Flag bear

Hi Everyone, another quick post from me. I hope to be back in a little while to full time blogging? Apologies again for lack of commenting.

I just had to make this wonderful bear into a card. He looked like he was holding something, so, after colouring him with Distress Inks, I slit open just enough of his paw to hold the flag pole, which had been paper pieced and printed from Photoshop with the Welsh flag on it. I hope he gives you a smile. I just noticed it looks like I added the topper at a slant? It certainly didn't look like that when I made it! Perhaps my eyes need checking?

The bear is a progressive freebie from Limited Runs Digital Stamps for just a dollar you can join in.

What a fun card, Faith. I love the little bear holding the Welsh Flag, great idea! I know what you mean about things looking on a slant when you know they are straight..... and they say that the camera never lies!! xx

Looks like he was made to be holding the flag Faith, a great idea xx

A super card Faith, your bear looks fabulous with his little flag. It is probably the photo that is not quite straight, not the topper.

Great card and love the cute bear-I always take about 6 pics of my cards it's sooo annoying when they look fine -you post it and it looks wonky or colour not right -the camera certainly does lie!!!-It looks perfectly straight at the top so prop just the angle of the card
