"I saw a BEAR, I saw a BEAR..."

My days as a Girl Scout are coming back to me

in the form of a song... The BEAR Song

All that's missing is the "Tiddlee Ha Ha" at the end of each verse!!

Singing campfire songs yet?

No? How about "Happy BEARthday"

(his cake looks like a raging bonfire!)

Friday Sketchers

and the following challenge:

Our Creative Corner Analogous color trio

Aly’s Sunday Challenge for Guys

to create...

The "Flowers" as implied were not quite the look I was going for so,

I created musical "rocks"...clear pebbles

(*I raided my mosaic stash from my last mannequin*)

over-layed on drawn music notes...

  4. The images are so cute. The rocker bear reminds me of a pizza joint I used to go to as a child called Showbiz Pizza Place. They had big bears that would sing and play instruments (like Chuck e Cheese).
    Thanks for playing in the WoodwareUSA challenge this week. Good luck!


  5. Both cards are great. The flowers on the first card are so original.

    Hugs, Nanda

  6. Very pretty ArTish. Just love those flowers.

    P.S I took the Copic Certification course, and they taught us that technique. :)

  7. Your cards are amazing Tish! so are your images!!! Beautiful colors and details on both. Love the flowers on the first one ;)

    Wish you a wonderful day!

    Hugs, Anne

  8. Campfire's burning, Campfire's burning.....or Land of the silver birch. Well...all those songs are flooding back now! He he. The most relevant one I remember is 'going on a bear hunt'.

    Fabulous cards again Tish. Still loving the new images and just know you're going to wow us all with even more soon! You can't stop yourself can you? These two are fabulous!

  9. These are both super adorable Tish. Love the layered papers at the top on the first card along with the paper flowers ... GORGEOUS. Love the colors and those cute "bubbles" you made on the second. You are so talented my friend.

  10. love this guy, the blues and greens look gorgeous together.
    also saw the next post, that birthday bear's cake look good enough to eat.

  11. Amazing creations!! I love the music pebbles! And, those flowers are delish!! Thanks for playing along with the Woodware USA challenge this week!

  12. Oh my gosh, this is darling and my 11 year old son would go ga-ga for it! I totally dig the musical notes as well! So talented! (And we won't talk about your mad sewing skills...I am a little jealous!)

  13. Fabulous card, love those flowers you've made. I hope you realise I'm now singing away about smoke going up the chimney just the same, ha ha ha! Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers this week. xx

  16. Gorgeous card! Great distressing! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Throwdown!


  17. love that bear and all he does, his cake looks very yummy.
    I'm laughing because up to this year I was an adult girl scout, one of the camp cooks (largest encampment we served just over 200 people). Last time I was up at Camp Hoover the bears were out.
