have been talking about it for a couple of years now. TFS all your talents with us!
