MMSC47 Patchwork Quilt Bear Card

Welcome to my blog this morning.  We are on the MMSC47 already.  That just blows my mind for real.  This was a great sketch that Priscilla came up with this week, but another very challenging one.  I flipped the sketch again to suit my card.  Seems like I do that alot I guess.  I tried to do the prairie points for this card to give it the final touch of the patchwork quilt feel .  These cute bears were offered up as freebies at the Cuddly Buddly site.  They have some really cute digis, so I thought I would try one out on my card this week.  My envelope was made once again with the clever design made by Priscillastyles.   If you haven't already done so, drop by her store to check out her envelope kits and the many different varities and samples available.  Just beautiful.  Thanks for being our wonderful sponsor as well as hostess this week/month, Priscilla!

Drop by The Midnight Madness Blog to read the latest and find out what great prizes are being offered.   Sadly, we are saying goodbye to two of our DT sisters this week:  Sue and Jane.  They have shared many laughs and lots of inspiration with us and will be very missed.  We wish them the best of luck with what their future prospects may be.   Change is the one sure thing that we can always count on in life, and with this change, may life offer you many blessings. 

Congratulations to our MMM and MMR winners this week: MMM

Carolyn, I love these little cuddly buddies bears and your take on this weeks sketch. I have the bears but don't have a color printer so they wouldn't look the same in black and white!! Your colors and flowers really bring Spring to light...beautifully put together as always!
Big hugs my friend!
