One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday #253 and a Skating Bear!

Linda is our host this week and she is looking for bears on our Christmas cards
I had this NBUS stamp in my stash from Stampendous and it included a skating bear...score for me!  Super simple and very easy to make with some water color paper and my zigs.  I think it took about 5 minutes!

Go check out all the cute bears from the design team and we hope to see your card in the gallery!
We have one more week of challenges at the Merry Monday blog then we on the design team are all taking a summer break.  We will return on September 4!  But see you next week for our last challenge be sure to join us!
Wait...we are going to have our second Annual "Christmas in July Summer Link-Up" again this year!
There will be a $15 Starbuck GC up for grabs, so you all can still play for details next week!
Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. This is so cute Colleen! Your little skating bear is adorable!

  2. Love your little Teddy Bear skater. So cute and nicely water colored. Thanks for joining me this weekend at such a special Wedding and for all your help.

  3. Just so your sweet skating bear!

  4. Your little bear is so cute. Isn't it exciting when you have something in your stash that you are able to use for the first time. I am trying to use all my stamps that haven't had love yet and all the embellishments I have. I love his bright scarf and polka dot hat.

  5. Very cute card with the skating bear!!
