Grrrreat Time! August 29, 2008

Yeah for Fridays!  That means it is time for another one of Beate’s wsc.  My sample for today is a set I instantly fell in love with….Under the Stars.  These bears look like they are about to party hearty lol.

I’m not much of a camper.  Actually, I don’t think I have ever been camping or slept in a tent.  Although these bears are adorable, I’m so afraid of “wildlife”.   I’m even afraid to pitch a tent in the back yard and lounge out there with the kids….we had a black bear running around the neighborhood not too long ago and that got me a little worked up.   I’ll stick to stamping for now:)

Make sure to check out the rest of the team for more samples:

Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Jenn Balcer, Laurie Schmidlin, Lori Craig, and Sharon Harnist.

Will be back shortly with another friday sample.

    Hey I love what you did with the Bears. I am a camper; we do lots of camping with the scouts and I think i would flip out if I saw a bear! or snake for that fact. We did hear a bobcat in our camp one time early am.

    Did you mask the bears or cut them and place them? You did a fine job and I loved this set from the moment i saw it. I have tried to get the set Scouts at play off ebay and have never been successful since the price is always way up there. So this set will have to do. Nice to see you working on some whimsy stuff! So Cute cute cute!
